Think Alpaca Gifts for the Holidays

If you are looking for really special gifts that you won't find in every store and mall around, consider buying something alpaca! Our online store and our farm Gift Shop are loaded with special items that will delight your friends and family. And for alpaca and llama lovers, consider an animal sponsorship as a gift. For a year, the gift recipient will get quarterly notes from their animal as well as a birthday card! For more information, look under 'More Info' > 'Animal Sponsorships' near the top of our farm page.




Alpacas, LLamas, and a Gift Shop.....Our Alpaca Dream come true! Please Call or Email to setup a visit.
We love welcoming visitors to meet and learn about our animals. Visitors get to meet our alpacas and llamas and learn about their unique characteristics. We have educational displays that show our crias (baby alpacas) the day they were born; interesting and unusual characteristics; the differences between alpacas and llamas; how their fiber goes from shearing to yarn; and what they look like before and after shearing. Our gift shop is open whenever anyone visits and it has lots and lots of alpaca items, some of which are handcrafted. Items made from our animals' fiber have picture(s) attached of the animal(s) whose fiber was used to make the item. Many people like to find items made from the fiber of their favorite animal.

We do not have regular hours but all you have to do is call (919.340.0070) or email us (alpacadreamsnc@gmail.com) to set up a date/time so we are sure to be home when you come to visit. You may even be able to come out the same day if we are home. We don't charge a fee but do appreciate donations (ie: $5 per person) that goes 100% toward the animals' expenses.....but we don't want that to stand in the way of anyone visiting. Oh...and just a note.....our animals don't so well with dogs so we appreciate our visitors leaving their pets at home when they visit.

We first learned about alpacas in early 2010 and fell in love with them...so much so that we decided the 'alpaca life' is how we want to live in our retirement.

Over the next couple years we acquired our herd by purchasing 8 adults and having 2 crias born to us. During that time we were boarding all of them while we sold our house. Starting out we had no idea it would take more than a year and a half to sell our house and finally find our own farm. But by July 2012 we finally had sold our house; purchased a farm; prepared it for our herd; and finally Brought Our Alpacas Home!

We feel very blessed to have a passion that we share in our retirement years. It seems so natural to see our alpacas right outside our back door.

You can find us on Facebook.....just search for Alpaca Dreams, LLC. And remember, all you have to do to setup a visit to meet our special animals is to call or email us. And if you've already met all our critters but just want to shop at our Gift Shop, that is fine too.
