National Alpaca Farm Days

The weekend of Sept 23 & 24 is National Alpaca Farm Days. It is also the weekend of the Carolina Eastern Farm Tour which allows visitors to visit 26 area farms....one of which is Alpaca Dreams. If you come to visit us as part of Alpaca Farm Days and are not interested in joining the Eastern Farm Tour (for which a fee is charged), please mention Alpaca Farm Days at the registry desk. We will be open 1 - 5 on both Saturday and Sunday.




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; 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 a $5 donation per person that goes toward the animals' expenses.....but we don't want that to stand in the way of anyone visiting.

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.
