NAFD with Book Signing + Spinning Demos

It's that time of year again! We'll be open to the public for NAFD (National Alpaca Farm Days) on Saturday, 9/28 and Sunday, 9/29 from 10am - 3pm. No appointment necessary that weekend! Just come on by, rain or shine. Our animals will be ready for visitors and our gift shop is fully stocked. And as a special treat this year, on SUNDAY we will have spinning demonstrations as well as a book signing! A very talented young lady, Astrid Tauber (10 years old) will be giving spinning demonstrations. And Pat Schoch, author of the children’s book 'The Town of Alpaca', will hold a book signing here on Sunday, 9/29. ‘The Town of Alpaca’ won third place in the Children Story Books Fiction category at the 25th Annual CIPA EVVY Book Awards this year. Pat’s book will be available for sale here on both Saturday and Sunday, but if you want to meet the author and get a signed copy, you’ll want to come on Sunday when Pat will be holding a book signing. Hope to see you here!




Call or Email to visit our Alpacas, LLamas and Gift Shop.

We love welcoming visitors to meet and learn about our animals. Visitors get to meet our alpacas and llamas and learn about their personalities and 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. All our tours end in our gift shop so you can see things made from their wonderful fiber. Our gift shop has 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 accept cash and credit cards.

We do not have regular hours but all you have to do is call (919.340.0070 - Please leave a message if we do not answer) 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 do not currently charge a fee because we do not want that to stand in thee way of anyone being able to come but we do Really appreciate donations (ie: $5 or $10 per person) that goes 100% toward the animals' expenses. SPECIAL NOTE.....our animals do not do well with dogs and other 'scary' animals 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 brought them home. We thoroughly enjoy having visitors come out to meet our animals and learn about alpacas and llamas!
