National Alpaca Farm Days Sept. 29 & 30

Alpaca Dreams will be participating in NAFD (National Alpaca Farm Days) again this year. Our farm will be open to the public, rain or shine, from 10 - 3 on both Saturday, Sept 29, and Sunday, Sept 30. Come and join us and meet our alpacas and llamas; view our educational posters and learn about these amazing creatures; and shop at our Alpaca Dreams Gift Shop. Many alpaca farms around the country participate in NAFD and there is no charge for farm visits this weekend. Hope to see you here!




Alpacas, LLamas, and a Gift Shop.....Our Alpaca Dream come true! Please Call or Email to setup a visit.

**SPECIAL NOTE FOR THE SUMMER: Summers are hot here in NC but we still welcome visitors on weekdays and weekends. On hot days our alpacas and llamas usually stay tucked in their shelters with their fans so we are only scheduling visits for the mornings (9:00 and 10:00) when some of them will still come out to see who is visiting. If you have a special situation and need to come later please let us know and we will do our best to work out a visit for you.*

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 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!
