Alpaca Dreams - Our Dream Come True

Limited Visits this Summer

We love having visitors but are currently accepting only a few visits a weeek due to Sarah recovering from a concussion. Due to the summer heat, visits are limited to mornings because once the heat sets in, our animals hunker down in their shelters by their fans and have little interest in coming out to greet visitors. Once the cool weather is back and Sarah has fully healed we expect to go back to having our full visit schedule.




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!
