Holidays are Just Around the Corner!

The Holidays are just ahead! Visits are still by appointment, but if you just want to run out to shop at our gift shop, and not do an actual farm tour, just give us a call or email us and if we are home, we can open up the gift shop for you the same day.

Weekend hours will be limited in November and the first weekend in December because of our participation in Holiday Bazaars. Each of those will be posted on our Facebook page.

And....with cooler weather we should be able to have afternoon visits again soon!




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.
NOTE: If you would just like to come out and shop, you can just call us and if we are home we will open the gift shop for you. You do not have to schedule a tour in order to shop.

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 out 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!
