Inquiries & Questions
Farm Store & Yarn Shop
Our 1,200 square foot farm store and yarn shop is open for the season. Stop by to browse through the store and say hello to the alpacas. Alpaca feed is available for purchase in the store.
January - March: Closed
April - December: Friday-Sunday 10 am - 4 pm
Any changes to our standard hours are posted in our event calendar, on Facebook, and on Google.
The store offers 50+ types of alpaca products. From yarn and handknit clothing to fun alpaca toys and alpaca rugs, we have something for everyone. Alpaca feed is available for purchase so that you can hand feed the alpacas while visiting.
Farm Visits & Alpaca Tours
We welcome farm visits and offer interactive alpaca tours between the months of April through October. Due to the cold weather in Northern Michigan, farm tours are not conducted between November and March. If you're a local or visitor to the area, we'd be happy to take you and your group through a tour of our alpaca herd so that you can meet our furry friends up close and personal.
All tours are scheduled in advance and booked online.
We'll start booking tours for the 2022 season in February. Please visit the alpaca tour page to book your visit.
