Fall Open Farm Weekend for National Alpaca Farm Day

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT


Alpaca Farm Day Fall 2024

Two Days of Family Fun

Join us for a free family event as we celebrate National Alpaca Farm Day! We’re opening up our 27-acre farm to the public and we’re going to have oodles of fun for alpaca lovers of all ages. On Saturday and Sunday, we welcome you to join us from 10-4 for alpaca entertainment and shopping.

  • Meet all the alpaca boys and girls
  • Meet Lucy the llama
  • Say hi to all of our 2024 alpaca babies
  • Feed the alpacas (feed provided for free)
  • Take selfies with the alpacas
  • Shop for alpaca products in our 1,200-square-foot store
  • Take advantage of farm day discounts in the sale tent
  • Grab lunch from Howard’s Great Lakes Grill (purchase required)

Since we are a working farm, dogs are not allowed on the farm. We love dogs as much as you do, but we cannot have dogs on the farm due to the stress they cause alpacas.

Let’s Give Back to the Community

This is a free event, however, this year we’d like to use this time to give back to our local community. We are asking visitors (who are able) to bring a nonperishable food item or small cash donation for The Buckley Food Pantry.

The pantry serves 200 households and families, which equals about 700 people each month across Buckley, Mesick, Manton, Cadillac, Grawn, Traverse City, Copemish, Thompsonville, Kaleva, and the Bear Lake areas.

If you are unable to provide a donation, that is okay too. We ask those who can give, to give. For those who cannot, please know we understand and you are welcome to attend without providing a donation.
