Meet the Alpacas at the Spring Open Farm Weekend

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


Spring Farm Open Weekend

About the Event

Join us for a free family event as we celebrate spring and the opening of the season! We’re welcoming you into our 27-acre farm and we’re inviting alpaca lovers of all ages. The farm will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

We’ll be shearing in May, so the alpacas are all big, fluffy, and full of love. This will be one of the last times to view them before they receive their spring haircuts. If you’d like to play with a giant, living teddy bear, you’ll want to come out to see the alpacas before shearing.

  • Meet all the alpaca boys and girls
  • Meet Lucy the llama
  • Say hi to all of our growing 2023 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)

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.

No Outside Animals

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.
