Set atop one of the highest peaks of the beautiful Catskill Mountains in upstate New York is our 40-acre family farm, Buck Brook Alpacas, where we raise and breed over 100 Huacaya alpacas. Other farm residents include (but are not limited to!) Angora bunnies, chickens, cats, and a pig named Daisy.
We offer 30-minute alternating public and private tours during the winter months. shopping alpaca gifts, or taking in the scenic view with a picnic.
Meet your friendly and knowledgeable guide at the big barn 5 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time for sign-in, then learn all about our fabulous fiber-makers, the Huacaya alpaca and Angora rabbit, and how their luxuriously-soft and sought-after fleece is processed and crafted into a multitude of home and personal goods without any harm to the animal.
Feed the alpacas and meet the new babies (called "crias"). Find out what the first year in the life of an alpaca is like. We cover breeding, showing, feeding, and a bit history.
Fun and learning for all ages, plus play a part helping to to spread awareness about these sustainably-beneficial fiber producers!
