Explore the alpaca livestock industry with a visit to a farm or ranch during National Alpaca Farm Days, September 25-26. Sponsored by the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA), the weekend is an invitation to visit their member farms and ranches in the United States and Canada.

From meeting these beautiful, inquisitive animals in person to experiencing luxurious alpaca products at individual farm stores, there will truly be something for everyone.

While most alpaca farms welcome visitors throughout the year, National Alpaca Farm Days are sure to include special activities and educational opportunities. 

For a complete list of participating farms and ranches, visit the National Alpaca Farm Days website.

 

About Alpacas

Alpacas, cousins to the llama, are beautiful, intelligent animals native to the Andean Mountain range of South America, particularly Peru, Bolivia and Chile. The United States first commercially imported alpacas in 1984, and more than 150,000 ARI (Alpaca Registry Inc.) registered alpacas now reside in North America.
