Alpaca Owners Association, Inc. (AOA) invites you to visit their member farms and ranches on National Alpaca Farm Days – September 27th and 28th. This is a unique opportunity for the public to explore the many aspects of the alpaca livestock industry in the United States and Canada.

Alpacas, cousins to the llama, are beautiful, intelligent animals native to the Andean Mountain range of South America, particularly Peru, Bolivia and Chile.

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

Visitors can also learn how alpacas are a green business opportunity, as they are animals that are sensitive to their environment in every respect!

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