SHEPHERD'S CREEK ALPACAS is located just outside the village of Trumansburg, an easy 10 miles from Ithaca or Watkins Glen, NY. We raise and breed quality alpacas and operate our alpaca product shop in the beautiful Finger Lakes region.
TO ARRANGE A VISIT TO THE FARM AND SHOP, PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL US, PREFERABLY AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE.
**Please keep in mind that we are a small family farm and we don't have regular hours, so we need to be able to open the store and prepare the alpacas for your visit! Since we will open our farm for your visit, we appreciate a call if for some reason you can't make it at your visit time.
When you visit the farm you can learn all about the alpacas, feed the alpacas, feel their wonderful fleece, and take a selfie with them if you'd like! After you meet the alpacas, please plan to do some shopping in SHEPHERDS CREEK ALPACAS FARM SHOP! We have beautiful, luxurious hand-made accessories, yarns & rovings from our own alpaca fleece, as well as commercially made sweaters, socks, hats, alpaca dolls, teddy bears & more! (Of course, you are welcome to come just to visit the Farm Shop!)

**Farm visits are free to the public, but we do rely on our Farm Shop sales to help support the farm. If shopping isn't your thing, please consider making a small donation! Thank You!

About Shepherd's Creek Alpacas:
People ALWAYS ask us…"How did you ever get into this??". An educator (Barb) and a physician (Marc), we stumbled on these delightful animals in 2003, fell in love, and began a life journey that was both unforeseen and wonderful! We started small with Barb working ½ time and taking care of the alpacas, and now keep a herd of 12 to 20 alpacas, an alpaca farm store, and Barb is full time on the farm.
Our herd has evolved to include some fiber animals which we will sell to good homes as pets and fiber producers, solid foundation girls with proven birthing histories, and a growing number of elite alpacas who are proving themselves in the show ring each year. On a given day we might have up to 20 alpacas on the farm, including girls here for breeding and a few who are boarding. We treat each and every alpaca on the farm with individual attention and care, which we believe is the reason our health and birthing history is excellent. We feed and clean twice a day, interacting with our animals using trust-building husbandry techniques. People are forever surprised when the alpacas come running when they see us, or when we call "paca, paca, paca!". All of the youngsters are halter trained and most of them will come up for a sniff or a kiss.
We believe that the alpaca industry is alive and
