Overview

Fleece and Fun for Everyone! Jersey Shore Alpacas is a small, friendly farm located in Green Creek, just north of Cape May, NJ. We are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, but we are accepting private visits only Monday-Friday during January and February. We will reopen to the public for our “open” Saturdays on March 3rd. We'll give you some carrots to feed to our friendly 'pacas during your visit (both open days and private visits). There is no admission charge on "open days," but donations are accepted and much appreciated. You'll love meeting our curious alpacas and browsing in our shop for soft, warm alpaca clothing and cuddly toys! We also carry more than 20 different types of alpaca yarn from Blue Sky Fibers, Alpaca Yarn Company, our Coop, and farm yarn (when available). Hope to see you soon!
