About Bluebird Farm Alpacas
Bluebird Farm Alpacas is a 15-acre farm located in Peapack, New Jersey that is the home to 21 adorable alpacas. At their farm, you get to learn, meet, interact with, feed, and take photos with their alpacas.
They also have a farm store you can visit with a bunch of products and gifts. They take all their alpaca fiber and send it to local artisans to create different products – farm to fashion! Their alpaca fiber is harvested once a year at “shearing time” and processed into yarn. It is so soft and and hypoallergenic. Alpaca fiber is as soft as cashmere and even warmer then wool! In their store, you can find hats, gloves, ear muffs, socks and more! Learn more about alpaca fiber here!

My Bluebird Farm Alpaca Experience
My husband and I did the Alpaca Walking Tour. The tour began with the staff explaining the differences between an alpaca and a llama, how to pet an alpaca, and all about their farm! They introduce you to some of their alpacas and you get the opportunity to feed, feel, and take photos with them. After feeding them, we got to explore the farm by taking an alpaca on a walk using a halter and lead line.
It was an amazing experience and I love that you were able to interact with all the alpacas. It was a lot of fun getting to explore the farm while walking your very own alpaca! They are so adorable and gentle and its cute that they have their own unique personality. When I was walking Heather Belle, I thought it was cute that she kept looking back at the alpaca pen during our walk to check on her friends! I’m so glad we got to visit one of the best alpaca farms in New Jersey!
