Be spoilt by choice at Nevalea Alpacas, we farm over 700 alpacas, the largest alpaca farm in New Zealand. You're invited to come for a farm visit, where you can meet our friendly alpacas. We enjoy sharing our knowledge and offer visitors ‘the ultimate alpaca experience’ giving you the opportunity to get up close and feed the alpacas by hand, touch their fibre and if you are lucky view a birth. Visit the farm shop where all garments are knitted with 100% New Zealand fibre. It is the fibre from our beautiful alpacas that is used in the products and garments for sale in our farm shop.
