Fleece and Fun for Everyone! Jersey Shore Alpacas is a small, friendly farm located in Green Creek, just north of Cape May, NJ. We welcome visitors to our farm and store on Saturdays from 10am-4pm, from March-December. We also offer private tours Monday-Friday only (please see our website for more information on private visits). 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 Alpaca, Alpaca Yarn Company, our Coop, and farm yarn (when available).

The animals were very interesting to see up close - as most of the experience we have had were in pictures. The farm is shaded, so it is a... More

This was a highlight of our trip to Cape May! Kids (10 and 14) absolutely loved it, as did the adults. We went on the private tour which lasted about an hour. Jim provided each of us with a bag of carrots. He explained everything wonderfully and was fantastic answering questions. The gift shop had beautiful things in it. Kids... More

My wife and I called them this morning to see if they were open. They only run private tours during the week by appointment for a nominal fee and we were fortunate enough that they had a cancellation and could welcome us in. During the private tour you get to go into the pen and feed the animals up close... More

If you plan ahead, this is a great way to spend 1 to 2 hours and do something totally different. We had been wanting to do something different and off the beaten path. We saw the high ratings on trip advisor and figured we'd try it. Initially all of the tours were booked up. However, Jim called and left a... More

This is a must stop while at Cape May. The owners are just great peeps. The Alpacas are always smiling (and hungry for carrots)! And you leave with a smile on your face. Don't forget the gift shop...we picked up a cozy 3/4 length sweater and boy is it nice. If 6 stars were available, we give em 6!

My husband and I visited a few days ago. The owner Tish gave us information about these adorable animals as well as a bag of carrot sticks each for us to feed them. Fun and educational. It was a highlight of our trip to Cape May!

I made a reservation with my 7 year old daughter for a private tour. Jim took us through and was excellent. He gave us carrots to feed the alpacas and told us the best way to feed them.

This is a husband and wife business raising 21 alpacas in their backyard farm. The information provided was educational and they are very sweet people. We enjoyed feeding the animals.
