My children loved the animals there even though the alpacas spit! It was a nice break from the touristy stuff we did while on Block Island. The gift shop is great if you like wool and yarn,

Love the two old tortoises and the big Hare. This is one of the best Farms - lots of love there, lots of varieties of animals. One of my faves to visit on Block Island!

Even the adults love petting these animals! So cute. And it is free! You can buy yarn from their Alpacas in the shop and also have yoga among the animals!

We really liked this experience. They have quite a few different animals. They have turtles, a rabbit, horses, donkeys, goats, birds, alpacas and more. The alpaca section you can actually go in and walk around, sit feed, and pet them.
