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).

We are looking forward to exploring the "farm" more, but we wanted to write a review because of the great folks running Jersey Shore Alpacas. Really nice, caring, honest, and kind people -- who ALSO happen to be knowledgeable about alpaca merchandise (softness, grade, thinness of thread, etc.). Alpaca merchandise can be relatively expensive, so it's nice having folks like... More

Had a great visit, feeding the alpacas, learning all their names and their stories! The owners are clearly very passionate about their animals. This is definitely something fun and different to do in the area! There isn't a flat fee for visiting or feeding them so we were a little confused about what to contribute. We ended up paying by...

Have been to Cape May many, many times over the years, but never knew there was an alpaca farm right there. Went on a rainy day, so the alpacas were not as fun to pet, but they were still happy to be fed, and the owner — a wonderful woman who stopped everything to show us around — gave us an up-close...

Loved visiting this Alpaca farm! Jim providing us with such an unique experience. First he gave us general information about the alpacas, describing their hahits, telling us each animal's name and relating stories about their personalities. You can just tell how much he cares about them. Our private tour included going into the pen to feed and pet the females.... More

Alpacas are neat animals and here you will see many different sizes and colors of Alpacas. Lots of hand made items using the alpaca wool. Great for kids to see this

What a great place for 'children' of all ages!!! The owners and staff were very helpful in explaining things and answering questions. And of course, the Alpacas were so cute and fun to watch. Can't wait to return in the spring.

We are so glad we stopped by to visit this place. Not only was it fun to feed the animals but we learned a lot about them. The little shop has some very fine (and super soft) alpaca-based items.
