The farm is breathtaking. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The kids got to feed the goats and donkeys, and pet the alpacas. Fun day!

This is a special place! We stopped by the farm late in the afternoon to visit the shop. We knew the tours were not available at the time, though the staff nonetheless were extremely welcoming and provided a lot of information about the farm and its operations. Bought some incredibly comfortable alpaca socks (worth every penny!) and a staff member named Eric, who was very knowledgeable, was kind enough to take the time to walk us down to the alpaca and tell us all about them. We will definitely be back during the warmer months to spend a little more time there. Great for kids and adults too. Two thumbs up!

apple Hill Farm has something for all ages: llamas, alpacas, goats, chickens, dogs, cats and an interesting tour of a working farm. There is a tiny gift shop with wooden goods and yarn for sale.

There are goats, alpaca, dogs, horses and even a pig. This was an enjoyable tour and the children in the group really enjoyed the animals.

Came here for a friend's bachelorette trip since she loves animals. Our group of 5 had a tour to ourselves and had a great time visiting the alpacas and learning about all of the other animals on the farm. Our tour guide was fun to talk to and was happy to accomodate us. The dogs that live there are adorable and so sweet! The gift shop had a ton of adorable stuff as well and was an added bonus. Plus, the scenery is amazing!
