Items to Purchase
We encourage our Harvest Host visitors to sign up for a tour so they can get up close and personal with our alpacas and Lucy. The alpacas will love the treats you provide, and they’ll be eager to take photos with you. Host Jason will spend an hour providing alpaca education, sharing stories about the alpacas, and providing entertainment as he recounts the family’s journey from city dwellers to alpaca farmers. After your tour, you'll want to make time to shop in the gift shop that is filled with over 1,000 different alpaca products. From sweaters, coats, and slippers to handmade hats, mittens, and scarves you’ll find great apparel made with the alpaca fiber by Grandma Lil or by Peruvian artisans. The store also offers one of the largest selections of 100% alpaca yarn you’ll find. And if you’d like to add some décor to your RV, you’ll also discover alpaca rugs, blankets, and pillows that make you want to snuggle.
