Get a Warm Hug from Nature at Eastland Alpacas Farm & Store

Eastland Alpacas doesn’t always keep regular hours at their farm boutique, but during the holiday season, there is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to enjoy the farm’s exquisite selection, no “by chance” risk at this time of year! 

Eastland Alpacas is a 30-acre farm less than eight miles from Spooky Nook Sports Complex. In addition to raising alpacas, the farm also has an on-site boutique stocked with unique items made from alpaca fiber – sweaters, scarves, hats, gloves, socks, sofa throws, stuffed animals, yarn (ranging from raw fiber to roving, and yarn from the farm’s own animals, plus a wide color selection of authentic Peruvian yarns.) Visitors of any age are welcome to visit the farm, the alpacas, and the farm store. 

Holiday Open House hours are November 4, 10:00 am-4:00 pm.  November 5, 12:00 pm-4:00 pm, and November 11, 10:00 am-4:00 pm, November 12, 12:00 pm-4:00 pm.  During the Open House, visitors can come and see, feed, and even lead the Alpacas (like walking a dog!)  Farm wagon rides are offered.  A food stand benefitting a good cause dishes up good eats, the Alpacas show off by going skillfully through an obstacle course, and of course, the farm store itself is open with hundreds of wonderful gift items.  

Regular store hours continue from November 6 through December 31, 2023. Monday through Saturday 10:00 am-4:00 pm.  Sundays 1:00 pm-4:00 pm.  For GPS directions, use 2089 Risser Mill Road, Mount Joy, PA. Call (717) 653-2757.
