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 5th, 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.. November 6th , 12:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m., and November 12th , 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., November 13th , 12:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.. 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 while the Alpacas show off by going skillfully through an obstacle course. The farm store is open with hundreds of wonderful gift items. Regular store hours continue from November 7th through December 31st, 2022. Monday through Saturday 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Sundays 12:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
