    What to Expect

    Join us for a free family event as we celebrate National Alpaca Farm Day! We’re opening up our 27-acre farm to the public and we’re going to have oodles of fun for alpaca lovers of all ages.

    • Meet all the 40+ alpaca boys and girls
    • Meet Lucy the llama
    • Say hi to all of our 2023 alpaca babies (8 crias)
    • Feed the alpacas
    • Take selfies with the alpacas
    • Shop for alpaca products in our 1,200 square foot store
    • Take advantage of farm day discounts in the store
    • Grab some great food (pulled pork, brats, and hot dogs) from Howard’s Great Lakes Grill

    Let's Give Back to the Community

    This is a free event, however, this year we’d like to use this time to give back to our local community. We are asking visitors (who are able) to bring a nonperishable food item or small cash donation for The Buckley Food Pantry.

    The pantry serves 200 households and families, which equals about 700 people each month across Buckley, Mesick, Manton, Cadillac, Grawn, Traverse City, Copemish, Thompsonville, Kaleva, and the Bear Lake areas.

    If you are unable to provide a donation, that is okay too. We ask those who can give, to give. For those who cannot, please know we understand and you are welcome to attend without providing a donation.

    Please Note

    • Since we are a working farm, dogs are not allowed on the farm. We love dogs as much as you do, but we cannot have dogs on the farm due to the stress they cause alpacas.
    • Lunch purchases will require purchase.
