Alpaca Farms in Ontario
Spend time with these loveable animals on farm tours, scheduled feedings, alpaca walks, yoga retreats, picnics and even overnight farm stays.
You’ll also be able to find unique gifts, products and apparel made from the alpaca’s thick coat of fleece. Considered a luxury fibre, it’s softer than cashmere, warmer than most wool and hypoallergenic.
Note: Some farms may require bookings in advance. Don’t miss out! Check online to book your visit before spots fill up. There may be an age limit for the alpaca walks at some of these properties. Most farms suggest wearing comfortable, close-toed walking shoes.
