M & M Alpaca Farm of North Carolina, at 7084 US Highway 64 W, Pittsboro, will begin offering tours, starting on August 6th, 2020.
On the tours you’ll learn about the alpacas, why M & M Alpaca Farm raises them, what they eat, about shearing, about fiber works, and much more.
The tours will be offered Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Tours are $5 a person.
You’ll need to make an appointment in advance by emailing Laina Peck-Bostwick at email@example.com, or by calling 336-465-8211.
In a Facebook update they said that they’re getting booked up very quickly, so you might not be able to get a spot until September. But they’ll be doing the tours all year.
This is a busy working farm, so you might need to leave a message and she’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
They’re doing the tours in a safe way, which means:
- No more than 6 people in a group, including kids
- Masks are required–no exceptions
- Sanitizer will be be required, and supplied by the farm
- Don’t come to the farm if you’ve been feeling unwell or if you’ve been exposed to the virus
These are no-touch tours. You’ll enjoy seeing the alpacas and learning about them, but without touching them.
It’s very hot outside, so come prepared with a water bottle and sunscreen. No outside food or pets are allowed.
During your tour, the alpacas might come up to the fence, offering a great photo opportunity, but that’s not guaranteed. It’s up to the alpacas!
You can also just visit their store, but you need an appointment for that as well. At their store, they sell alpaca fleece items like yarn, socks, hats, gloves, scarves, rugs, sweaters and more.
