Breezy Hills Alpaca Farm
Breezy Hills Alpaca Farm in Woodbine, Maryland has a herd of nearly 50 Alpacas, and we recently spent a few hours visiting the farm where we took these photos. For just $5, they offer a tour of the farm where you can learn tons about the animals, the farm, and their wool. We highly recommend a trip to your local Alpaca farm as a great family travel outing.
The Alpaca is a species of South American camelid, similar to, and often confused with the llama. Alpacas are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of Southern Peru, Western Bolivia, Ecuador, and Northern Chile at high altitude. In the textile industry, “alpaca” primarily refers to the hair of Peruvian Alpacas, but more broadly it refers to a style of fabric originally made from alpaca hair, such as mohair, Icelandic sheep wool, or even high-quality wool.
In addition to Alpacas, Breezy Hills also raises chickens, goats and many more barnyard animals that we found roaming the property:
