Overview

Bay Springs Farm is a preserved working farm situated on what was the last Dairy Farm in Cape May County. Today it is the site of the largest alpaca farm in the County with more than 26 alpacas in a wide range of colors. We specialize in breeding black and gray and colored huacaya alpacas. All our alpacas sell with full guarantees and service support, plus free boarding for 6 months.. We carry all types of alpaca yarn, fleece and finished products--sweaters, throws, socks and scarves--in our farm store. We are open to the public every Sat. & Sun. from 10-4 or at other times by appointment.

We've visited at least five times on our trips to Cape May. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The alpacas act like alpacas but are friendly enough. We bring carrots to feed them by hand. Visit the small shop there to purchase items made...More
