Every December, the farm sponsors a weekend Christmas event.
This charming farm is located about a 30 minute drive north of Trenton. It makes for an incredible outing with kids to view the Llamas and Alpacas. Staff are extremely friendly… the times we’ve been there they’ve made a point of coming over and soliciting (and answering) questions.
You can even feed the animals. For two quarters inserted into a “gumball machine” filled with Alpaca Chow, you can fill a blue frisbee and carry it over to the animals. The Alpacas are trained to eat out of the frisbees, and seem disappointed if you approach them without one.
Adults will find a visit fascinating as well, and will also enjoy the farm store which sells unique items, many hand made from the Alpaca wool. While not cheap, these items are priced lower than the equivalent quality in high end retail outlets.
Think about visiting the farm, and combining your visit with a bicycle ride (especially the Llama Loop, which passes within a few hundred feet of the farm’s driveway), or a hike in either Baldpate Mountain or Washington Crossing State Park (both of which you’ll pass on the drive to the farm).
What are Llama’s and Alpacas? They’re originally from South America, raised in the Andes for their wool. Llamas, which are larger, are also used as pack animals (similar to the way goats are sometimes used in Europe and North America).

One thought on “Lleapin’ Llamas”
Cast away farm, very hard to find, staff are extremely haughty.
Editor’s comment: I’m surprised you had that experience there. On my first visit I showed up on a bicycle, grimy from a 20 mile ride. One of the farmers saw a couple of us looking at the Llamas, came over, and spent 15 minutes talking to us about the different animals, and answering questions. So “haughty” is far from the first word that leaps to my mind when describing the “staff”.
