About our farm:

Apple Mountain Alpacas is a Georgia alpaca farm modeled after ancient traditions from Peruvian alpaca herds. We breed for improvement, help others with their adventure by sharing genetic advancements, and create elite one of a kind products using the fiber from our herd.

As an alpaca farmer, our renewable crop is alpaca fiber. Our finished products are one of a kind wearables that are softer than cashmere and warm like polar bear fur.

Our passion is not just alpacas, but the amazing products we can make from their fiber. It’s our pleasure to create and sell locally grown, eco friendly, & sustainable one-of-a-kind products.

We also love to share the alpaca lifestyle with others. We offer classes and exclusive tours on a regular basis (by appointment only).
