Along one of America’s most scenic roads, you will find Peaceful Heart Alpacas. Our 27 acre, alpaca farm is located at Mile Post 204 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, just a few miles from the Virginia/North Carolina border. We feel blessed every day to wake up to pastures full of beautiful animals and a fiber arts studio and store located in our 100 year old farm house.
Our alpaca farm and store is always open to visitors, free of charge. April-December we are open Mondays through Saturdays 10am-5pm and Sundays 1-5pm. January-March we are open Fri- Sat 10am to 4pm & Sundays 1-4pm, or during the week by appointment. During the winter we always recommend you call to check the weather before you visit. The farm is easily accessible from the Parkway and local highways. You´ll find directions here.
We love every aspect of raising alpacas, from our time with them each day to spinning and creating with their fiber. Our family is dedicated to raising alpacas with gentle temperaments and excellent fiber in a peaceful environment for alpacas and people.
Our alpacas are truly exceptional, chosen carefully for their fine fiber and bred to improve on that fineness while paying close attention to conformation, density and temperament. Our Reserve Color Champion Lord Tennyson is a great example of the success of our breeding program. Bloodlines represented in our herd include Hemingway, Bueno, Caligula, The Aga Khan, The Silversmith, Andean Gold, Peruvian Grand Master, Inca’s Ransom, Jedi Accoyo, and Bolivian Ice Man. In addition to high quality breeding stock, we also sell sweet natured geldings as pets and fiber animals.
Be sure to visit our farm store. If you are looking for alpaca yarn or alpaca fiber to spin, we have a wide selection. We offer fiber art classes, such as weaving, felting, knitting, spinning,and crochet, throughout the year. Check back with us often for updates to our schedule. Our store is full of beautiful handmade alpaca clothing and household items made locally or Fair Trade items imported from Peru. You can also view and purchase the items through our online Farm Store.
Come by for a visit and a trip along “America’s Favorite Drive”. We are located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, directly across from the overlook at Mile Post 204. Just minutes from I-77 and Highway 52, Peaceful Heart Alpacas is easily accessible from Virginia and North Carolina. Meet our alpacas and learn more about them, then take time to experience the beauty and history of the Blue Ridge Mountain communities.
We look forward to meeting you!
