Buck Brook Alpacas is a 38-acre picturesque alpaca farm nestled in the Western Catskills, two hours from metro NYC. We have been raising and breeding alpacas since 2013. We have strong genetic bloodlines derived from several prestigious herdsires including Snowmass Best Man, Everlasting Paramount, Velvet Touché, and Matrix Majesty. Approximately 30 cria are born on our farm each year. Our farm agists alpacas for other farms and we take pride in giving them the utmost care. Our farm is certified for international quarantine and quarantines are rotated quarterly. We strive to raise our animals in a clean and environmentally friendly farm.
Sustainable farming is our focus as we harvest our alpaca fiber. Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic, lightweight yet, warm and water-resistant. Our animals are shorn once a year in May. Our fiber is cleaned and spun into yarn locally and sold in our Farm Store, as well as blankets, rugs and many other items created with alpaca fiber. We also showcase our animals and sell our products at several local markets.
Agri-tourism is a large part of the income derived on our farm. We host thousands of visitors on our farm annually. We market the industry as a whole, by raising awareness of alpacas and the value and uses of their fiber.
Our farm is located 7 miles from the Roscoe exit off of Route 17. We are open 7 days a week, year-round. The last Saturday in September we host our National Alpaca Day and Fall Festival. This is a great day to take in the beautiful fall views and join in crafts, games, and meet our animals. Please inquire about our guest accommodations and relax on a working state of the art alpaca farm.
Please call ahead if you would like to visit, groups and bus tours are welcome.
