Jersey Shore Alpacas, Cape May

4.9
Come enjoy these adorable creatures. We are here for you to learn about alpacas. In our farm store, Absolutely Alpaca, you will find quality alpaca clothing, such as capes, shawls, and sweaters, handknit scarves, hats, earwarmers, socks, gloves, toys, a large assortment of luxurious alpaca yarn, and other unique gift ideas. You can expect your visit to last 30-45 mins. Admission is free, though donations are appreciated. Private appointments are also available -there is a charge of $20 per group up to 4 people (additional guests are $5 each), but we will allow you to go into the paddock with the alpacas as part of your private visit - sort of like swimming with the dolphins, but without water!

September-December Schedule:

We are open to the public on Saturdays 10am-4pm, without an appointment (free, but we do have a donation box on the fence :) Also, private appointments are available Monday-Friday - cost is $20 for a group of up to 4 people and $5 for every additional person). Please call or email us for a reservation. It is best to reserve a tour at least 1-2 days in advance during the fall, but you are welcome to call/email for last minute availability. Reservations must be confirmed in advance. We are closed on Sundays.

Note: We are not able take private appointments during any "Open Farm" day (there just are not enough of us or the alpacas to do so). Thanks for understanding.

  • My husband and I were celebrating our 33 anniversary in Cape May, NJ and were looking for things to do in the area. I saw a listing for Jersey Shore Alpacas so off we went. We were met by the proprietors, Tish and Jim. They gave us a tour of the alpaca enclosure, let us feed them carrots, and explained their various personalities. Tish answered all our questions and was very friendly. They also have a wonderful little shop where you can purchase all kinds of items including scarves, sweaters, socks, mittens, hats, blankets etc. Tish was a wealth of knowledge about the different kinds of alpaca wool. I highly recommend this tour.
  • What a wonderful experience! We were greeted immediately by one of the owners, Tish I believe, who shared the history of their farm and answered all of our questions. I wish I'd taken more photos but we were too busy learning Alpaca facts and interacting with the animals. They provide you with free carrots to feed the animals and advice on how to make the experience best for the animals as well as the visitors. The Alpacas were well behaved and very friendly. The farm itself is very well kept and the gift shop is loaded with crazy Alpaca merch. We learned a lot and had a wonderful time at the farm. Thank you!
  • This place was an absolute delight - one of our highlights from visiting Cape May. We didn't know what we were getting into, but we were so glad to we made this decision. The owners/keepers of the Alpacas were incredibly friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable. It's a strange experience getting right up in the pin with animals and people you don't know, but they made us feel right at home. If you're in Cape May looking for a fun and interesting activity, I would look no further than Jersey Shore Alpacas.
  • So much fun! The people working there were able to answer all my questions about the alpacas. Truly enjoyed feeding them and Petting them. I will go back with my kids and husband... I know they will love it!!
  • Highly memorable and fun visit. The people were informative and the alpacas were adorable.
