Apple Hill Farm – A place where animals talk and people listen.
07.24.13 11:29 AM




Apple Hill Farm started in 2002 with 2 pregnant female alpacas and one young male alpaca. We are now home to 22 alpacas. In addition to alpacas, we have added horses (some of ours, and some who board), llamas, goats, donkeys, chickens, dogs and cats. We strongly believe that animals need a purpose, so every animal on the farm has a stated job or position. Our animals are treated with great care, respect and love.

The animals have their own unique ways of welcoming visitors to Apple Hill. Jack and Maw, our full sized donkeys, bray loudly and then snort to herald arrivals. Hannah, our quarter horse mare, bops her lips together to beg for carrots and treats, and July Moon, our friendliest alpaca, will lay at your feet so you can feel her fiber.

Our passion is empowering people to develop a new and deeper connection with animals. These are some of the ways we convey that passion:

Farm tours and school tour
Alpaca breeding and Alpacas For Sale
Breeding miniature donkeys
Boer goat breeding and NC Boer Goats for sale
Horse boarding
Alpacas NC shearing clinics
Alpacas NC care clinics
Intensive healing care for horses
Gentling of mistreated animals
