You Can Hang Out With Alpacas At This One-Of-A-Kind Farm In Kentucky
Kentucky’s beautiful countryside is filled with farms of all varieties. You’ll find sprawling horse pastures, fields of crops, cows grazing on hillsides, and – if you visit the Richmond area – you might even spot a gathering of alpacas. Most Kentuckians don’t have the opportunity to actually live on a farm, but visiting for a tour is a great way to get a taste of the hard work and passion involved in keeping a farm up and running. One of the most unique farm tours in the state can be found at River Hill Ranch, where you can hang out with the loveably quirky alpacas that call it home.
