Chantilly Ridge Alpaca Farm
If you have never met an alpaca, you are missing out on one cool creature. Seriously…look at that face…that goofy hairdo…what’s not to love?! Although they are related to llamas and camels, they aren’t build for “heavy lifting”…but they do have some of the softest fur in the world, which is shorn and woven in yarn for clothing. Chantilly Ridge has over 100 alpacas that they breed and sell, but they also offer alpaca yarn and products for sale. You can find a beautiful collection of these products at the New Smyrna Beach Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, along with farm fresh eggs and homemade goat’s milk soap. If you are looking for a more “up close and personal” experience with these gentle giants, Chantilly Ridge welcomes guests to come visit their herd, and even offers Farm Stays where you can live with the alpacas for a night…or a week!
