Ottawa Creek Alpacas and Farm Shop is in the north-western corner of Delaware County, OH. We are easily accessible from I 71. When you drive into our parking area you will be greeted by our group of young male alpacas who crave attention, especially Ottawa Peruvian Blue Jacket (Jack) who is a full Accoyo. Since he is the largest, he usually manages to get most of the attention. Our farm shop is a part of the old barn and was once used as a milk house. Of course it has been renovated, but it still has the old beams and is definitely a farm shop with shelves brimming with alpaca products and a few other farm related products.
We started into the alpaca business when we were both 62 years old with no farming experience. Retirement didn't sound very exciting, and since we had lived out here for 30 years, alpacas was the answer to keep us moving and looking forward to each new day. We bought 3 females with very good lineage, and within 4 months we added a beautiful little female cria and an outstanding male cria. Of course we didn't know much, but they were very patient and kind to us. If we could change anything about this venture, it would have been to discover these wonderful creatures when we were at least 10 years younger. And also, it would have been nice to have had more female crias since we have only had 5 with a run of 12 straight males. The boys are beautiful and delightful group, but not good for a breeding program.
We have lots of stories to tell, and we've met many wonderful people throughout the alpaca network.
The number of people who come just to visit the alpacas is amazing. We have open farm and shop hours Tuesdays thru Saturdays, 11 am to 5 pm all year round plus Sundays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
