Thank you for stopping by to take a look at our alpacas and yarn.

My background in fiber as the former co-owner of Uncommon Threads, a yarn shop in York, PA led to the raising and breeding of alpacas. I had been a spinner and wanted to have fiber animals on our small 5 acre farm. We have been raising alpacas since 2001. We picked alpacas because of the amazing properties of the fiber, the ease of care, and the joy they give us to be able to watch them out in the fields. We started with 3 and went from there. Our intention has been to keep our farm small enough to be able to continue to provide the daily care for the animals ourselves. We have had as many as 50 (too many) and have settled for around 35 for the last several years. Neal has been a wonderful support in this venture, keeping the farm running and going along with my every whim.

Painted Spring Farm Alpacas began at a small farm located in Southern PA close to the MD border. When the size of our herd increased and the animals needed more room, we moved to our current location in 2006. We are located just west of York in the Thomasville/Spring Grove area. We are easy to find just 1 mile west of the York Airport off of Rt. 30. For directions and a map, click on the more info tab.

Visitors and inquiries are always welcome. We schedule tours for small and large groups on the weekends and early mornings (9:00-9:30) and by appointment. If we are at the farm, our store is open and we would be glad to show you the animals. For a more in-depth tour, please call in advance to schedule your visit. We look forward to meeting you!
