Buck Brook Alpacas is a 38 acre picturesque alpaca farm nestled in the Western Catskills, two hours from metro NYC. Our foundation herd was acquired from Nature's Reserve Alpacas in 2013. The foundation herd consisted of strong genetic bloodlines including Peruvian Legacy and Snowmass Matrix. Our leading herdsire Legacy's Quest is an exceptional male, sired by Snowmass Matrix Quest and our leading foundation female Snowmass Legacy's Joy. ( Peruvian Legacy daughter) Legs as we like to call him remains in the top 1% of EPD's at four years of age. Our up and coming herdsires include the genetics from infamous sires such as Accoyo America Road Warrior, Snowmass Extreme, Snowmass Matrix and Patagonia's Lennox, to name a few. We take time in our breeding decisions. We focus on high quality consistent offspring from our exceptional females.
We strive to raise our animals in a clean and environmentally friendly farm.

Sustainable farming is our focus as we harvest our alpaca fiber. Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic, lightweight yet, warm and water resistant. Our animals are shorn once a year in May. Our fiber is cleaned and spun into yarn locally and sold in our Farm Store, as well as blankets, rugs and many other items created with alpaca fiber. We also showcase our animals and sell our products at several local markets.

Our farm is located 7 miles from the Roscoe exit off of Route 17. The last Saturday in September we host our National Alpaca Day and Fall Festival. This is a great day to take in the beautiful fall views and join in crafts, games and meet our animals. Please inquire about our guest accommodations and relax on a working state of the art alpaca farm.
Please call ahead if you would like to visit, groups and bus tours are welcome.
