So many of our farm visitors would love to own an alpaca but realize that alpacas want & need to be with other alpacas in order to thrive. They can live up to 20-plus years, creating a long-term commitment for future farmers and require specific care that is unique to alpacas.
Our Buy & Board program affords you the opportunity to purchase and board your alpaca here at Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm, where they not only receive outstanding care, but enjoy visitors from around the world while being surrounded by their loving alpaca family and friends for life. Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm offers you affordable prices for beautiful, well cared for alpacas. Boarding fees are a rate of $5.00 per day which covers your alpaca's food, daily care and required annual shots. The purchase price for the alpacas in our program have been drastically reduced because you will not be taking the alpaca off the farm. You can view the alpacas for sale by clicking on the Alpacas for Sale tab at the top of the website. As the buyer, you own the alpaca, the alpaca's annual harvest of fleece as well as any offspring. You even will create your own farm name and be registered in the National Alpaca Registry where your alpaca will be registered to your account. Should you decide to terminate your ownership and boarding arrangement at the farm, we will assist you in the selling of your alpaca to a new owner who will continue to board the alpaca here at Northern Solstice. In this way, you can choose how long you want to own an alpaca or maybe even more than one. This is a great program for fiber artists too! We do provide both purchase and boarding contracts and spend a significant amount of time reviewing the details of the contracts and the Buy & Board program with you before completing a sale. We currently have Buy & Board participants living all across the United States. Many visit regularly and some only once or twice a year. All participants are able to view their alpacas on our Farm Live Stream which in operation 24 hours a day. Zoom tours are also another way to enjoy them when you are not in the area. All of our participants love their alpacas and find joy in being involved with raising the most sustainable fiber animal in the world.
