Faraway Farm

Alpacas are gentle, curious creatures with thick fleece that gets sheared once a year and woven into buttery yarn. Here, Shakti, a rose gray alpaca, takes a moment to reflect on her surroundings.

Leda Blumberg and Steve Cole are the owners of the magical Faraway Farm. Blumberg grew up on this beautiful, rolling property, where she and Cole breed and care for 24 charming alpacas. The farm is used for photo shoots (looking for unique engagement photos that will surely stand out on social media?) along with special events — and visitors are welcome by appointment.



Above: With copious fields to roam and relax on, the alpacas lead an idyllic existence. As cute from the back as they are from the front, the end of the day means an enthusiastic return to the barn, along with a nutritious meal. Below: Faraway Farm has a shop to purchase yarn spun from their alpacas’ fleece (each skein is identified with the individual animal’s name). They also carry alpaca garments, rugs, toys, and interesting handmade items.
