The farm specializes in fiber production from its herd of Huacaya Alpacas. The herd consists of over 30 male and female alpacas of a variety of colors: black, brown, fawn, grey, and white.
The fiber produced is hypoallergenic, and the herd is fed a predominantly organic diet. Our two herd sires are an award winner and a descendant of champion blood lines, both available for breeding. The farm also provides alpaca boarding.
Building the Herd
Buck Brook Alpacas began in 2013 through the procurement of alpacas from Nature’s Reserve alpaca farm in Callicoon, NY.
Many of our animals produce award-winning fibers which are available for sale as roving and yarn. Several of our award-winning males are also available for sire.
Our Farm Store currently offers pumpkins, gourds, and alpaca gold manure beans. The farm will grow to offer alpaca products including yarn, hats, scarves, socks, rugs and blankets as well.
The mailing address is: PO Box 95, Hortonville, NY 12745.
The physical address is: 39 Bestenheider Road, Roscoe, NY 12776
Hours of operation vary. Guests may visit the farm by making an appointment at 845-887-5652.
Buck Brook Alpacas Reviews
When I look back at my pictures from our week at Villa Roma I think this Alpaca farm was the highlight. We arrived in three cars with 8 kids and 8 adults and we all had a blast. Our guide, whose name ... more »

My family and I had a wonderful time at Buck Brook. The owner cathy was so kind and gave us the tour, and introduced us to all the farm's bunnies, cats, and alpacas. The store is filled with beautiful items. We really enjoyed it and 100% will be going back. Donations are welcomed to bring cash
What a wonderful family experience in the heart of the Catskills! We had an awesome visit learning about the alpacas from the farm's knowledgeable staff who provide tours free of charge. You are able to see over 150 alpacas (whom the owners refers to each by name) and the kids can feed them. These animals are docile and gentle, perfect for even the most apprehensive visitor. The grounds are also very clean and well maintained with grass, flowers and trees which makes the whole experience feel even more inviting. Though the tour is free, I assume the gift shop (which is packed with lovely alpaca wool gifts and souvenirs) is where the farm generates their income. Well worth adding to your agenda!
