Buck Brook Alpacas, Roscoe

Farm · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Buck Brook Alpacas strives to raise alpacas in a comfortable and environmentally friendly setting while promoting agriculture within the region and inspiring and educating customers on the benefits of farming.

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.

  • Awesome time at this farm! Everyone is super nice and knowledgeable! We did the basic farm tour ($10) that you need to make reservations for. It was a tour about 45 minutes. There are more expensive.....  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!
