The store was originally located at the four corners in the Village of Pittsford, but moved in December 2010 back to the farm location in Bloomfield. The farm is located just North of Routes 5 & 20, in between Route 64 and Route 65. For information on farm tours see Lazy Acre Alpacas.
The store is owned by Mark and Sharon Gilbride and managed by Dawn Nicole Johnson.
Those unable to do stairs can have items brought down the stairs to you.
About Alpacas and Their Fiber
What makes alpaca special: items made from our fiber are naturally hypoallergenic, organic and flame retardant, the warmest fiber on the planet (even when wet), stronger and softer than wool or cashmere, naturally windproof, easy to care for, stays cleaner longer than other fabrics (is lanolin free and doesn't hold dust), is stain and wrinkle resistant,...and along with so much more, while alpaca fiber can be dyed, alpacas naturally come in over 22 colors - such fashionable animals! Also, alpacas are happy animals and good friends to the earth - they are used only for their fiber (sheared once a year) and can live up to 25 years! They're basically easy-going animals and are good to the earth in many ways, including through their unique grazing habits and softly padded feet which help combat erosion, protect water supplies..they "mow" rather than trample their pastures!
So if you have loved alpaca for years or if you don't even know what an alpaca is, but are curious to find out, please come visit our store and learn more, or share your alpaca stories - we'd love to hear them!
