Llama, Alpaca, Goat Farm Walk/Hike Followed by Visiting 2 Local Wineries, Breweries or Distilleries

Meet some of the most personable and charismatic llamas, alpacas and goats in The Hudson Valley. This unique outdoor adventure is gaining in popularity and has been quoted as “The Best Day Ever" by many visitors. Your visit will begin with a brief tour of the farm and introductions to some of the smaller friends (i.e. goats, sheep, dogs and overly friendly barn cats) with a short story of the 1850 homestead. The Historic Hudson Valley farm is on 25 acres and is a definite must visit. 

Your Guide will assign you a llama, alpaca or goat on a hike through gentle pastures and wooded areas while encouraging llama, alpaca and goat selfies along the way. The hike/walk is 1 mile round trip on groomed and maintained trails. You'll have time at the end to stop by the Farm Store and find some special farm items and mementos. Closed toe shoes/sneakers is required. 

*depending on availability, it may be necessary to "share" a llama/alpaca/goat with another person you traveled with. This activity books out early. So, making your plans far in advance (such as 1 month prior for weekends) is highly encouraged.

*depending on availability, a different local comparable llama/alpaca farm than what is featured may need to be used.

Winery/Brewery/Distillery Options (Dutchess and/or Ulster Counties): Milea Estate Vineyard!

The Milea Estate Winery is one of our very favorites! Relax and enjoy the view of the vineyards from the hilltop tasting room or the sun porch. Savor their artisan wines by the glass, bottle, or of course, a curated tasting flight. For those with a palate for something different, this winery also offers cocktails made with award-winning 10 Point Gin, local beers, and in very limited quantities, the estate-grown artisan dry cider (as well as non-alcoholic options). Fun Fact; this Estate has been featured many times on the Hulu show "Life and Beth" by Amy Schumer. You'll also love Chef David's food menu!
