Our Story

A Little Bit About US: My name is Lady. I’m a chocolate Lab and the cutest of all the animals here (at least I think so.) I remember the day my dad, Charles, told me my mother, Susan, wanted to raise alpacas. I thought to myself, what for? I’m all you need around here! A few short days later we were driving in the car and I heard my mom say, "Stop, there are some alpacas!" That was how I first learned about alpacas. I can't say I was immediately swayed to take on this lifestyle. They were cute and cuddly, but I didn't really see any need to share my farm lifestyle. Five years later, my mother, father and I have 44 alpacas who make their home at our farm. They are a delight to see each day. They have provided us with many days of entertainment pronking around the pastures. On most days they can be seen quietly grazing in our pastures. We have a 20 acre farm located in Upper Marlboro, MD. We always enjoy sharing our peaceful farm with the many visitors who visit us each year. I love to jump on people and have been told I can be annoying, but if you come visit us, I will probably be the first one you will see. One final thought that I have heard my parents say, "It's never too late to live happily ever after!" We have a farm store stocked with beautiful products made from alpaca fiber. Some of our products include: clothing, hats, scarves, socks, sweaters, alpaca toys, alpaca children's books, yarn and many more items. We accept cash and credit cards. We hope you will be able to visit our farm and enjoy some quality family fun.

Visited recently with 7 kids and 3 adults. The kids were thrilled to be able to feed some of the beautiful alpacas, and Sue couldn't have been more gracious and informative. We all had a great time!
Anne finished making my new hat. The yarn came from an alpaca named Thunder. Not often that you meet the critter you got the yarn from.
so happy to run across your farm as we went wandering in Brandywine today. Loved the tour, feeding the alpacas, and petting the one that seemed quite happy to hold still for it. We are plotting a visit back with the grandkids! Love the shop too. Can't wait to wear my socks!
We visited yesterday and got to meet the alpacas. I then got a skein of yarn from Thunder that my wife will make into a hat. It is not often you get to meet the critter that your hat came from.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving with some funny alpacas from Alpaca Lane Criations!
;-)
Shearing time! :) Thank you for allowing me to volunteer and for your kind welcome!
My 90 year old mother, Mary Lou, and I had a lovely few hours volunteering and watching. Thank you so much for welcoming us and allowing me to volunteer. And special thanks for your kindness to my Mom! She wants to come back to watch/volunteer sometime. She felt a real peace on the property, felt a connection to the alpacas, and felt so welcome. It was an amazing outing for me and Mom! A very special experience neither one of us will forget! You really made an old woman happy today! And you make this daughter so very thankful for your kindness and inclusion. With gratitude - Annie

Have you sheared yet? If not, do you have a date picked out? Would love to see if we are available that day!
Hey Sue, when are you shaving everyone down this spring?
Very impressive and beautiful farm! Both Susan and Charles are warm/welcoming. Looking forward to coming back!
