The alpacas were very friendly, and you get to go in the pens to meet them. The owner was extremely knowledgeable and obviously loves his flock. The store has very reasonably priced items. We had a fun visit.

We learned a lot about alpacas during our visit with Bill, his wife, and meeting the alpacas. Both Bill and his wife were extremely welcoming and we got to feed the alpacas. A wonderful trip for my daughter who loves animals. A must see.

Bill gave us a wonderfully educational tour of his farm. He obviously is very passionate about his Alpaca friends, and is full fascinating information. Absolutely worth the short (and scenic) drive from Albuquerque.

We went to Hollywick Farms to see alpacas, and they took us into the pens to see them up close! My wife got great pictures and everyone was super friendly and informative! This would be a worthwhile stop on any vacation.
