“Don't miss the chance to visit Faraway Farm Alpacas. Everything there is very special . . . the animals, the store, the land, and the people. It's a little slice of paradise right in our own backyard!”
"Leda and Steve exemplify what is best in local agriculture—they run a championship operation and stay on top of current land use and environmental safeguards enhancing their farm. Their herd is gorgeous, the farm is spotlessly clean, and their enthusiasm and energy for their alpacas is boundless. Plus the products in the store are unique, local, and beautiful. Fantastic." —Patricia P.
"Wonderful place to visit . . . Faraway Farm is a magical place. I have visited twice … alpacas are fascinating animals with real personalities . . . one came up and put its head on my shoulder. On my second visit, the highlight was the two new babies that were just weeks old. Leda is gracious and so knowledgeable. You can tell the Alpacas love her.” —Anne M.
“Beautiful Alpacas . . . Lovely farm, the animals are a delight, and the alpaca gifts in the barn are beautiful. This is a great stop before Christmas for a special gift.” —K.G.
“My sister and I had so much fun at Faraway Farm. It was easily accessible by the Metro North train from Manhattan (such a scenic route as well) to Croton-Harmon, and then an Uber to the farm. It was an amazing experience to spend time with the alpacas and the Icelandic horses, and also a very therapeutic one . . . The merchandise at the store was exquisite as well. We can't wait to be back again in this lovely place.” —H.S.
