Alpaca farms can be a great place to spend an afternoon. The Island Alpaca Company has over 50 alpaca and is a nice break from the beaches or shops in Edgartown, Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven.
The farm offers a walking tour, a store with hats, gloves, mittens, slippers, scarves, jackets, socks, coats, alpaca yarn, a full line of Louet spinning wheels, and knitting and spinning classes.
The colors of the alpaca are truly impressive, ranging from white to tan to midnight black.

The farm is located at:
1 Head of the Pond Road, Oak Bluffs
This is about halfway between Vineyard Haven and Edgartown. More detailed directions and hours can be viewed on their site.
These animals are truly impressive and our kids had a great time at this farm. It's well worth a few hours during your Martha's Vineyard vacation.
