This Metro Vancouver alpaca farm is too adorable for words

If your heart doesn’t melt when you step foot on this Metro Vancouver alpaca farm, you may be made of stone.

Indeed, these inquisitive, impossibly soft creatures are sure to bring a smile to almost anyone’s face. And not only are they cute, but there is also a huge herd of the loveable softies.

Located in Langley, the Kensington Prairie Farm is home to a giant flock of the fluffy herbivores. Of course, the farm is also home to a herd of registered Polled Hereford cattle and bees that produce artisanal honey; however, bees and cows don’t typically draw “alpaca crowds,” for obvious reasons.

The farm breeds, raises and shows Huacaya alpacas, and they also market and sell a variety of high-quality Canadian made and imported alpaca products. Visitors will find a range of items such as women’s, men’s, and children’s gloves, hats, scarves, jackets, pants, sweaters, and more. In addition, they offer a number of beautifully soft teddy bears, and even small stuffed alpaca figurines.

You can also buy alpaca fleece and yarn to make your own custom pieces. The products make nice gifts, but it is also fun just to see the alpacas in person.
