Alpaca Shack

Aplaca ImageWe’re suckers for furry critters, so we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to stop at the Alpaca Shack in North Bennington, Vermont.  Or, it could be that I just like saying “Alpaca Shack.”  Whatever the reason, this small, independently owned alpaca breeder, with its postage stamp sized retail store (an actual “shack”), is not something you’ll find in any guidebook.  But if you’re in the area, it’s a worthwhile stop.  The effusive owner is proud to introduce you to her extremely friendly animals, all of which know their names (meet baby Vaughana to the left).  In the process she will also tell you more than you ever wanted to know about almost everything, and a little something about alpacas, too.

Alpaca Advice: To see the beasties in their full, fuzzy, glory, try to visit in cooler months when they’re less likely to be shorn.
