Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm, LLC, established in 2004, is located in beautiful Unity, Maine. With a group of friends and volunteers, we built our 30′ x 50′ barn. We have since added two additional small barns and a retail clothing store. Today we operate 3 retail locations with the banner “Maine Alpaca Experience” located in Downtown Ellsworth Maine, Northport Maine and at our farm.
In August, 2006, we purchased our first 3 alpacas and our business was on its way. At present, we are home to 33 healthy alpacas and expecting 8 adorable cria (baby alpacas) this birthing season.
Our farm is impeccably clean and we operate in a socially and environmentally friendly manner. The well-being of our animals is our priority. We are particularly conscious of bio-security measures and take all precautions to safeguard our alpacas.
Northern Solstice is a well respected alpaca breeding facility offering a full service farm, including boarding, breeding, alpaca sales, a retail gift gallery, owner/breeder mentoring and opportunities for our visitors to have hands on learning. We own show-quality champion alpacas, breeding and fiber quality alpacas. Our breeding philosophy begins with selecting animals whose lineage and characteristics are outstanding. We are committed to pairing animals for continuous genetic improvement. We utilize the most up-to-date practices and resources available. We founded the Alpaca Center of New England in 2009; an organization providing educational opportunities for all alpaca owners and anyone interested in learning more.
We have an incredible passion for these amazing creatures. We love sharing them with our community and beyond. Mentoring new owners is a labor of joy for us. We pride ourselves on our open approach and clear communication of all the details of raising alpacas. We fully share our knowledge and want to encourage and help others have a seamless transition into alpaca farming. We invite you to call or visit Northern Solstice soon!
