The Alpaca hobby farm in Traverse City, owned by Bob and Becky Sanford, is open by appointment for personalized visits. They say, “Alpacas are curious, gentle, quiet and often humorous to watch. We love taking care of them and are grateful to have the opportunity and responsibility to increase their health, fiber and happiness.”
