Arella Farm

Just outside the hustle and bustle of the city sits an alpaca farm waiting for you to take time out and play. Spend an afternoon with us and relax to the peaceful hum of our friendly alpacas.

We cordially invite you to come out and explore the alpaca farm lifestyle and experience for yourself what it takes to raise alpacas.

Select the "Store" tab to learn more about exclusive tours led by one of our farm hands, birthday parties, field trips, and special events.

EXPLORE, LEARN, AND PLAY


We are a small alpaca farm in Lamar, MS with a big heart for animals. We first fell in love with alpacas while vacationing in Little Rock, AR during a visit to Heifer Village. We were actually expecting to see cows there but were surprised to see alpacas instead! It was love at first site. We sold our home in Olive Branch, MS, bought some land in Benton County, and Arella Farm was born. We started our alpaca farm with one potbellied pig, who moved with us from Olive Branch and four Huacaya alpacas. Over the past few couple of years, we've added to the foundation herd to include more Huacayas as well as Suri alpacas. The pig pen has grown as well. We are now home to three pot-bellied pigs and two kune-kune pigs!
We opened our doors to the public in order to share our love of these wonderful animals and provide and educational experience for our guests.



We're off to a great start this year with plenty of events planned. I know you want to go ahead and mark your calendars now so you don't miss out on any of the fun, so here are the first few events:

February 15th: NEEDLE FELTING FOR BEGINNERS: This is such a fun class. You'll learn to needle felt a gnome out of alpaca and sheep wool (some alpaca fiber from animals on our farm.)

April 4th: Our first ever EASTER EGG HUNT: We're really excited about this one. This will be an "egg swap" event in which children will hunt for empty eggs and exchange them for a treat bag. We'll have age appropriate areas set up for the children to hunt in. There JUST MIGHT be a large bunny hanging out, too! Wink wink

May 16th-PRINCESS MAKE OVER AND ALPACA TEA PARTY: Put on your best princess attire! Your little one is invited to tea! Upon arrival, she will be treated to a princess make over by a licensed cosmetologist. Following the transformation, she will be seated for a formal tea party! Bring your cameras for this one!

Dates to Be Announced:

PAINT AN ALPACA: You don't want to miss this one! This will be a very unique spin on "paint-a-piece type classes. Artist Evan Farmer will be teaching this class using spray paint! I can't wait to post an example pic. It's amazing to see what beautiful works can come out of this style of painting.

SHEARING DAY: Curious about how they are shorn every year? Join us for the once a year shearing day. Feel free to help out or just observe.

ALPACALYPSE: All things alpaca all day long! Fiber demonstrations, Alpaca 101 seminars, learn about South America (where alpacas come from), Games, Food, Family Fun!
