Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm began as a dream of one day owning alpacas to becoming our present day operation as a well-established, quickly and easily recognized alpaca breeder, education center and retail operation.
We take exceptional care of our alpacas and provide an impeccable environment for them in our modern facility. Our cleanliness is unsurpassed and bio-security efforts and personal, hands-on care are exemplary. Our breeding program includes some of the most prestigious alpaca bloodlines in the industry. Our sales list represents incredible possibilities - from breeders to companions; all colors of the spectrum; male or female; bred or not. We offer competitive prices and excellent financing terms. We work with clients to formulate alpaca packages based on their goals, including our innovative ‘Buy and Board’ program. The after-sale support we deliver is unmatched. We mentor and coach to the degree the client desires and will continue providing a service partnership that will meet the highest expectation.
Our retail endeavor offers our farm store, our on-line store, and has expanded to opening 2 additional retail locations; The Maine Alpaca Experience on Route 1 in Northport, and downtown Main Street, Ellsworth, Maine. This greatly expands our presence and allows us to bring the value of alpaca fiber to the public. The Northport location features an ‘Experience Center’, visually outlining the history of the alpaca, showcasing the fiber industry with working demonstrations and participatory exercises with fiber arts such as spinning, knitting, felting, and carding. The Ellsworth location offers a complete retail line and a yarn shop complete with free spinning and knitting lessons and a knitters gallery.
Education remains a top priority for us. We offer a vast array of seminars for alpaca enthusiasts of all levels. Whether you have a farm or are deciding if you should raise alpacas, we can offer you information that will help. See our website for more details.

Farm Terms & Financing
Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm offers you flexible and competitive financing on the purchase of our alpacas for qualified buyers. We develop a financing arrangement that meets both parties needs. In most situations, we offer up to 4 years financing with 25% down and 0% interest for the first year. The alpacas will stay on our farm until the 25% down payment is made and we are provided with proof of insurance. Buyer is responsible for mortality insurance for the amount financed.
The registration of the alpacas and crias will remain in our name until the purchase price is paid in full. If your alpacas are boarded here at Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm, they will continue to receive the same outstanding health care until you are ready for delivery. Boarding will be at a rate of $5.00 per day.
