Apple Hill Farm Press Kit
Visit our unique mountaintop alpaca farm and store, and connect to what matters – yourself, your family, a real farm experience. Get up close and personal with the alpacas, donkeys, goats and other animals that work and play at Apple Hill Farm. Every animal has a specific job, and many have a story as well! Apple Hill Farm is also home to the largest selection of alpaca products in the High Country of North Carolina.
Located just outside Banner Elk and perched on top of Valle Mountain, Apple Hill Farm is fun for the whole family! Magnificent mountain views, wooded footpaths, and landscaped gardens provide the ultimate picturesque setting for the alpacas, goats, donkeys, chickens, dogs, horses, and other animals that call Apple Hill Farm home. Guided walking tours of the farm are offered year round. On these tours, guests get up close and personal with the animals that work and play at Apple Hill Farm. Every animal has a specific job, and many have a story as well!
In addition to farm animals, Apple Hill Farm is also home to the largest selection of alpaca products in the High Country of North Carolina. They have over 20 varieties of alpaca yarn as well as gloves, scarves, socks, sweaters, vests, jackets, hats, stuffed animals and more – all created from luxurious alpaca fiber!
