We will have candy floss, face painting, you can get photos with the alpacas and have the chance to get some great outdoor fresh air!
**Please leave your dogs at home** We stress this because our alpacas are afraid of dogs. Even your little chihuahua. We ask that you respect our farm and our request. Service dogs are the ONLY exception.

The Farm Store
Please email or message us on social media to book your appointment today.
We love to bring guests into our farm store because it is full of the most amazing alpaca fiber items you can get your hands on.
Most of our store items are shipped in from Peru, but we do source socks from Canada with home grown fiber.
Ruby's Acres Honey Bees
In July 2023 we ventured into honey bees with the help of some wonderful friends and mentors.
We started off with 2 large hives and split to make 4 hives. Then we caught a swarm at another farm to make 5 hives! We were able to harvest 36lbs of honey this year from one hive. The others are growing for the 2024 season.
The flavor of our honey predominantly comes from white clover which covers all our alpaca paddocks and lawn. You will often see bees working hard around our farm collecting for their hive. In coming years we will have dogwood trees, lavender and many more flowers to feed the bees.
During our tours, we do not go near the hives as they are at the back of our paddocks. But you may see them during your tour while they work. Please do not be afraid of them as bees are gentle and will not sting unless provoked (usually when we go into their hive!). Please bring your medication if you have allergies, just to be safe!
