ALPACA AND MINI FARM ANIMAL TOURS IN WESTERN NC

Winchester Creek Farm in Waynesville, NC is a family-owned, 20-acre farm with rolling green pastures surrounded by the majestic Smoky Mountains. We raise adorable alpacas and a variety of miniature farm animals — horses, cows, donkeys, goats, sheep, and pigs.

Educational tours are 45-minutes where you’ll have the opportunity to walk the farm and learn about and meet some of our animals who make up our Farmily.

  • Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the start of your tour. If you are late for your tour, you will have to join the tour group mid-tour.
  • For the safety of the animals, we do not allow any helium balloons, tobacco products, vaping, chewing gum, outside treats, or any other animals on the property. Please leave pets safely at home. Outside food and beverages are allowed in the pavilion for booked private birthday parties and celebrations. Picnics before or after farm tours are permitted in the picnic area outside of Granny’s House.
  • We go out on tours rain or shine, and only cancel during inclement weather (lighting storms, major snow, or ice storms) and we do not give refunds for any reason. If you need to cancel or reschedule the activity, you must call 828-246-9486 or email us  sales@winchestercreekfarm.com at least 24 hours in advance and provide the available date and time that you would like to reschedule to.
