Welcome to Grist Mill Farm

The idea for Grist Mill Farm Alpacas was actually conceived in 2002 when we had our first encounter with alpacas while at a polo match. We were attracted to them because they were cute, gentle, curious and calm. Although we often talked about them, we didn’t get really serious until we bought our 35 acre property in the beautiful rolling hills of northern Chester County Pennsylvania.

The property we bought was home to a dilapidated and crumbling grist mill dating to the early 1800s, along with a collapsed stone barn and an overgrown pasture. We built our house using all of the original stone and closely duplicated the original structure. We also added a small barn in anticipation of raising alpacas.
