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.

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.
