Sweet Blossom Alpaca Farm

37543 Pappy Road | Dade City

(813) 335-7387

Sweet Blossom Alpacas is now located in Dade City, FL where we have much more nice pasture space for our alpacas. Our 15 acre farm is just north of Tampa and Orlando and conveniently minutes off of I-75.

We followed the same path that many alpaca owners probably took by visiting local alpaca farms, learning as much as we could without being full fledged alpaca owners before we decided to jump into this amazing alpaca world. We love taking care of and working with the alpacas, and the never ending learning experience as well as networking with other alpaca farms.

We are dedicated to continuously improving the genetics of our herd via a well thought out breeding program. To learn more about alpacas and see our wonderful "blossoms", please give us a call to schedule a time to come by. We'd love to share any information about alpacas with you, what we've learned throughout our journey into the alpaca world, and answer any questions you might have.
