Lavender Hill Farm, owned by Kevin and Paulette Batchek, is surrounded by the beautiful Pachaug State Forest in the rural town of Voluntown, Connecticut. We started the farm in 2006 with three Huacaya alpacas. Now our farm has grown to 19 alpacas! We strive for quality in our alpacas' conformation and fleece characteristics. Keeping our alpacas' health and well-being our top priority, we are rewarded with a healthy herd of alpacas with superior fiber.

Shearing Day 2020
Shearing day on an alpaca farm happens just once a year and this year it's Saturday, May 9th! This is the most important day on the farm where we harvest all the fiber the alpacas grew for the past year. They will be more comfortable for warmer weather that's on the way and we'll have plenty of fiber to turn into yarn or roving! If you'd like to see what the alpacas look like before and after and watch how shearing is done, then stop by the farm!
We will be very busy while shearing is taking place therefore the shop will not be open on this day, but we will be open 10 - 4 Sunday and Monday.
Shearing Day Saturday, May 9th 9:00 - 12:00 pm Gift Shop - CLOSED
