The Buzzard Farm
About The Buzzard Farm
The Buzzard Farm is a small farm located in Western Pennsylvania, about an hour from Pittsburgh. We currently have five alpaca, eight ducks and a nice variety of chickens. We have lots of gardens and to feed both our animals and ourselves. We are both a working farm and a homestead. Currently, we are not open to the public, however, we will be doing private alpaca visits and alpaca meet and greet rentals coming in spring 2023.
Meet the Boys
Carlos arrived at our farm in the fall of 2020 along with three other boys. He was one of our first alpaca. He loves broccoli leaves and sniffing the tops of people's heads. He is one of our two herd leaders and keeps an eye on everything at the farm.
Walter is our super shy and sweet boy. He has the longest eyelashes of any alpaca we have ever seen! Walter has lived at The Buzzard Farm for two years. He also arrived in the fall of 2020. He loves dust bathing, rolling in tall grasses, and spending some time by himself by his favorite maple tree. Walter is an introvert at the core.
Outlaw is one of our youngest alpaca. He was born in the spring of 2021 and arrived on our farm in December of 2021. He was born in eastern Pennsylvania. He is very unsure of new people and takes more time to trust than the other boys. With his dark eyes and smushed in nose, he is sight to see.
Mack is the friendliest of all of our alpaca. Mack was also born in the spring of 2021and arrived at The Buzzard Farm in December of the same year. He is the only alpaca that tolerates an occasional pet and loves to eat treats from your hands. He comes running anytime we have visitors and he is a such joy.
Chauncey arrived at on our farm in the fall of 2020 and immediately left an impression on us. He has an opinion on basically every thing we do involving him or not and he will occasionally spit to show it. He loves being sprayed with the hose and hanging out with his best friend Carlos.
