About Us

The Upper Farm is set on 125 rugged acres in the rural community of Pownal, Maine. We tend to a herd of 30 alpacas, have a forestry operation offering retail specialty lumber, custom sawmill services, and handcrafted woodworking, and are developing lines of berry crops. Browse our site to learn more about us and our farm, and meet our alpacas at upperfarmalpacas.com.

We are the ultimate do-it-yourselvers. We began our homestead in 1999, with the purchase of a vacant 1828 early Greek Revival cape cod farmhouse in Newcastle. We had it disassembled and moved it 50 miles to our land in Pownal, using an equipment trailer, a couple of pick-ups, in about 30 trips. We reconstructed it and have been slowly renovating it ever since.


We brought our first alpacas home in August, 2005--three fiber boys whose job it was to teach us all about them. We quickly took the leap into breeding and five females and a herdsire later, we began the first phase of our farm business.

Today we have thirty beautiful alpacas, offer a variety of farm consulting/tractor services, forestry and wood products services and goods, and are expanding to grow specialty berry crops. Fruit and fiber, if you will. 

We invite you to visit our farm to learn more about fiber farming in Maine. We are currently open by appointment, and we're always ready to talk 'paca, whether you are looking for fiber boys or breeding stock. All our animals are personable, easy to handle, healthy, and produce quality fiber for a variety of uses.
