The Well-Mannered Alpacas of Bryan

June 05, 2017

In addition to its rich history and sublime Texas landscape, Bryan also has some downright quirky attractions. One of our favorites is the Royal Oaks Alpaca Farm, whose motto is “raising quality alpacas with manners.” Alpacas aren’t usually found roaming around North America, so you’ll be forgiven if you’ve not seen one in person, but they are genuinely sweet animals with luxurious fur and a penchant for goofy antics. Royal Oaks offers tours for a small fee, where you’ll learn more about these gentle creatures and may even be treated to a coveted alpaca kiss. You can visit the farm store, which sells alpaca yarn, raw fiber, and various handcrafted items made from the animals’ fur. The staff also provide instruction in simple fiber arts projects, making this farm the perfect day trip for artisans and animal lovers alike.
