It is impossible to look upon the face of an alpaca and not smile! At Apple Hill Farm, the smiles abound. Their mission is to share its beauty and animals with Banner Elk, which means you can meet all of their alpacas, cats, chickens, dogs, donkeys, goats, horses, ponies, llamas. and even mini donkeys! The farm itself is located on the site of a 45-year-old apple orchard atop Valle Mountain.
