Dakota Ridge Farm

Dakota Ridge Farm was established in 1990 when we obtained our first llama, Dakota, as a wedding present from Gary to Katrina. Since then, many more of these regal, magical and mystical creatures have arrived. Located in beautiful upstate New York, just south of Saratoga Springs, Dakota Ridge Farm is situated on 42 acres of woods, creek side, ponds and pastures. We offer farm tours, llama treks, pet therapy (including special needs groups), educational visits, as well as llama sales, rescue and re-homing of llamas. Our farm has had visitors from as far away as China, Japan, Australia, and all parts of the U.S.
