Bookings are required to visit.
Mt. Hoppe Farm is a place where farm animals and people are welcome just as they are. Our definition of success is as unique as each personality living on the farm. Winning is not wealth and power. Winning is light shining from the eyes around us.
Yes, we rescue and provide forever homes for farm animals living in difficult or uncertain circumstances. These same animals provide a connection, a look, a moment in time when a human feels they are exactly where they belong. This is a moment not to be forgotten; to be accepted and appreciated so completely.
You are invited to our home to experience the inspiration, love, and nurturing animals naturally provide to humans and one another. Mt. Hoppe Farm sits on 14 acres of the TX Hill Country. It if from here that we are honored to provide a place where people and animals know they belong.

Alpaca fiber has made it to the top of the A-List with fashion and sport apparel designers. Alpaca yarn is more luxurious, softer, lighter, and warmer than cashmere, thanks to the longer fibers. Alpaca also pills less than cashmere and is hypoallergenic—not to mention more scarce.
Alpaca fiber is hollow, like a tiny straw. Because of this it retains heat by trapping warm air to keep you warm in even the coldest weather. These air pockets are what makes alpaca fiber super breathable, which is appreciated when worn in warmer temperatures. Alpaca fibers measure just 1/3rd of the weight of wool, Light, soft, durable, versatile, and beautiful are what make alpaca fiber ideal for knit and woven items,
Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic. It does not contain lanolin, the oil in sheep wool that tends to make some people itchy. Alpaca fibers are naturally waterproof which is why alpacas do not need to produce lanolin oil at all. Items made from alpaca fiber are water and stain resistant.
Mt. Hoppe Farm uses animal-friendly handling and shearing techniques. Our pack o' pacas is shorn every spring. An adult alpaca can produce more than 15 pounds of fiber of which 6-7 pounds can be top tier-quality. The remaining fiber is graded second and third quality tier, All of the fiber gets used, for example the top tier fiber is spun into yarn and lower tier fiber is used for rugs.
Alpacas come in 16 distinct natural colors world wide and have more than 200 unique color tones. Traditional colors range from ivory white to fawn, deep browns, and blacks as well as swirling caramel.
The best reason to love alpacas is that they are always smiling.
Chipper is a unique guy; 16 year old full jack, loves carrots and is super friendly. Before residing at Mt. Hoppe, Chipper was living alone in a field - not so great for a social guy. He also lacked basic care like hoof trimming. Now he has more friends than he can count. Can he be friends with you?
Terra, Leia, Dewie, Summer, and Val moved to Mt. Hoppe when their parents were divesting of their alpaca herd. Summer and Val were 18/19 years old and needed a place to live out their lives with a family that would embrace their last bit of time in this earth suit. Terra and Leia are 2 years old now and Dewie is 3 years old.
Seamus and his brother, Guinness, moved to Mt. Hoppe Farm when their family had to move out of state. Guinness and Seamus are super sweet and friendly mini-horses.
Born on Christmas Day and Intended to be hamburger, Chris' path led to Mt. Hoppe Farm instead. He's a curious little steer still getting used to the place. He has the sweetest big brown eyes and face.
