Sugg Plantation & Alpaca Farm
Welcome to Sugg Plantation & Alpaca Farm
Both Warren and Amy come from many generations of farming.
Warren grew up in Eastern NC, and worked on his family farm growing tobacco, cotton, soy beans, watermelon, and other crops. Amy grew up in the mountains of Western NC, and her family has farmed tobacco, black angus cattle, and Fraser fir Christmas trees.
Warren and Amy met at church in Raleigh, NC and married in 2005. They lived in Fuquay-Varina (just outside Raleigh) for several years. As their children grew, so did their dream of having their very own farm. Living close to a large city had its perks, but in 2014, the mountains began to call Amy home. After praying for direction, they were given an opportunity to move back to the farm to continue the family legacy and making their dream a reality.
When they’re not tending to all the animals around the farm, Warren works as a civil engineer in Asheville and Amy is a real estate broker with Re/Max Executive in Waynesville. They both enjoy serving in their community and their church.
"It's sort of in your blood. You don't think about the long hours or the money. You do it because you love it.”
Sugg Plantation and Alpaca Farm is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, near Maggie Valley, NC. Around the farm, you'll find alpacas, black angus cattle, chickens, ducks, a ram, goat, donkey, two great pyrenees, and a few cats.
Family farming is more important now than ever before. The Sugg sisters learn about farming first hand by helping care for the animals, along with selling delicious hormone-free farm fresh eggs. They also experience management of the farm, and watch alpaca fiber go from animal to finished product.
To be faithful and good stewards of the land and resources that God has provided.
"The animals are beautiful & the people could not be nicer. They go out of their way just because that is how they are. The children were trilled!"
"Fun with family and the alpaca farm. The owners were very courteous and informative about living with these great farm animals. I hope to feed the males next time I go."
"Today my granddaughter and her friend had a great experience at the Alpaca Farm. Amy and Warren made us all feel very welcome.. the children enjoyed hearing about all the animals. Feeding them was my favorite. We look forward to maybe having a group of kids out from Shining Rock to visit. Thank you again for a entertaining and fun Sunday afternoon."
