Abstract:
A Charlotte couple traded an urban life for rural life in buying a farm, with the expected part of their pastoral plan involving animals like llamas and horses. The unexpected member of their animal menagerie was alpacas. This in turn yielded an unexpected result for their dream home: it became Good Karma Ranch. What the couple calls an “adult camp” currently specializes in agritourism, products made from alpaca fur, and BYOB gatherings. The expanded version of “adult camp” at Good Karma Ranch will soon include yoga and wine and paint nights.
