Our Story

Hi! We are David and Christine Rogers, The Good Shepherd and Shepherdess here at Rocking Chair Farm.

We are a family owned alpaca farm nestled at the base of House Mountain in East TN.

Our love affair with alpacas started in 2013 and our farm was established in 2014.  Since that time, our “critters” have firmly established themselves not only in our hearts, but also our souls.

We are currently home to a growing herd of huacuya and suri alpacas, as well as Mason the Wonder Dog , and Casey and Colby , our team of Livestock Guardian Dogs

What makes us different from the rest? We are devoted to raising the finest quality alpacas and furthering the breed, but we firmly believe in the magic these “critters” bring to a farm.  We love to educate our friends and neighbors about what makes these guys so magical; from the fiber they possess to their personalities.

 Just minutes away from the Smokies, downtown Knoxville, and many local attractions.  We offer interactive farm tours, educational events and workshops.  Shop for unique gifts in our farm store, or experience a day in the life of an alpaca farmer,led by the farmers themselves! Come check us out, stay a while and learn more about our story and the story of each animal here.  See if you don’t fall in love, too!

    We had a great time at Rocking Chair Farm this afternoon- fun and informative. Both kids and adults loved interacting with the animals.
    Thanks so much.
