Off the Beaten Path: Dakota Ridge Farm

Off the Beaten Path

BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Located just south of Saratoga Springs in Ballston Spa, Dakota Ridge Farm is situated on 42 acres of creekside woods, ponds, and pastures. They offer farm tours, llama treks, animal-assisted therapy (including special needs groups), educational visits, as well as llama sales, and rescue and rehoming of llamas.

It all began in 1990, when Gary Capasso bought Katrina a llama named Dakota as a wedding present. From one llama to now, more than 60 llamas. And just this week, the couple welcomed two more llamas—babies.

Dakota Ridge Farm recently returned from the 2021 New York State Fair Llama Show where they won many accolades.
