The inland Waldo County town of Unity is unlike any other town in Maine – rural with a twist of diversity. There is something for every taste and pocketbook from hiking trails to wine tastings at Younity Winery to world class performances at the Center for Performing Arts, The Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm, the Common Ground Fair and auto racing. America’s foremost environmental-studies college is in Unity. There is an Amish community, an active farmer’s market, and a rail depot.

Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm: Located at 141 Crosby Brook Road, it’s open Wednesday – Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Owners Robin and Corry Pratt offer Alpacas for sale and boarding, farm tours, seminars & Alpaca fiber and apparel at the retail store in Unity. Alpacas are amazing creatures, sweet dispositions, incredibly soft, versatile fiber, curious and a joy to work with and be around say the couple. Robin Pratt has been working with alpacas for 12 years and is still excited to be working with them. The Pratts love sharing their alpacas with visitors and provide educational support and resources with other owners.
