SHEPHERD'S CREEK ALPACAS HAS RETURNED TO IT'S ORIGINAL HOME IN CENTRAL NEW YORK STATE! We are now just outside the village of Trumansburg, 10 miles from Ithaca, NY, and just 30 minutes from the original alpaca farm we set up in 2003. We continue to raise and breed quality alpacas in the beautiful Finger Lakes region.
People ALWAYS ask us…"How did you ever get into this??". An educator (Barb) and a physician (Marc), we stumbled on these delightful animals in 2003, fell in love, and began a life journey that was both unforeseen and wonderful! We started small with Barb working ½ time and taking care of the alpacas, and now keep a herd of 15 to 20 alpacas, an alpaca farm store, and Barb is full time on the farm.
Our herd has evolved to include some fiber animals which we will sell to good homes as pets and fiber producers, solid foundation girls with proven birthing histories, and a growing number of elite alpacas who are proving themselves in the show ring each year. On a given day we might have up to 25 alpacas on the farm, including girls here for breeding and a few who are boarding. We treat each and every alpaca on the farm with individual attention and care, which we believe is the reason our health and birthing history is excellent. We feed and clean twice a day, interacting with our animals using trust-building husbandry techniques. People are forever surprised when the alpacas come running when they see us. All of the youngsters are halter trained and most of them will come up for a sniff or a kiss.
We believe that the alpaca industry is flourishing, and that the price of mid-range animals has adjusted reasonably in the last few years. The high-end breeding stock maintains its value, and demand is still strong.
