ABOUT US & OUR FARM:
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 now keep a herd of 12 to 20 alpacas, an alpaca farm shop, and offer agritourism opportunities.
Our herd has evolved to include some fiber animals which we will sell to good homes as pets and fiber producers, foundation girls with proven birthing histories, and elite alpacas who are proving themselves in the show ring. We usually have 12-20 alpacas on the farm. We treat every alpaca 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 that bring out the best in the alpacas

0% Interest for 1 - 2 years for breeding females and packages. Specific terms negotiable.
