For us, thirty-five acres, multiple decades of hands-on raising and training of horses, along with a strong desire to create a profitable, working farm on a relatively small acreage, were the seeds that planted the idea of alpaca farming. Our program began in early 2002, at which time we attended the Alpaca Owners and Breeders National Conference, and soon after purchased our first breeding stock. We work our farm personally, full-time and day to day to assure the finest care for our animals.
Our focus, from the beginning, has been centered around the very best quality we can produce in both fleece and conformation. We have been highly selective with our foundation stock. Like many North Americans, we enjoy and appreciate color, but high quality always comes first. Clients will find a diversity of fleece colors in our alpacas, but will always be assured of quality animals and superior bloodlines.
A very important aspect of many alpaca breeding programs is the show ring. Here, breeders compete against one another as a basis of comparison of their breeding and purchasing choices and decisions. We have received affirmation of the success of our program and choices, evidenced by a good number of top placements at some of the most prestigious competitions in the nation.
