With over 30 years of animal breeding experience, we strive to produce sound animals that are available in a wide range of colors and quality to match your needs. We have worked hard over the past years to continually elevate the quality of our herd. Animal breeders know that animals should only be bred if it will improve the next generation, a philosophy we breed by. We carefully evaluate each and every breeding to ensure the best possible outcome. There is no greater pride for us than seeing an animal we have planned and raised meet and exceed our expectations.

We began our alpaca ownership back 2001 when we purchase a male to keep our orphaned deer company. Well that didn't work as planned (they didn't like each other!) so we expanded to a trio. Two pregnant females and the male. Our plan was to provide a "fiber quality" animal and to take our tiny herd and create our living investment, one generation at a time. When I think about those first animals, I remember being frustrated at how course their fleeces were within a few years of age. We made maintaining fiber softness a priority. We invested in some new stock that exemplified (at the time) fineness over the years. Our fiber analysis record shows without a doubt that we have accomplished our goal and then some. Our animals consistently hold a finer fleece well into their adult years and are above the national averages.

So now what is our breeding goal? Fineness still continues to be our number one priority for fleece traits. We use fiber testing and a critical review of the quality of goods we can produce from our animals to help us drive our breeding decisions. We sell products made from our own animals and have helped clients to enjoy the many benefits of owning these amazing animals.

As we are coming full circle in our journey we are now enjoying using our animals more and more as Paca ambassadors. We really enjoy sharing these unique animals with the public and really enjoy the joy on people's faces as they interact an alpaca for the first time. From vending events and special events at local businesses to birthdays and weddings, we hope to be available for more public interactions. Almost all future babies will be available for sale so if your looking for youngsters, check our females for what's coming!
