Our Vision

We know good relationships are built on trust and whether you are buying our outstanding alpacas, or buying products we produce with their fiber, your total satisfaction is our goal. When you have a great experience with our animals or products you will refer others and we will have the opportunity to assist them in experiencing the lifestyle that is the alpaca.

Alpaca Breeders

We offer premier breeding stock with outstanding pedigrees that will help you establish or strengthen your alpaca herd. We also offer complete pre and post-purchase sup-port of new alpaca breeders when they pur-chase animals from us, including advice on physical layout, finding veterinary care, nutrition, and animal care.

Fiber Products

We are constantly seeking ways to broaden the awareness of and the market for alpaca fiber. We feel we can do this most effectively through our own efforts. We use all the fiber produced by our animals on our farm for the production of hand-crafted, and inspired wearable art for the discerning consumer.

It was fun to get out to experience the falling snow and, for Janetta, to be completely warm in the alpaca garments. We are very blessed to have Melinda’s great design skills creating wonderful garments from our fiber. Here Janetta is wearing one of Melinda’s latest designs, a poncho in mixed natural alpaca colors. This is a very busy time of the year for us, as we have… Continue Reading
