We have alapcas for sale as pets, for fiber or for breeding stock.
We have also started a "Trial Placement Program". If you have a shelter, fenced in pasture and a love of animals but are not sure alpacas are the ones, for a fee we will place 2-4 alpacas with you and provide all the information you need to be successful. If you decide alpacas are not for you, we will take them back. If you decide you'd like to get into the fiber or breeding, we'll deduct to cost of the trial from the purchase price of fiber/ breeding animals.
Complimentary (We're always happy to talk alpacas and farming.)
We have experience with treating basic medical issues and will know when to call the vet, alpaca maintainence, rotational grazing, fiber quality and fiber processing.
