So...people always ask us "why alpacas?" The truth is that we considered all kinds of livestock -- many with a much more obvious and conventional business operation and revenue stream. But -- we wanted MORE -- we wanted something we could interact with every day. We wanted something that would bring joy and passion.
In 2011, we started a journey of researching alpacas to see if a viable business plan could be made. We visited dozens of farms and found that lots of them were thriving. And we found alpaca people to be from all walks of life, and warm and welcoming. We fell in love with the alpacas, and the people with alpacas.
Whether you're looking for your starter herd or wanting to add to your existing herd, Mark and Brenda are committed to helping you choose alpacas to meet your goals and objectives -- be it for pet, fiber, or show -- and to support you in your own alpaca journey.
