Our Alpacas

We have a growing herd of Suri Alpacas from top quality champion bloodlines. We breed quality coloured Suri's with friendly temperaments and beautiful fleeces.  Alpacas have to be sheared for their welfare, we do this once a year and then use the fleece to make lovely products, happy in the knowledge that our alpacas are still enjoying the grass in the fields.  Our alpacas are nurtured with love and care from the moment they set foot on our farm. Their welfare is of utmost important to us. 

This is the perfect place to visit to enjoy nature, relax and get to know more about alpaca's in a quiet and peaceful setting.
