Our small herd has now grown to 25. We have diversified our genetics through the acquisition of several notable full Peruvian herdsires during the past two years: Classic Black Night (true black), Regalo Gold of Genesis (dark fawn), and Chilipepper’s Nevada (white). These boys, have given us a lot of breeding options.

We have crossed alpacas of Peruvian ancestry with Chileans to produce excellent fleece in a diverse array of colors. We are breeding for conformation, superior quality fleece and disposition. Our animals are all handled on a daily basis. They are friendly and fun. If you are interested in buying alpacas, please see our sales list for more information.

All our alpacas are registered with the Alpaca Registry.
