Alpacas Move to their New Homes

During December, we had a few of our youngest alpacas move to their new homes. They are settling in well, and their new families have sent pictures.

renee-alpacasOur fall crias, Zorro, Silver Myst and Chocolate Eclair have moved with their moms and the ‘heart of our farm’ Lystra (one of our first alpacas, and mother to Lord Tennyson and many other alpacas).  They are are settling in and enjoying exploring the farm and getting to know their new people.

Our spring crias, best buddies Hawkeye and Gandalf moved to join Gabriel and Joshua in their North Carolina home.  The younger boys were born after the older boys had moved, so they took a little while to get to know each other with a lot of sniffing and staring.  By the end of the day, all four boys and the goats were hanging out and sharing hay.

New Alpaca Crias

Silver Myst and Chocolate Eclair

Silver Myst and Chocolate Eclair

Our last two alpaca crias of the year have been born.

Our lovely Lady Clare gave birth to a beautiful little girl on October 20th.  Peaceful Heart’s Chocolate Eclair, “Lottie”, looks just like her sire Amaro Khan.  She spent a few days in the barn with mom to avoid our cold winds, but is now out in the front pasture with our other crias.

On Tuesday, Lottie was joined by our last cria of the year.  Gillian gave birth to a gorgeous light gray boy.  Peaceful Heart’s Silver Myst also looks just like his sire Andean Silver.

Alpaca Sales in September

Peaceful Heart's Lord Tennyson

Peaceful Heart’s Lord Tennyson

Thank you to all who came out and made our 2016 National Alpaca Farm Days a success.  We had a lot of visitors, and sold much of the farm equipment we had for sales.  We also sold quite a few alpacas, and are excited to see our alpacas moving on to such good farms.  We do have more male and female alpacas for sale, as we have our alpaca farm for sale and are working towards finding homes for all by the end of the year.  We also have some packages of alpacas for sale at further discounts, or can create the perfect alpaca package for you.

Andean SilverDuring September, we sold Rivanna Andean Silver to To His Glory Alpaca Farm.  He has given us several beautiful rosegray crias, and we know that Silver will be a great addition to their gray breeding program.

Elsa 2016Our sweet and friendly Elsa has also moved to her new home.  She will be joining her buddy Delightful Rain and the other alpacas of Firefly Farm.  They have created a lovely, all female, fiber herd in a range of beautiful colors.

merlin-grouchoGroucho Marx and Merlin have moved to join the female alpacas of YHVH Blessings Farm, and are looking forward to helping that farm grow.  We were very happy to see the boys move to a new farm together.  Merlin and Groucho are just 1 day apart in age, and have been pasture mates and best buddies since birth.

We are excited about a new farm in our area where several of our special alpacas will be moving next month.  We will be posting more information about this new farm in Galax as they get the alpacas moved to their farm and open to the public.  Our incredible Lord Tennyson will be leading their new herd that will start with Maximus, Cocoabean and Star Sapphire, and the sweet Windy Darling.

We are excited for these families, and look forward to working with them as they grow their farms.  If you are looking to begin an alpaca farm or grow your existing farm, let us know how we can help you.  We have several other beautiful alpacas for sale, and would love to talk with you about them.  Call or email today with any questions or to set up a time to come by the farm.

It’s A Boy – a really cute one!

zorroOkay, all alpaca crias are cute, but some are particularly adorable.  Our sweet Ima Joy gave birth to an incredible little boy this morning.  Peaceful Heart’s Zorro was born around 9:30am on September 21.  He has incredible markings in the white and brown of his dam, and the true black of his sire Maximus.


Zorro is out of our multicolor alpaca line that includes Ima Joy’s siblings, and some of her offspring.  Zorro particularly reminds us of one of the first crias we bought to start our farm.  Vesta, Ima Joy’s brother, was one of our first alpacas. We bought him and their mother Natasha when he was just a few months old.

Vesta, Zorro's Uncle

We invite you to come meet Zorro.  He and Ima Joy are now by the store in the front pasture with Hawkeye, Star Sapphire, and Gandalf and their mothers.

We hope you can join us this weekend for National Alpaca Farm Days, but we are open daily and invite you to come by anytime. The leaves are starting to show a hint of color, and the Parkway is lovely this time of year.
