Alpaca T-Shirts

Last year we ordered T-shirts with our farm logo to wear around the farm. We thought they were great, but were surprised by how many people asked if we sold them because they’d like one too. We decided we’d get some and make them available for sale. They just came in this week and are now for sale in the store and online. We will also have them available for sale at the Hillsville Flea Market August 29 through Sept 1.

The shirts are 100% cotton, made by Hanes, and are very comfortable.  They are available in sizes Small to Extra Large.  You can purchase the T-shirts through our online store at the following link.

New Alpaca Teddy Bears & Toys

{Updated January 2015}  We have a great selection of alpaca teddy bears in sizes from 3 to 15 inches available in the store and online now.  They range in color from the natural white, fawn, brown and multicolor to the lovely pastel shades, and right now include some adorable panda bear style alpaca bears.  Each unique alpaca teddy bear is handcrafted from 100% alpaca..

We also have several different size and styles of plush alpaca toys.  Like our alpaca teddy bears, we have alpaca toys made from the fluffy and warm huacaya fleece or the silky smooth suri fleece, though they are only available in the natural colors.  Our alpacas range in size from 4 to 14 inches.

Our newest addition to our toy selection is our alpaca shepherdess puppet set.  Each set contains a shepherdess in traditional Peruvian dress and two alpacas of different colors.  We also have sets of 6 alpacas of different colors, as well as a wide selection of animal puppets hand knit from alpaca.

Also online and in the store are the fun activity books produced by the Alpaca Owners Association.  Learn about alpacas while coloring, creating crafts, and preparing fun snacks.

You can see all these fun gifts at the farm store or online.

Incredible Alpaca Sale

We are offering our best prices ever on our widest selection of alpacas for sale!  Our pastures are full, which is a great opportunity for those who want to start or grow their own farms.

We have found that the perfect farm size for us is between 40-50 alpacas.  This size allows our family to keep up with all the alpacas and spend the time with them we enjoy so much while also leaving time for the farm store, online store, creating fiber art products for sale, and offering classes.  We love all aspects of raising alpacas from the births of our adorable crias to the creation of alpaca shawls and scarves to getting to introducing farm visitors to alpacas and their fabulous fiber.

We currently have 58 alpacas on the farm, with more due in the fall, so it is time for our biggest alpaca sale ever.

We have 11 male alpacas for sale, ranging in age from 7 months to 5 years.  These boys are herdsire quality offered at pet/fiber boy prices with further discounts for purchasing multiple boys.  They include genetics from The Aga Khan, Hemingway, Bueno, Jedi Accoyo, and Royal Fawn, and come in a great selection of colors.  You can learn more about the boys here.

We also have listed 14 alpaca females for sale.  These girls are all great quality females.   Some have been the foundation of our farm, others are the offspring of our foundation females and herdsires, including two daughters of Lord Tennyson and two Powergrid daughters.  We also have a few girls who were born off the farm, who bring their own genetic backgrounds to the mix.  Genetic lines among the females for sale include Bueno, Hemingway, Evander, Guellermo, Emilio, Timoteo, Don Juan and Caligula among others.  All of them will provide a great foundation for any farm.  You can see the complete list of girls for sale here.  The girls range in age from 11 months to 7 years, and include two mothers with their female crias born in June at their sides.

If you are looking for some wonderful alpacas, take time to look through our sales lists and give us a call.  We’d love to introduce you to any of the alpacas for sale and talk with you about which are the right alpacas for you and about raising and caring for alpacas in general.
