In 2010 we started keeping Alpacas in the small hamlet of Fangdale Beck where we live. Within a few years we had grown our herd and we now focus on breeding Alpacas using elite genetics.
Alpaca ownership is hugely rewarding and a welcome distraction from our work lives.
Each year we look forward to our new Cria being born, to processing our raw fleece into yarn and to taking our Alpacas to shows across the country.
Alpacas are good natured, full of personality and instinctively gregarious.
If you would like to find out more about keeping Alpacas then do get in touch.
There are those who specialise in yarn production, others keep Alpacas as pets and a growing number of owners, including ourselves, focus on breeding Alpacas to improve fleece quality for the burgeoning British Alpaca fibre industry.
Our breeding programme draws on elite genetics including those of our own herd sire Beck Brow Crafter with the aim of improving the fleece characteristics and conformation of our Alpaca progeny each year.
We are constantly learning and updating our husbandry to maximise the conditioning and welfare of our Alpacas.
