This caused great hilarity among our local farmer friends!
We started off with 3 pet Alpacas, Barney, Brillo and Bam to see how we would manage keeping them. Within a year we were hooked and started to purchase Alpacas with excellent genetics to establish a small breeding herd.
We derive considerable pleasure from Alpaca ownership and look forward each year to our Cria being born, to processing our fleeces into yarn and showing our Alpacas across the country.
Nicky, who is a part-time GP, takes the lead on husbandry and all things medical while Deborah, who is an academic, takes responsibility for promoting the business.
Our Alpacas provide a welcome distraction from our busy working lives and we can often be seen taking them for walks or relaxing with an evening G&T out in the fields.
