Welcome to Backwoods Alpacas. We would love to have you come by for a personal visit. We invite you to come sit in our shaded pastures and watch the alpacas pronking around and let them visit with you while we answer your alpaca questions.
Backwoods Alpacas was founded in August 2008, on the outskirts of Mansfield, Ohio. It all began with a late night commercial and a request for more information and was followed by a year of research. The animals were love at first sight it was just a matter of figuring out when and how! Who would have guessed we could have found a business to be involved in as a family that is so much fun!
We are a full-time small family farm, committed to the careful selection and breeding of this wonderfully unique animal. Our interests and breeding program is focused on producing an alpaca with the best fleece possible and to have lots of color. We interact with our alpacas on a daily basis; know each alpaca’s name, personality, habits and temperament. At Backwoods Alpacas we work hard to make our alpacas happy and content in their environment, we strive to offer healthy, sound alpacas that are conformationally correct, genetically strong.
People should visit as many farms as they can during their initial research. Compare what you see, and make purchases from breeders you are comfortable with and who offer strong support, we know many different breeders, and if we do not have what you are looking for currently, we will know someone who does.
You’ll find plenty to choose from at Backwoods Alpacas including specials tailored financing and extended live cria guarantees and more. We hope you’ll arrange a visit, let us share our excitement about the alpaca industry and assist you with your alpaca needs.
