Our breeding goal since 1998 is to focus on raising the highest quality of mainly colored huacaya alpacas as evidenced by outstanding pedigrees, elite histograms, impeccable conformation and consistent top ribbon winners in the largest alpaca shows. Our herd is comprised mostly of Peruvian/Accoyo and Chilean/Accoyo blends with 1/2 to 3/4 Accoyo in each offspring.
We have used Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) as tools to further differentiate outstanding alpacas since 2008. We also sort our fiber and keep an individual record on each alpaca since 2008 to provide further data for our fleece development program and to maximize profits from our fiber harvests.
Due to our desire to be more active with our church and charities such as Quechua Benefit, of which Daryl is President, you will not find us in the halter ring at this point after showing in the ring for 10 years, but you will see our fleeces winning ribbons in some of the largest shows around the U.S.
Any female alpaca purchased from us comes with a 50% off listed breeding fees of our award winning and great EPD herd sires as long as she is owned by the original purchaser.
Breeding services are limited to drive by with available agisting services with close by farms and also mobile breedings within 200 miles ( mileage charges extra). Breeding packages may be purchased with lower prices as more breedings are bought.
We offer mentoring and consulting services free of charge to those who make alpaca purchases from us. We also offer fee based consulting services to the general public. Daryl is past president of an AOBA Affiliate and served over 3 1/2 years on the AOBA Judge Training and Certification Committee. Come and see us or call today, if you would like to benefit from our experience in successfully raising alpacas.
Consistent Quality you can Measure! These types of alpacas sell for the highest prices whether show or fleece quality and are in great demand.
