Welcome to Crazy Acres! We are located in Lakeville MN. We purchased our alpaca back in 2007 and jumped into the alpaca lifestyle.
When we got into alpacas back in 2007 our goal was to improve our herd one generation at a time. We were going to be a breeding farm that the sale of stud fees and alpaca were going to sustain our farm. As time goes by our farm goals mutate. When we breed we still stand by the line above but now we are focusing on the fiber. With the goal that the fiber will sustain the farm. We focus on fiber and its best uses, outlets and opportunities. Of course we also want to enjoy the alpaca experience.
The animals love to have visitors and we love to talk alpaca, so if you are interested give us a call, drop us an email and come out and visit!
All you NFP members we are certified sorters.
Not a member, check this co-op out. They are purchasing a dehairing machine! I am very excited for the coop and the fiber industry in American with this option available we should see even more alpaca fiber out in the market. The cost to have your fiber sorted is $15 per fleece & neck. Curious about what this $15 gets you contact us and we can hopefully answer all the questions you have. The coop is averaging $35 per pound profit on alpaca fiber, but there is a time lag so if you have questions please contact us or a board member. http://naturalfiberproducers.com/
Not interested in being a member, that's okay having your fiber certified sorted is also great for you! The information you receive will help you make breeding decisions and best use decisions for your fleece!
