Welcome to our farm!
We're glad that you found us on Openherd. Please take a look at our sales lists and enjoy learning more about our farm. We welcome your inquiries and questions!
Beech Springs Alpacas is a medium sized farm in the northeast corner of North Carolina. It is a one woman operation, owned and managed by Kate Brown. The farm has grown from it's first starter package of 6 in 2003 to it's maximum of over 50, and to the current size of 26 animals in late 2013. I consider the farm venture as successful and immensely satisfying. Even in this wretched economy, sales have been made and networks expanded, to include the sale of 11 animals in the winter & spring of 2013 and another 11 in the early fall.
I have excellent quality huacayas from outstanding bloodlines to include Caligula, Casanova II, Silverado's Black Jack, Peruvian Glacial Storm, 4Peruvian Pachacuti, CPeruvian Silvio, Snowmass Nova, Premier's Absolute, Accoyo Bentley, and Accoyo Mozart. My overall plan is to primarily breed for a solid medium to dark colored, dense and finely fleeced alpaca..an animal with good health, conformation and temperament. My goal for the last few years was to diversify, expantion and improvement on my herdsire lineup.
Call and schedule a visit...a trip just to learn more about the animals, say hello, or just to get a break on your way to a beach vacation @ the Outer Banks.
I am able to tend to the alpacas myself (and a bit of help of a local college student), while maintaining an environment of low stress, good health and quality breeding techniques. It is just perfect to be able to see them all from my kitchen and deck!
Low stress, herd health and customer support...all of prime importance...and all available. Call for more information, or schedule a visit.
It is now late 2013, aand I have realized that it is soon time to retire from the business (or maybe get to the point where I can just board a few). I realize that it will take a while to sell the animals, as I want to be sure they go to the right homes. I am hoping to be able to put my land on the market by early 2015. Help me out here, and make an offer on the alpacas! You'll still see me at shows in the meantime.
