Fiber and Alpacas and Services, Oh My!

Outstanding alpacas offered affordably, OnAgain OffAgain Farm is home to award winning alpacas. We raise and sell breeding stock as well as alpacas for fiber and pets. Their fiber is hypoallergenic and warm, lending itself to a variety of uses from fine garments to insulation. In addition to animal sales, we offer breeding services as well as sales of raw fiber, yarn, and other items made from our alpaca's fiber. We also carry socks and other alpaca related items sourced in the USA or Fair Trade from Peru in our store.
Alpacas are "green" animals in that they produce a renewable yearly product and are easy on the environment. They also have the benefit of providing a never ending supply of alpaca poo much to the delight of gardeners.



Our story:
After several years of "on the fence/off the fence," OnAgain OffAgain Farm was established in 2009.
We come with years of animal experience as well as BS degrees from Cornell University -Karen's in Animal Science, Juergen's in Agricultural Education. While our kids were little, we did the horse thing with two horses on 5 acres. Then we moved to Spartanburg, leaving our horsey life behind. Facing an empty nest, one night Juergen saw an ad on tv about alpacas and thought "hmmm, I'd like to do that!" Karen was completely on board. We did our research and scouted for properties thinking we were going to end up in the country. That's when we found the best of both worlds - 6 acres of privacy in the middle of a subdivision, 5 minutes from any shopping including our favorite farm store, and no restrictions on land use. A failed attempt by the city to annex us, made us decide the time was right to start our alpaca adventure. We started 2010 with 9 alpacas and by the end of that year we had grown to 21 and have never looked back. It is just the two of us working the farm with occasional help from family, friends and neighbors - especially at shearing time. The alpacas are the talk of the neighborhood, proving that they can fit in anywhere. Now that Karen is retired from her nightshift job at the hospital, we expect to expand more on agritourism and alpaca products.

We are a full service farm offering mentoring before, during, and after the sale.

We offer shearing services - specializing in small farms.

Spring Has Sprung!

The Bradford Pears are blooming, finally. Everytime I look out my front window, I think there is snow on the trees. And with Spring , thoughts turn to breeding - check out our herdsires, cria - we're expecting 7, and shearing - which means I'll have lots of raw fleece and fiber products for sale from our herd. The alpacas are ready to shed their winter coats. Posting products on my online store is still a work in progress, but we are just a phone call away from an order. We have socks, dryer balls, felted soap, YARN, handknitted - hats, scarves, toys, ROVING, rugs, FELT SHEETS. And don't forget about our PacaPal Program. As you can see, there's something for everyone.
