Ottawa Creek Alpacas and Farm Shop is in the north-western corner of Delaware County, OH. We are easily accessible from I 71. When you drive into our parking area you will be greeted by our group of male alpacas who crave attention, especially Ottawa Peruvian Blue Jacket (Jack) who is a full Accoyo. Since he is the largest, he usually manages to get most of the attention. Our farm shop is a part of the old barn and was once used as a milk house. Of course it has been renovated, but it still has the old beams and is definitely a farm shop with shelves brimming with alpaca products and a few other farm related items.

We started into the alpaca business when we were both 62 years old with no farming experience. Retirement didn't sound very exciting, and since we had lived out here for 30 years, alpacas was the answer to keep us moving and looking forward to each new day. We bought 3 females with very good lineage, and within 4 months we added a beautiful little female cria and an outstanding male cria. Of course we didn't know much, but they were very patient and kind to us. If we could change anything about this venture, it would have been to discover these wonderful creatures when we were at least 10 years younger. And also, it would have been nice to have had more female crias since we had a run of 12 straight males. The boys are a beautiful and delightful group.

We have lots of stories to tell, and we've met many wonderful people throughout the alpaca network.

We welcome farm visitors and will respond to all inquiries.

Re: Alpaca Herd Dispersal

We are seeking help in finding new homes for our herd of wonderful alpacas due to owner aging and health concerns. We purchased our foundation animals in 2003, and from the original 3 Peruvian Huacaya alpacas our herd has increased to 27 alpacas and a wonderful guard llama. All animals are registered and in very good health with colors ranging from bright white to true black. Due to owner health issues we have not actively shown nor bred for several years so they have had great lives just eating and growing wonderful fiber.
After struggling the past few years with little help we are faced with the reality that we can no longer care for them, nor can we provide the meaningful existence that they should be used for. It’s a heartbreaking end to a joyful journey of simply knowing and caring for such wonderful creatures. Of that we are thankful!
We have not been able to sell or relocate any of our alpacas on a local basis and are reaching out to help with finding new homes for them
