Enjoying new pastures
Alpacas were domesticated some 6,000 years ago by the native people of the Andean Altiplano and cherished for their luxurious fiber. Today alpacas now live throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand as well as in their native lands and the fiber is often compared to cashmere. With a gentle dispositions and high levels of intelligence, alpacas are truly a joy to keep. These "easy keepers" consume very little feed and have a minimal impact on the land itself. Compared to cattle or horses that routinely consume 50+ pounds of feed per day, the alpaca's daily consumption of just @ 4 pounds of hay seems a pittance. The actual costs of per year of care / feed is only about $500/year per animal once you have established your farm.You can work at raising alpacas on any scale, it can be a farm business or a hobby, full-time or part-time and work from home. While in North America there are some very large breeding and fiber farms the great thing about owning alpacas is that it is possible to have just as rewarding an experience with just two! .
