We have been a part of the alpaca industry for more than 16 years and it has been wonderful for us; however, it is time for us to move on. With new career opportunities it is with a heavy heart that we are selling our herd. We will still continue to provide our expertise, knowledge and training along with maintaining the relationships we have built over the years.

We also have several farm and marketing items for sale and many items are selling quickly. Take a look under the store blog for detailed items available for sale. We are continuing to update this site and have many items and equipment available for sale which have not yet been listed. If there is something you may be interested in please give us a call or send us an email. The majority of our farm equipment and items are available for sale. Supplies and equipment include our 20 foot custom designed alpaca stock trailer, scale, panels, buckets, Kawasaki Mule 4x4, hay and bale bags, etc.
