Alpacas of Northern Blessings in Michigan

Welcome to beautiful northern Michigan! We are a small alpaca farm in the cherry capital of America. Our herd of 12 Huacaya alpacas are nestled among hundreds of acres of tart cherry trees. This is where we are currently breeding and raising our growing herd. Our focus is on hiring the best alpaca herdsire service we can from top breeders known for producing the highest quality Huacaya Alpacas. Take a look at our top quality herd genetics and you will see diversity and greatness in the lineage of each. We are constantly striving to improve all aspects of our herd taking into account the fiber and conformational needs of each of our foundation females.
We try to have alpacas to meet every budget and every need, be it a pet, hobby farmer, fiber farm, or serious breeder. We will help you learn about the alpaca world, work with you very step and continue to be available to you to answer questions.
Every Purchase also come with a free one year introductory membership in our National organization: The Alpaca Owners Association.
We welcome you to contact us with questions or come for a visit. We never get bored talking alpacas!
