This is what we breed for and produce!

" I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own."

Andy Warhol

A heads up. We no longer show. But we have not stopped producing show quality suris!

We began our alpaca journey in 1991! A lot of stories to tell from our time in the US where we farm alpacas now and in Australia where we started. So we may be able to help you avoid many of the mistakes we have made but we managed to survive!

We are Al and Jude and welcome you. If there is something specific you are looking for contact us and we'll help. We can help in a lot of different ways, just search our menu above or better still go to www.onlypucaraknows.com where you will get a lot of helpful information to assist you in your alpaca experience.


We DO have time for you! Even though Jude is a "Senior alpaca judge" with AOA (Alpaca Owners Association in the US) and also an Australian Alpaca Association certified judge, she loves to communicate with alpaca enthusiasts at any level. Being a co-author of "The Art and Science of Alpaca Judging" and also an AOA judge trainer she has a profound knowledge of all facets of alpaca. Alan besides having experience sitting on many industry committees and the Australian National board since 1991 enjoys nothing more than assisting alpaca breeders with all facets of alpaca breeding and production.

We have been using Embryo Transfer program with considerable success since it being allowed in 2017 so please ask about buying or harvesting your own embryos. We were the first in the US and spend time assisting other breeders with this technique which can be so productive but is just new to the US.
