Some of the Benefits of Purchasing from Windrush Alpacas

Some of the Benefits of Purchasing from Windrush Alpacas

We appreciate that there are many alpaca breeders from whom you can purchase your alpacas.  However, we feel that the relationship between buyer and seller is just as important as the alpaca itself.  Below are just some of the benefits that you will experience when you choose Windrush Alpacas.
  • Assistance in making a decision:  We will gladly assist you in making the decision as to which alpaca would be the best investment for you. Whether you are new to this business or not, most people have many questions they need answered in advance. We want you to be completely satisfied with your ultimate decision and will do everything in our power to make it so.
  • Benefit from our knowledge:  Having been in the alpaca industry for over 11 years, we have acquired a wealth of knowledge over that time.  We will happily share our extensive knowledge and experiences with you.  We were fortunate enough to have wonderful mentors when we first started our alpaca business and we want to make sure that you do, too.
  • Full and on-going customer support:  Following your purchase we want you to feel that you can contact us at any time if you have questions or need help with your alpacas.  We will always endeavor to provide factual answers to your questions and concerns, and if we do not know the answer we will refer you to someone who does.
  • Owner financing:  Many people are not in a position to purchase an alpaca outright, and few banks or financial institutions will finance such a purchase.  To assist you, we are willing to provide financing.  Typically we ask for 25% of the purchase price as a down payment with the balance to be paid off in monthly installments over two years.  Currently we do not charge interest on financed alpacas, but this is subject to change.  As we are taking a risk by financing an alpaca, we do require that the alpaca remain in our care on our premises until the balance is paid in full.  We highly recommend all financed alpacas are insured for their purchase price.
  • One free breeding:  All purchased female alpacas come with one subsequent free breeding to any breeding male alpaca solely owned by Windrush Alpacas.
  • Breeding allowance:  Each female alpaca purchased from us entitles you to one breeding per year to any breeding male alpaca solely owned by Windrush Alpacas at the discounted price of $750.  This breeding allowance is good for the lifespan of the purchased female alpaca or until you sell her.  During this time, you can opt to use the breeding allowance instead for any other female alpaca you may own.
  • Boarding opportunities: As a new or experienced breeder, you may welcome the chance to board your new alpacas with us until your own farm is ready or it is convenient to transport.  By boarding your alpaca with us you get the advantage of our many years of experience in alpaca management.  Boarding also allows you to start building your herd; you can purchase a single alpaca and board him or her with us until you have acquired other alpacas.  As an owner of boarded alpaca, you are welcome and encouraged to come and visit your alpacas and also take part in herd health days and other farm activities.

We truly want your alpaca purchase and subsequent ownership to be a successful and satisfying experience, so please call us with any questions you may have.
