Mentoring Program

We have been fortunate to have found a few farms who have become our trusted mentors in alpaca care and husbandry. Without these wonderful people, Nancy Ogan and Welther Zepeda at Double "O" Good Alpacas, Ann and Paul Misterka at CCAP Alpacas, our experiences would have been different, we are sure.

The value of a mentor farm is difficult to quantify but without them, we know our beginning years would have been much harder. Now, we want to share our experiences, both good and bad, with new farms just as our mentors did for us.

If you're thinking about alpacas, or already decided they are in your future, let us help you. We'll do our best to guide you in your decision making, through mentoring and educational offerings through AlpacaU.
