“It's who we are in the still points that defines us.”

Welcome to the Website for the Virginia Alpaca Group. We are four farms located in the Great State of Virginia that have come together to create overall excellence in a BLACK Genetic herd of Seed Stock Alpacas.

We first purchased the entire black breeding program of Snowmass Alpacas in Sandpoint, Idaho. Thanks to Julie and Don Skinner, whose knowledge represents the best the industry has to offer. This elite group of males and females make up some of the finest black genetics in the world. Snowmass Alpacas has been "MAKING CHAMPIONS" with over thirty years of breeding experience which has proven herd excellence in both conformational elements and fiber quality. We strive to continue producing phenotypically and genetically reliable alpacas with a consistent fine bright healthy fleece.

Bay Shore Alpacas, Broad Creek Alpacas, Clearview Alpaca Farm and Elite Alpacas represents the East and West of Virginia. We are now home to the largest black huacaya herd in the United States.

We welcome a visit any time to see these magnificent animals.
