About Huacaya Alpacas
Alpacas are the sweetest looking creatures! Indigenous to the Andes Mountains of South America, Alpacas were first imported to the United States in 1984.
The harsh environment of the Andes has created an extremely hardy animal, so minimal housing is needed. The alpaca’s three-chambered stomachs allow for extremely efficient digestion. Because there are no viable seeds in the manure, alpaca manure does not need composting to enrich pastures or ornamental landscaping. Alpacas have only lower teeth at the front of their mouths; therefore, they do not pull grass up by the roots.
The joy, ease of care and potential profitability of raising alpacas has attracted people from many walks of life to become owners and breeders. We raise our alpacas for their fiber and enjoy them for their gentle manner and charming beauty.
