Alpacas are a great lifestyle companion
Our main aim as an ethical alpaca fibre farm is to raise healthy and happy alpacas that produce quality fibre. Our alpacas are only sold to owners who are committed to caring for them now and in the future. This means:
enough pasture for grazing (minimum of 5 acres in Mediterranean Central Victoria);
shade, shelter, clean water, and additional hay when pasture is dry or insufficient;
annual shearing, 6-monthly vaccination, vitamin D supplementation during autumn/winter/spring;
vet attention in case of accidents or illness;
ongoing care during their lifetime (alpacas live an average of 20 years, with many living longer than this!)
We suggest prospective alpaca owners purchase a minimum of 3 alpacas of the same gender (unless you already have alpacas), as they are herd animals. This means alpacas require the companionship of other alpacas of the same gender in order to live healthy and happy lives. Alpacas often have their "best friends" and therefore we might suggest certain packages to keep friends together.
