We take very seriously our commitment to the alpacas that we breed. We will spend as much time as is required with every prospective purchaser of alpacas to help them be 100% sure of their decision to go ahead.
We will help every purchaser decide whether they are initially interested in a non-breeding group of alpacas or whether they want to get going with a breeding herd.
We will describe each alpaca that the buyer is considering, explain its relationship to others in the group, give an indication of its quality by comparison to others, and point out any faults if applicable.
We will visit the alpacas' intended new home to advise, if required, on fencing, housing, pasture management etc.
We will ensure that every new alpaca keeper has full training in the husbandry skills that they need and will support them in this once they take ownership. Every alpaca goes to its new home with a well-fitting headcollar and a "grow and swap" arrangement. And each alpaca's routines and previous history are given in writing and fully explained.
We don't maintain a Sales List as such as we tailor the group of animals offered to prospective buyers depending on their needs and aspirations. We can supply groups of yearling non-breeding males, breeding females, females with cria at foot, experienced and proven breeding males and unproven young high-quality males ready to breed. Breeding females will normally be being sold pregnant and, depending on the time of year, may be pregnant with a cria at foot.
If you are interested in finding out whether alpacas are right for you and in learning more, please get in touch. We welcome visits from anyone interested to explore the possibility of ownership and will give advice freely, fully and without any obligation.
We do have some bottom lines.
We will NEVER sell an alpaca singly unless it is going to join an existing group of like animals (males with males, females with females)
We will NEVER sell alpacas without establishing a "relationship" with the buyer first. We are not interested in a sale for a sale's sake
We will NEVER sell alpacas to anyone who is unwilling to have us visit their premises beforehand
