Mischevious Phoenix and Cicero

Here’s Phoenix (in black) and Cicero (mid brown) all grown up and ready for shearing.  Cicero has just been certified as a stud male and is learning the ropes.  Phoenix is still just a youngster at 1 year old.  They are great companions and despite having lovely fibre, they love to roll down the hillsides in the dirt.

With the addition of our meat products we have a full range of products from fibre, knitwear, alpaca quilts, meat and of course, our alpacas available for sale through the website or direct at the farm.  We are happy to arrange group tours and visits and would be delighted to share our enthusiasm and knowledge about alpacas with you.  Browse through our shop categories here.
