After 6 years of research, we purchased our first two female alpacas in 2009. In March of 2010, we purchased our third female. We chose these girls based on proven, well known genetics with fleece formation, growth and statistics at the high end of industry standards. We boarded (called agisting) our girls until our farm was ready for them and moved to Sullivan County, Pa. in August 2011 with three pregnant females and one yearling male. By October 2011, our first three cria were born on our farm.
Our location 3 miles outside of the town of Dushore had been a seasonal cabin for 12 years and was an obvious choice for our farm. We chose Amish built barns and added the farm store when we saw the beauty of their work.
