How it all started……

We first were introduced to alpacas at a local country fair we attended when we lived in Ottawa. Ken was posted there as a Chief in the Navy and Robbie operated a Communications and Marketing company. We were instantly enraptured by these gentle and unusual looking animals with such soft, thick fibre. The owner answered all our questions and invited us to contact him for a tour so we could see more animals and learn more about them.

From that moment on we knew what we would do as our retirement project and started researching everything we could find about alpacas on the internet. We were fortunate to attend an alpaca seminar north of Toronto which added to our knowledge and desire to become owners. We started visiting alpaca farms in Ontario (which weren’t plentiful in 2000) and in 2001 purchased our first two animals – Gracie and Amaryllis. We boarded them at the farm they were purchased from and continued to research more and spend time with them and the other alpacas at the farm.

In 2003 we moved to Kelowna and were thrilled when our alpacas arrived safely that fall with 3 new cria. We have continued to search for the best possible genetics in breeding as we grew our herd. We love to share our animals and experience and knowledge about them with others.

We offer tours and information sessions and ask that you call us to let us know when you will be coming. Telephone: 250-707-0927. All of our animals are halter trained, walk well on a lead, and show well.

In addition we have products for sale including: socks, sweaters, gloves, mittens, scarves, felt shoe and boot insoles, and skeins for knitting along with alpaca duvets, pillows, mattress pads and dust protectors. We have 3 wonderful knitters who love working with the alpaca fibre and are able to provide a unique, ultra warm, custom garment for you.
