Alpaca Breeder Farm
Welcome to Independence Farm!
After raising beef cows for more than 30 years, we decided to work
with a more gentle, intelligent animal: the alpaca. Once Ken, a financial
adviser figured the tax benefits it was a no brainer. Our first alpacas
were delivered on Good Friday 2007 and we have been enjoying them
ever since. It is a thrill to see the birth of new crias and watch them
struggle to get up on those wobbly baby legs. Then within an hour or
two they are racing around the field. In the evening, we are tickled to
watch the cria frolicking through the fields. Raising alpacas is a
calm,peaceful type of farming.
Our farm is named Independence Farm because our first cria was born
on the 4th of July.
Our main breeding decision is to breed for animals who retain their
quality fleece for many years. We aim for uniform, fine, dense, shiny,
and crimpy fleece. Exceptional body conformation and pleasant
dispositions add icing to the cake.
