One of Alpaca Country Estates strongest assets is owning exceptional herdsires as well as high quality dams. With over thirty current herdsires, Nancy meticulously decides which animal is the ultimate choice to breed to whom, planning every breeding decision for an outcome of soft, fine fleece, with lots of dense fiber on those “teddy bear” critters with their pleasing personalities. There is nothing more rewarding than the thrill of seeing the results of your labor of love, by viewing that newly born cria and knowing that you have another winner!
Our strong breeding program has an emphasis on uniformity, fineness with a soft handle, brightness, and density. Currently, we have been rewarded with color champions and reserve champions in black, grey, brown, fawn, and white. We continue to strive to improve upon our high standards within the alpaca community.

BEFORE YOU BUY...
We are here for you through the process of education to owning your 1st alpaca.
Alpaca Country Estates is not as interested in selling you an alpaca as much as we want to educate you on the life of being an alpaca owner. We will help you decide if alpaca-ranching is some to add to your life. We want to insure our babies go to homes that understand what it takes to own , or should we say, "be owned" by alpacas.
