Help is generally required at the start of any new project. Our entrance into alpaca farming, back in 2001, was no exception. Fortunately such help was at hand, from the start and on an ongoing basis. We originally worked closely with an Australian owned herd. We had their animals with us, for sale, while we built up our own herd. By the time we were ready to import our animals foot and mouth disease had just started in the UK so we imported a group of beautiful white Peruvian-derived alpacas, who were waiting in a Canadian quarantine station. A few others, Chilean-derived, were brought in from a farm in France.

Over the years a variety of people have fallen in love with our animals. Those who become truly dedicated become 'Alpacaholics'. These people come and spend time with us and generally get involved. One helps with the feed each day and a daily inspection, another helps with the Hands-On Days that we offer on some Sundays. In some cases they would love to have alpacas themselves but cannot either for financial reasons or because they do not have the land. Although there is a lot less work to do when farming alpacas than when farming conventional farm animals, a certain amount of routine care is required for a large herd such as ours - we usually average about 100 animals, having ranged from 70 up to 130. The numbers depend, of course, on sales versus births. A local vet has alpacas of his own and so has learnt a great deal about them over the years.
