Our first cria for this year was born today, May 24, 2017. See his picture on our alpaca page.
Foothills Alpaca Farm was established in April, 2006 and began with a pregnant female and a juvenile female. Before even having the animals moved from the farms we purchased them from, we lost the juvenile female to an allergic reaction to a vaccine. We were determined to start our herd, so we purchased a pregnant female and her 3 week old female cria. We have grown in the last decade and our alpacas are like our children.
As to how our farm got it’s name, our farm borders the Foothills State Forest, thus you have Foothills Alpaca Farm.
We love visitors – come spend some time in the barn or watching the alpacas graze – it does the soul good! Over the years, we have made many wonderful items from our very own Alpacas. We shear them once a year to harvest their wool, or what we call “fiber”. It produces incredible items such as; Socks, Scarves, Roving, Natural Colored Yarn, Mittens, Hats, Gloves, and many other wonderful things.
