Munch is a sweet guy, born in 2006, he is our only gelding. He is outgoing, friendly and easy to lead. His job is to help raise up our baby boys. He is brought up to the barn the girls live in and he is companion and role model to the baby boys. This reduces the weaning stress on the cria. Munch is a classic gray.
Penny is a sweet gal that has been showing with me for a bunch of years. She frequently is part of a group of alpacas that gathers around visitors spontaneously for petting. This year she is changing jobs, we are hoping that she will become a mother. Penny is fawn. She is a nice choice for adopt an alpaca.
Kassidy just makes me smile, she always has and I can't even tell you why! Here is something to make you say "hmmm" she is Addy's mom and she and Zion should have made a black baby and didn't. Oh well! We are planning on Kassidy being a mom again too. She is jet black.
Whim is a cool dude, though not really friendly. He tolerates being handled well. He has very nice fiber, a real pleasure to spin. He also has a couple of cria here at the farm. He was standing in the sun in this picture, he's fawn, not orange colored.
Fanci Pants has a story which is best told with pictures. She changed quite a bit after she was named. Very friendly, she leads the group that likes to be petted by visitors. We are hoping to make her a mom also. Fanci is white.
Addy is a gorgeous fellow, turning two years old this summer. He would be an interesting pick for adopt an alpaca. He has vicuna markings which give him a dramatic look, two toned plus dark trim. He has already out grown his Dad, Zion. He is brown above fawn.
Zion is our senior male, born in 2004, he has been here since he was about a month old. He is Addy's dad, Fanci's granddad and Penny's great-granddad. Zion always showed in the ribbons. Zion in bay black.
Dy is a friendly girl that we acquired recently. Not only is she outgoing, but has very nice fiber. It is a pleasure to spin. Dy is white.
Steel is the new guy in the barn, he is a classic gray. We just got him and we are pinning our hopes for some babies born to him next summer!
Bronze level: You get to spend walk time with your alpaca. You can enjoy each other going for a walk in our country pastures (instruction included). This is a super choice for someone who is a hands-on animal person that thinks alpacas are really cool. Alpacas are individuals and we treat them with consideration. Not all are available for walks on lead.
Silver level: You choose either a skein of yarn, a pair of wrist warmers or a hat made from your alpaca’s fiber. We will custom make it for you. You will also receive walk time with your alpaca on lead. Not all alpacas are available for walks on lead. We will provide another alpaca for this if needed.
Gold level you will receive your choice of two skeins of yarn, or a hand-woven or knitted scarf from your alpaca’s fiber. This will be custom made for you. Dying some or all of the yarn so that you have a choice of color, can be done here at the farm. You will also receive walk time with your alpaca on lead. Not all alpacas are available for walks on lead. We will provide another alpaca for this if needed.

Diamond level is, of course, what the alpaca is about, their wonderful fiber! At this level you will receive your alpaca’s prime fiber, in roving or batt form, prepared to be spun, your choice. This will be from the shearing that your one year adoption falls in. The fiber will be sent to you when it is prepared, this year that looks to be in November. Our shearing date is in May this year. Only one Diamond Adoption for each alpaca per annual shearing. You will also receive walk time with your alpaca on lead. Not all alpacas are available for walks on lead.

To choose your alpaca, call me or text (802) 236-5615 before or after you press "Buy Now" to tell me your choice and to give me the information needed.
If your alpaca has a cria (baby) during the year you will receive a photo. However, pregnant and nursing moms may be observe only if that is what they want. We don’t stress moms and moms to be or their cria so you may have to step back and just observe. I have indicated the alpacas that I expect to breed this year so that you can choose accordingly.
Your adoption fees go directly toward the cost of keeping your alpaca over the course of the year. Your adoption does not in any way give you ownership of the alpaca.
The visits to the farm require advance notice of two weeks.
You are not to be at the farm when a farm person is not present. This is for your safety as the alpacas are tended by a guardian dog.
The alpacas are not to leave the fenced areas of the farm.
It is understood that an animal may be “adopted” by more than one individual at a time.
None of the alpacas that are offered for adoption are actively for sale. That said, sometimes unplanned things happen. In the event your animal is sold, you will be able to choose another animal for the duration of your adoption.
You may renew your alpaca adoption or choose a different alpaca, a 10% discount will be applied to the new adoption if it is within 30 days of the end of a previous adoption.
