WASATCH BACK ALPACAS

How it all Started

It all began with raising Navajo Churro Sheep, we did that for fourteen years and really enjoyed this process. In 2015 we decided to take our love of animals and the animal husbandry experience and expand into raising Alpacas. It has been an adventure we have really enjoyed.

Our Love for Alpacas

We have found Alpacas to be curious, gentle and peaceful animals who are pleasant to be around.

My primary goals are to enjoy the animals, have my sons benefit from growing up on a working farm, and supplement my income through selling their fiber and manure and breeding and selling their offspring. My sons and I have enjoyed the animals, getting to know others involved in the industry, and making new friends.

About Alpacas

Alpacas are generally safe, docile and pleasant animals to be around. Alpacas are also environmentally friendly and require little pasture or food. Their manure makes for very good fertilizer. You can raise 2 to 8 alpacas on an acre of land. Alpacas produce about 5-10 pounds of fleece per animal, per year. Their fleece is often compared to cashmere and is recognized worldwide for its fineness, softness, luster, durability, and excellent thermal qualities.

Come Meet the Alpacas

We would love for you to come to our farm and meet our alpacas. We enjoy talking about alpacas and will be glad to share our experience with you. Feel free to bring your questions about alpacas.
