Passionate about nature and animals, I always wanted to raise and care for rare animals without the intention of slaughter. My research led me to alpacas. After visiting two farms, I literally fell in love with a young female named Diva. And so began my adventure… and what an adventure it has been! Today, my goal is to improve the quality of wool fiber produced by alpacas and to develop superior rearing methods. I also strive to introduce our fiber to more people, contributing to the expansion of the alpaca wool market. I welcome everyone to come meet my animals and witness my process. Come visit us and see for yourself how feasible raising alpacas is.
