Cardinal Acre Alpacas

Cardinal Acre Alpacas began in September of 2009 although the learning and the desire to own alpacas had begun several years earlier. We began with 3 and added 6 more soon thereafter. These past 3 years have flown by, there has been so much to learn about; their origins in South America, the proper housing, feeding,  and daily care for each alpaca.   The fleece of these alpacas is unbelieveably soft and the desire to have enough of it every year to have it processed into yarn and rovings led to aquiring more alpacas.  We have had six crias (babies) born to us since then. Our 15 alpacas range in ages from 4 months to 13 years old and colors of white, fawn, black, grey, brown. Each alpaca has a unique temperment and it has been fun to watch and learn, to fall in love with each and every one for his own special qualities.  Mr. Guns and Roses "Gunner", is the herd boss, even though he is not the largest. We have a 2 year old, LaValley who is trying to become the boss and is learning that this is not an easy process.  Our lovely ladies spend most of the day, grazing, looking for hay to graze on and walking about the pastures. Every once and a while the youngest alpacas will run about and jump and bump into anyone in their way.
 
At Cardinal Acre Alpacas we have a small gift shop called 'All Things Alpaca'.  Inside we offer a variety ofsocks, hats, mittens, glittens, scarves, sweaters, throws, blankets, stuffed animals.  Many of these items are hand knit locally from the fleece of our alpacas.  We also offer sales,  boardings, breedings and mostly helpful low key information about alpacas for those who may be considering owning a couple alpacas. Our hours are daily 9am - 6pm or by appointment. Please call 307-4582 for directions as the GPS will give wrong turns.  We look forward to seeing you soon. Our farm pictures can be seen on facebook at Cardinal Acre Alpacas.
