Alpacas are herd animals

As alpacas are herd animals we always sell them as pairs especially when they are born around the same time and are naturally best buddies.

Roscoe was born 14th May and Boey 24th May 2019. These two will be great as pets and lawnmowers and are currently very good with children as Roscoe loves hugs and Boey is very inquisitive and gentle.

Both are males and need to be wethered by the end of the year. They must be kept together and shorn every Spring. Alpacas live up to 20 years and sometimes even up to 25 years old so this is a very long term commitment.

Also as part of our service at Little Valley Farm we offer mentoring programmes for new alpaca and farm owners. Even if you only have two alpacas, you need a secure pen for grooming and shearing days. We can show you how to set up the best pens for alpacas.

We will also review the alpacas worming and vaccination schedule as this is something that you need to do regularly as well as toe nail clipping.

Approx price of each alpaca as follows:

Young males / wethers from $550 to $800.

Breeding females from $900 up to $3000

Non-breeding females from $600 up to $1500

Registered stud from $2000++

Stud service (TBA based on number of females).

Prices of alpacas are based on age and fleece quality plus GST. These prices may change and we will advice accordingly. We sell Huacaya and Suri alpacas and also offer stud service to the right alpaca owners.

Wethers as pets coming up for sale shortly.

All alpacas are vaccinated, wormed, drenched and nails trimmed every three months.  If you are new to alpacas, we will take the time to show you how to trim their nails and do their vaccinations and worming. 

Our wethers are not registered but often sold as pets. They are such fun to have around as they are quite playful and goofy when in a herd of other wethers.  They love to be in a large herd and are good with sheep but you need to have the correct number of alpacas per sheep if you are looking for guard animals.  An alpaca should never be left alone in a paddock they will die of loneliness and recommend 2 or 3 for small farms.

Our prices include GST.
