A couple of times a year, we release several of our alpacas for sale. The best time to purchase alpacas is after shearing so you can see what’s underneath their beautiful fleece.
This month, we will be releasing a couple of wethers. They are 3 to 5 years old. They are great mates and should be kept together. Remember alpacas are herd animals and need to be kept with other alpacas, not other livestock.
Wethers are known for their lovely soft fleece and also good guarding nature. Please note, they can challenge a fox or kill a small domestic dog but they can not fight off a wild dog or a pack of wild dogs.
Alpaca's need to be shorn every year and we shear every October. We can give you a rundown on their annual vaccinations, worming, drenching, teeth and nail trimmings.
Little Valley Farm runs training days a couple of times a year so let us know if that is something that you need to do. We can also give you advice on the best shelters and pens to house alpacas.
To find out more about our alpaca's send us an email.
Alpacas start from $550++ depending on age, sex and fleece quality.
