Alpacas

The rare Alpaca is a charming and valuable member of the Camelid family. Alpacas are prized for their luxurious and costly fiber, which breeders harvest by shearing once a year. An alpaca sweater or blanket is a cherished possession, frequently handed down from one generation to the next. Alpaca gestation period is 11 months. The baby is called a cria. Alpacas are a herd animal and a relative to the Andes Mountains of South America. Alpacas are very gentle, clean animals and make wonderful pets.

You can experience a bit of Alpaca farming firsthand with Chimney Hill Estate’s Alpaca Getaway Package – perfect for a unique birthday gift or a great introduction for anyone who is considering getting pet alpacas.

  Our Alpaca family consists of mothers and babies and companion and a protective llama (Paisley and Dolly) who stands guard over the herd. The alpacas are a beige color standing about 5 feet tall or so with sweet but shy dispositions. Paisley the Llama stands about 6 1/2 feet tall and is bi-colored a deep brown and beige. She is very curious and always on the outlook for an intruder. Beware squirrels, geese and groundhogs: Paisley is on the job.
