About The Crafty Alpaca Farm

In 2004 my husband and I decided to jump in with both feet into the farming industry. Neither one of us was raised on a farm, but both of us are animal lovers, with me stating at a very young age that I wanted to live on a farm. What I didn’t know was that it would be an alpaca farm.

People often ask what made us choose alpacas. I made a list of what would make good livestock for us, keeping in mind we had two very young children at the time. My list included the facts that my children had to be safe around them, they did not smell, did not make much noise, did not tear up our yard, were pretty to look at, and were a tax write-off. Visiting a fair one day we came across the alpaca. It was love at first sight!

The biggest joys of this business are having had our children grow up living and learning the business. The other biggest joy is in the people we meet. We take educating the public seriously. Bringing joy to people in both the experience of meeting the alpacas and in providing quality goods is what makes us special.

We are the only farm in our area that produces handmade items made of hand spun yarn or felted alpaca fiber. Our products are of high quality and are one-of-a-kind creations. We enjoy sharing our alpacas and products with the public, so go ahead and click on the “Book your Appointment” button for a tour and shopping experience. Hope to see you soon!
