Alpacas

alpaca for webNo visit to Heartland Farm is complete without a visit to our alpacas. We have 18 alpacas in residence – eight females, a herdsire, three geldings and six yearlings. Over the years, 20 crias (babies) have been born at the Farm.

You might find these lovely animals in the pens near the barn, loafing in the barn itself or grazing in one of the pastures.

We raise alpacas for their fleece and for their organic compost as well as for breeding. We spin the fleece, sell yarn and roving as well as knitted and crocheted articles made from alpaca yarn.

See both yarn and finished products in our Gift Shop.
