L & R Alpaca Haven Farm began a few years after we moved to a house with 4 acres that had a two stall barn. After discussions with the family about getting some farm animals, my daughter saw a Facebook post about someone giving away a male alpaca. Our initial attempt at acquiring him was unsuccessful. Shortly thereafter, the alpaca’s owner decided to give up their entire herd of eight! After a conversation with my husband, we decided to jump in and try our hand at alpaca farming. We acquired the entire herd in July of 2016 and have since added more, including several born at our farm. The love and passion we have for animals made it an easy decision that we have never regretted. (By the way, that original alpaca is TJ, who is every visitor’s favorite!)
Since then, we have moved to a 25 acre property with more room and better facilities to grow our herd.
Alpacas are such gentle, peaceful animals and are a true joy to be around. Regardless of your age “Alpacas make you smile” is what I tell everyone and thus, so far, no one has ever disagreed! We absolutely LOVE our alpacas.
