We are a small farm in South Jersey. We are located about a mile or two inland from the Delaware Bay, right at the meadows edge. That is why we picked our farm name. We saw our first alpaca in early September 2007 on our way to the Jersey shore.
I had seen an add in a magazine probably two years or so before that and became very interested but did not pursue the prospect of owning any of these unique animals. After meeting our first alpaca and doing some research we decided to take the plunge. We have started with two males and two females.
We brought our two males home in mid May 2008 and our females came home at the end of July 2008. The day we brought our boys home we had a hard rain shower, but after they were unloaded and we were on our porch watching them the sun was trying to come out and we ended up with a beautiful double rainbow.
We took that as a sign that these wonderful animals are our pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
In June 2009 we were blessed with a beautiful female cria named Roxy.
We have been raising Alpacas for 7 years now, and this is not a message that we are retiring but we have built our herd to the place that we want to be. We have learned so much along the way and are still learning.
We have been blessed with 5 females and 2 males born on our farm (pretty good odds). Now we are ready to start selling some of our wonderful Alpacas, so take a look at our list and although we think the prices are fair we are open to any reasonable offers.
Thanks for taking the time to visit our site and feel free to contact us with and questions or to set up a visit to our farm.
