with a focus on fiber from the beginning
Why buy from us?
Because at Turkey Creek Alpacas, our number one top priority is YOU, the customer!
Since 2001 we have been assisting new and existing farms with everyday questions, barn & site setup, pasture management, training, you name
it! We are also very fiber-driven and proof of that can be found in our farm produce home-grown and hand-woven, knitted, crocheted and felted products.
We breed for fineness and we pride ourselves on the high quality fleeces we are seeing throughout our herd. Take some time to read our fiber pages and you will see that we are committed to growing superior fleeces. High quality alpacas and customer service are what we've built our reputation on. Just ask our customers. More than once we've been told, we wish we would have come to you first!
Because we *are* small, we are able to provide full-time, on-site care for our animals, and 7-day-a-week assistance for our customers. We are there to assist you when needed. We pride ourselves on honesty, integrity and true friendship with our customers. We strive to hold the highest moral standards and uphold the ethics of the industry. We provide complete and
accurate health records for each animal. We have fine tuned our
record-keeping to indicate such things as a dam's exact breeding and birthing schedules, milk and colostrum production, cria birth weight and growth rates.
Our animals have been desensitized and trained at an early age making them easy to handle and care for, a pleasure to have around. We know each animal's personality, their quirks and particular habits. To us they are individuals, not just part of our herd.
We are always happy to work with our customers to ensure the animals you choose fit your needs! Visit our personal website for loads of helpful info - www.turkeycreekalpacas.com
