Rhodes Alpacas' Profile
Our beautiful alpacas now graze calmly on land once lined with countless rows of strawberry plants. This picturesque setting has been in our family for 3 generations, and has been used for many farming ventures, the most recent as a U-pick strawberry farm. After our Dad passed away a few years ago, we knew we had to use the land for something productive. An article about alpacas sparked Kevin’s interest, and the active research into alpaca farming began!
After visiting multiple farms, going to shows, and learning as much as we could, we purchased 5 foundation females of various colors and strong genetics. We then built a 30′ by 50′ barn, planted orchard grass (where the strawberries used to be), and put up a solid fence around our new 5 acre pasture. It was an exciting day in August 2009 when our alpacas arrived at their new home!
