Artisan Alpacas LLC is a small farm dedicated to breeding alpacas for improved, elite fiber. We sell breeding stock and pet/fiber animals. Visitors welcome. Alpaca products for sale in our farm store.
After 6 years of research, we purchased our first two female alpacas in 2009. In March of 2010, we purchased our third female. We chose these girls based on proven, well known genetics with fleece formation, growth and statistics at the high end of industry standards. We boarded (called agisting) our girls until our farm was ready for them and moved to Sullivan County, Pa. in August 2011 with three pregnant females and one yearling male. By October 2011, our first three cria were born on our farm. Our location 3 miles outside of the town of Dushore had been a seasonal cabin for 12 years and was an obvious choice for our farm. We chose Amish built barns and added the farm store when we saw the beauty of their work. Our adventure as alpaca farmers has added new dimension to life. Watching the alpacas from our porch at the end of a long day is a peace I have no words to adequately describe.
We sell Breeding stock as well as Fiber/Pet animals. Come talk with us and we can show you how to understand the difference. We suggest folks new to alpacas visit several farms and ask many questions before making a purchase decision. We offer free boarding for a limited time to all of our customers. We will also board animals for other folks if needed at a per day cost that includes monthly herd health. We are available to Farm Sit at other alpaca farms within reasonable mileage. Go on vacation with no worries as we take care of your alpacas. Costs vary based on location, number of animals and number of per day visits/overnight care. If you buy an alpaca from us, we are your 24/7 consultant. We are also available to guide anyone who may need help with farm lay out, barn structure issues, animal evaluation and transport issues. We are having so much fun introducing visitors to our alpacas! We provide treats to feed the alpacas offering an up close experience with these gentle creatures. We answer questions and educate visitors about alpacas and their elite fiber.
Our Farm Store offers yarn and other items made from the alpacas here on our farm. We also stock items made by other alpaca farms such as felted shoe inserts, handmade felted soaps and all natural lotions.
