Outstanding Genetics. Data-Driven Breeding Decisions. Stellar Results.
The sight of a full fleeced Suri running in the field is simply breathtaking. They are living art. A shawl, scarf or dress made from that Suri’s fleece is stunning – the drape and feel are exquisite.
We fell in love with these Suri alpacas, and today we own a farm of around 180 Suris. We are surrounded by the grace and beauty of Suri alpacas!
Visitors to our farm find beautiful animals with easy-going temperaments. Every color of the alpaca rainbow is present: from eye-catching silver gray to lustrous black, gorgeous fawns, and fabulous whites.
We make our breeding decisions carefully, using top stud males and females who have the characteristics to continue improvement of the Suri breed. We don't want to just breed. We want to improve. Every year.
We gather data from a variety of sources to help us determine who will breed and then we use that data to determine the best matches on our farm. Each year we have fiber samples analyzed from our animals to determine fineness, consistency, and comfort factor. We participate in and utilize the EPDs published by the Alpaca Owners Association to help make decisions concerning breeding and track the progeny of our animals as well. We do skin biopsies on our top animals to determine density of fiber. We use information from the Suri Network’s Suri Herd Improvement Program (SHIP) to identify strengths and weakness of each animal in both fiber and conformation.
Lastly, we show our animals at alpaca shows around the country to see how they stack up to other high-quality alpacas and to get feedback from professional alpaca judges.
In 2017 we were honored to receive the Judges Choice for both males and females at The Futurity. Argento's Moonlight of Harmony received first place, Color Championship, and then the Judges Choice award for females. Tikanui's Zen of Harmony received first place, Color Championship, and then Judges Choice for males. This recognition was thrilling!
We are committed to the alpaca industry and to helping the industry reach its full potential. As a seed stock producer, we specialize in helping new farms startup. We help people interested in raising Suris define their goals, select alpacas appropriate for their goals, and provide mentoring following the sale.
Our clients become our friends and their success is our success!
