In the summer of 2021, our son, Adam, completed an alpaca shearing course under the expert tuition of Bob Shaw. As well as that being useful around our farm, Adam can also shear small groups of Alpacas in and around South Wales. Contact us if you'd like to be added to his list for 2024.

As established, experienced and trusted alpaca breeders, demand for our alpacas is high, with our waiting list increasing every year and people reserving alpacas twelve months or more ahead. In order to satisfy this demand, we have recruited a number of Associate Breeders and we are delighted to offer their alpacas for sale alongside our own. With a combined herd of over 250 alpacas, we have the largest selection of Alpacas in Wales. We are looking forward to around 80 cria births in 2023, so we're ideally placed to supply alpacas to customers old and new. We offer prospective owners the chance to register their interest in order to avoid being disappointed. We do this on a first come, first served basis, so if you'd like to secure some stock from us, drop us an email and like our Facebook page to be first to see pictures of the cria as they hit the ground. Make us your first stop for everything alpaca – you'll be glad you did.

Our friends Kevin and Alice own Hush Hush Glamping, which is well worth a look if you're after breath-taking views and a restful getaway. They have alpacas too!

Mike and Rachael Harris own and run Waen Y Coed, a delightful rural holiday retreat, comprising the Mouse House and Alpaca Cabana. We were pleased to supply the alpacas for their guests to enjoy. Please check them out if you're looking for a peaceful break.

Would you like to increase your knowledge of alpacas? Why not enrol on one of our one day courses? We can offer Getting started with Alpacas and Quit the Rat Race - A guide to becoming a Smallholder. All our courses are £95 per person (£175 per couple) and are delivered in small groups. Contact us to find out more.

We let a local alpaca knitwear business, Little Penny Boutique, have some of our fleece a few years back and they have turned it into a fabulous range of ladies' accessories, all 100% made in Wales. They're worth checking out if you like the luxury of alpaca knitwear, or if you're looking for an original, hand crafted gift for someone special.

In a UK first, Amazing Alpacas have worked with our Local Authority to commission an Alpaca Crossing roadsign. To find out why the alpacas crossed the road, check out this ITV Wales news report.

Resistance to wormers, used to treat internal parasites in livestock, is becoming a problem within the farming sector. The days when you could routinely dose all your animals with a worming product, to offer herd wide protection, are long gone. These days, forward thinking farmers, like us, are using parasite screening to identify if any animals are affected and then treating each one individually, if necessary.

Alpaca shearingWe manage to get most of our shearing done in mid-May, except for a few heavily pregnant females, who we finish off in June once they've birthed.

We also shear around 20 alpacas on our client day. It is nice to catch up with some old friends and, of course, see their alpacas again. I can still remember them as cria - my how they've grown!
