Alpacas Devon

The alpaca is a species of South American camelid originally from Peru, Chile and Bolivia. Often confused with the Llama, the alpaca is smaller.
The alpaca is kept primarily as a fleece producing animal with meat as a secondary product. There are two types of alpaca, the huacaya and the suri.
At Moorparks we have huacaya alpacas, they are pets and will NOT go for meat! We have to shear the boys each year (we get someone in for that), trim their toenails every two months and give vitamins over the winter. Apart from that they are easy to keep. We use the boys as flock guards during lambing time to keep foxes away.

Come and enjoy a holiday in Devon with alpacas.
