About Us

We live and work off our farm, running a small engineering practice. Having raised our four daughters we have more time to spend on the farm. Although our farm is small just over six acres we use every bit of it. We have about 25 alpacas, 40 heritage chickens and veggie gardens done in the permaculture method. What can I say except life is good and we love what we do, some days more than others but on the hole it is the lifestyle we want.

With over a decade in the industry we have experienced many things from difficult times to good times and wouldn’t change a thing. As they say, ” What doesn’t brake you makes you stronger.” We still get just as excited about the alpacas and are even more determined to make a success of our little farm.

We have learn about their fibre, breeding, bloodlines and most of the health issues. We have travels as far as Peru to learn more about these wonderful critters. Attended every clinic and workshop we could from Toronto to Atlanta Georgia and even Los Vegas. Our goals have changed considerable since we first started and the order of importance has changes as well. On our farm you will find that personality is just as important to us along with their beautiful solid colored soft fleece with some of the finest bloodlines availalbe in in North America.

Locations and Area

One cannot go far in our valley with out running into the native influence in the form of art, sculpture or totem poles. Duncan is called “The city of Totems”. A local carver is making silver jewelry depicting the alpaca and has adopted alpacas into his life. There is also interest in making Cowichan Sweaters out of alpaca yarn. The fiber industry is especially important to our large native population, one of the largest communities in Canada. The Cowichan people are the creators of the Cowichan sweater, which is an important trade for many families here in the valley.
