We are a family with three kids aged 1,5, 4 and almost 7 yeras old and have started to passionately breed alpacas. Our vision is to turn the formerly farm property of our grandfathers into a self- sufficient living and working space and offer a great space to learn from each other. We love to be surrounded by like-minded people with a hands-on attitude who are comitted and serious. Drugs of any kind are not welcome.
Even though a helping hand with animal care ist greatly appreciated this is not a day filling task since alpacas are by nature quite undemanding animals that most time of the day graze on the pasture land :)
