The following are links to some of our favorite alpaca websites- particularly for someone considering alpaca investment. Odds are if you found this website you're an astute web surfer. In the event you're new to the internet, simply click on any underlined word below to go to that website. To return to this links page, simply click "Back" on your browser toolbar.

The national organization of alpaca breeders is AOBA or the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association. Their website has a wealth of information for prospective breeders including a short history of alpacas, their investment qualities, capital requirements, hands-on ownership vs. agistment (boarding), a calender of upcoming events among many other topics. You'll also find a national breeder directory- very valuable if you intend to visit a variety of breeders to help make the decision to invest or not.

The New England regional affiliate of AOBA is NEAOBA .

Here you'll find information specific to the New England region such as a regional breeders directory, a list (many with pictures!) of alpacas for sale by NEAOBA members and many more useful links.

When we began the research process, we found the websites of many indivdual breeders extremely useful. For those of you in the New England area, the following are links to several farms we respect as quality breeders and who have been invaluable to us:

Mirage Alpacas doesn't currently have a website, but Audrey and Bill Rhoades are quality people who bring the benefit of over 30 years of prior livestock experience (sheep) to the alpaca industry. Their perspective is quite different than most breeders due to this background- and their honesty and willingness to help is refreshing. They can be reached via e-mail at miragealpacas@conknet.com.

Bruce and Lori Henry of Wilpaca Farm were also instrumental in our learning process. Located in Wilton, New Hampshire, they are a smaller breeder with excellence at heart. Their website is also highly informative and well worth a visit.

Chase Tavern Farm Alpacas in southern Maine is another fine breeder with a wonderful mix of Australian, Bolivian, Chilean and Peruvian alpacas. Among many useful pages is an in-depth look at how they came to make alpacas a way of life.

Last (but by no means least), is Skyeview Alpacas in Elkins New Hampshire. Sue & Jim King were also extremely helpful to us. Sue is a spinner and weaver and is a valuable source of information regarding alpaca fiber. They can be reached via e-mail at jking@kear.tdsnet.com
