Hollyhock Farm Alpacas
My husband and I brought our first alpacas home in 2002 - 2 pregnant females. Since then we have had many babies (called crias) born on our little farm. We owned un-related males, but all our other alpacas are the offspring of those first 2 females.
In 2006, I left the corporate world to work full time in the alpaca business. Besides breeding and raising the animals, I work with their wonderful fiber. We shear the alpacas every spring - even in Minnesota they would be way too hot in the summer if they were not shorn annually.
In 2015, our business changed again. With a geographical move off the farm, we decided to expand the creative side of the business. With the addition of a needle felting machine, we are adding needle felted products to our line of hand-made items. At the same time, we have decided to purchase fiber rather than raise our own, giving us more time to concentrate on the creative aspects of fiber production.
