Log Cabin Farm Alpacas
Our Alpaca farm is located just below the crest of the green rolling hills of East Albany in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. (between Newport and St. Johnsbury). We are home to a small herd of densely fibered Huacaya Alpacas which we raise to sell. We will finance to qualified buyers and provide help and support to new buyers as well. Our alpacas are for sale and we also offer breeding services to our studs. We pride ourselves that our small northeastern Vermont farm carries some of the “Big Farm’s” very best genetics including; Black Peruvian Royal Forest, Peruvian Hemingway, Snowmass Royal Rose, Peruvian Bueno, Peruvian Dakotia, Quetzal, Peruvian Equador, Peruvian Timoteo, Peruvian Caligula, and Peruvian Accoyo Titan to name a few.
We show select animals at various AOBA (The Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association) sanctioned events throughout the year in an effort to validate our breeding decisions.
The main reason for the worldwide Alpaca craze, is the fiber, (fleece) that is harvested each year in the spring, before warm weather sets in. Each animal will produce five to eight pounds of this fleece a year. Alpaca fleece is a silky natural fiber that is soft, durable, and luxurious. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin which makes it hypoallergenic. Alpaca fiber is also naturally water-repellent. Huacaya alpacas grow extremely soft fiber which has natural crimp, thus making it a naturally elastic yarn, perfect for knits. (Suri has far less crimp and thus is best suited for woven goods, but is wonderfully luxurious as well). Alpaca fleece is made into various products, from very simple and inexpensive garments made by the aboriginal communities and home based artisans to sophisticated, industrially made and ultra expensive products such as men's suits and women's high fashion garments from the finest designers of Milan and Paris. We sell alpaca fleece, yarn, and hand knit items on our website and at the farm.
