Winter at Carrageen Alpacas and Alpacas for sale

Here in Maine we are experiencing one of the most brutal winters in a long time. Sub zero mornings make chores slower and not as much fun. However the alpacas are doing well. They are kept out of the wind gusts and have plenty of hay. We are looking forward to spring!
Our store is doing well. Socks seem o be the best selling item though gloves, scarves and hats are going fast also.
For those of you are looking to expand your herd with quality alpacas, please keep us in mind. We h read more...

Making it through the cold winter

No one needs to be reminded that it has been an unusually cold winter here in the northeast. We have had many days of sub-zero and single digit temperatures.
While alpacas generally do well in the cold, precautions need to be taken. Making sure that they have clean dry straw bedding, housing ( a barn or run-in shed) and a ready supply of hay and warm water will help them make it though this tough period.

Also we are busy fencing in our new property addition. We have added 10 acres but are only fencing in 2 right now. The rest will be done next Spring and early Summer.
We are also making plans for National Open Farm Days (Sept. 28 and 29). That should be a read more...

Two more Carrageen crias!

Ginesa one day old

Ginesa one day old

On August 7, 2013 we added 2 more cria to our herd. at 8:52 AM our Chipita gave birth to a beautiful white girl, Ginesa. Her grandfather (the great Crown Royale out of Sweetbriar Farm) was white so we think that his genes have come through in her. She just shines in the sun. Father Roth ( son of Crown Royale) hs done us proud.
At 12;20 our Jasmine gave birth to a stunning medium fawn boy, Allante. This guy weighed in at 20.2 and is a bundle of energy. He also was fathered by Roth and has ma read more...
