Here at Charnwood Forest Alpacas, we have helped countless prospective alpacas owners across the country find the perfect group of animals to start their herd. We have a wide range of quality alpacas that are perfect for all purposes, be it as a fleece producer, as part of a breeding programme that you want to set up, or just to have on your land as a pet! We’re incredibly passionate about furthering the species in the UK, where we are known for producing award-winning alpacas and an exceptionally high-quality breeding programme.

If you’ve never bought alpacas before, there are a lot of things to take into consideration, and a lot of technical, industry-specific terminology that is used. If you’ve purchased livestock before, you may be familiar with a lot of this terminology, however, there will always be alpaca-specific considerations and concerns that alpaca owners should be aware of. In this guide, we thought we’d break things down in a super simple and easy to understand way so that, by the end of it, you’ll be armed with everything you need to know about buying these animals.

For over a decade, Chris and our team here at Charnwood Forest Alpacas have been offering excellent male and female alpacas for sale to members of the public. So, if you already know a little about these animals, and understand the long-term commitment and costs involved, then be sure to get in touch with our team to discuss the male and female alpacas that we currently have for sale. We look forward to chatting with you about your circumstances, creating a package that works for you, and ensuring the animals you buy are happy, well looked after, and suitable for their intended purpose.
