Jenny and Martyn Ellwood-Wade farm about 100 huacaya alpacas on a farrm overlooking the Hunua Ranges, close to Clevedon and half an hour from Auckland airport. Our main focus is in breeding a line of fine, soft handling and lustrous true (blue) black alpacas. We welcome export enquiries.
We do have some other colours bred both for their fibre and for use in our black breeding programme. We offer a full support alpaca sales service, Cuesta Care, in our local area. Alpacas are the perfect animals for the lifestyle block owner but we warn you they are addictive!
