Reflections From The Farm . . . . .

Sometimes things that occur each day just make you notice and "see" it a bit differently. Walking through the barn this morning and just going about the everyday activities I actually took the time to appreciate that all of the alpacas were cushed closely together and of course in my way. While making numerous trips winding my way through the herd again and again, choosing my steps carefully so I did not step on any animals I really appreciated that even the most flighty in the herd did not move a muscle when I intruded. Today I need to acknowledge and thank the herd for they have taught me so much; their behavior this morning is an affirmation of sorts that I am on the right track with my little farm. Some folks are just naturals when it comes to being with/around livestock; I do not consider myself gifted with that talent. The animals here trust Les and I and that makes all of the hard work that happens here worth the time and effort. (Written on a warm July morning)

Northern Prairie Alpacas is a small farm that started out in east/central North Dakota and relocated to Missouri in June 2011 so we could get closer to family. Our size allows us the opportunity to provide each alpaca with individual attention and handling on a regular basis. The breeding goals on the farm are set with a focus on quality fiber and sound conformational traits.

We have benefited greatly from the knowledge and expertise generously shared by other alpaca breeders. We are motivated to continue that trend by passing on the things we have learned.

Our Priorities

•Making the health and well-being of each alpaca first and foremost
•Commitment to honesty and integrity in all of our business transactions
•Providing outstanding support to each of our customers
•Continuing education regarding alpacas for ourselves as well as our customers

It is our pleasure to own and operate Northern Prairie Alpacas, LLC on a full time basis. We have good bloodlines within our herd and the alpacas here are healthy, friendly and well adjusted.
