Welcome to Alpacas in Harmony
We are so excited to be a part of the alpaca community and this wonderful lifestyle. We investigated this business for about a year before we made our first purchase in January 2008. We spent countless hours on the internet and visited numerous farms to make sure this was right for us. We soon discovered that there was a farm located about 2 minutes down the road from where we were vacationing. Once we met the alpacas in person there was no denying that this would be the future life for us.
We purchased two pregnant females and a young male that we planned to show that year. We spent the next several years learning as much as possible about these beautiful animals. We started out agisting (boarding) our alpacas while the herd grows so we can take our time finding the right property to create a healthy and natural setting for our alpacas.
We are breeding show quality alpacas working towards improving their fiber and conformation so that each generation is finer, more dense and has better bone structure than the last. We are breeding our females to the highest quality Herd Sires possible. So far our breeding program is heading in the right direction. See our Alpaca Page for more detail.
Our farm located in Cochecton is in the West Central part of Sullivan County New York. The Town of Cochecton (it’s official name) is situated on the Delaware River directly across from Damascus Pennsylvania to which a bridge over the river provides access. We are literally 3 miles from PA.
Before we bought our farm we agisted (boarded) our alpacas on the farm from which we purchased in the next town over. Agisting really is a great way to get started in this business and not have to completely change your lifestyle. It’s like getting the best of both worlds!
While you're here check out our new Alpacabooks (alpaca pocketbooks/purses) handmade from our own alpaca fiber. Original designs by Fiber Artist Janet Verlezza. We just opened our farm store and we have many other products we are selling including some adorable hand knitted toys and beautiful baby clothes made by Fiber Artist Felicia Ludwig.
