It has been said that alpacas are the world's "finest" livestock investment.
Here at Island Alpaca Farm, it is our goal to breed and sell healthy alpaca of superior fiber quality, conformation and disposition in a variety of colors and of top genetic lines. At the same time, we continue to promote the awareness and development of a alpaca as a viable domestic textile industry, the benefits of breeding and owning alpaca as an investment, or simply as pets!
Learn all you need to know about alpaca farming and alpaca investing at our farm!
Island Alpaca Farm is located in Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineyard. We offer alpaca breeding, alpaca sales, year-round, or winter alpaca boarding (agisting), educational workshops for both children and adults, and continuing customer support. Island Alpaca Farm is perfectly sized to offer personalized service and attention, along with a fine selection of breeding stock, both herd sires and junior herd sires as well as pet/fiber quality alpaca.
