We began our journey as alpaca owners the day I drove the school bus on a kindergarten field trip to a local alpaca farm in May of 2002. We are located in Western New York in Allegany County only a couple miles from Houghton College and Letchworth State Park. This early meeting turned out to be the start of our journey that developed into our own farm - Ruebarb Alpacas in NY.
Having worked out how we could share in the alpaca lifestyle, we are always happy to help others to achieve their own dream and start their alpaca adventure.
We enjoy farm visits and we are always happy to share the story of how we managed to buy our own farm and foundation herd, and encourage others to do the same. This is a wonderful industry and, as well as having the potential of providing a good living, you can participate in the many shows, conferences and seminars hosted within the community.
We purchased an addition 82 acres of land surrounding our farm last November, so we are busy fencing in more pasture at the present time. With nearly a hundred acres now, we have plenty of room for growth!
We are always willing to work with buyers on pricing and we can also offer on-farm financing - along with continuing support. As you learn more about the business, you will realize that who you buy from is at least as important as what you buy. Particularly in the early days when you get your alpacas home. However well you have prepared for this time, there are going to be lots of things that crop up that you haven't thought about. Knowing that help is available at all times is a great comfort!
If you are ready to take the next step on your own journey, please join us for a visit - we'd love to see you here!
