They are living their dream. In 2009, realtor Kristi, and IT consultant Robert, bought a 10-acre farm just south of Belwood to raise alpacas.

They started with four. Now they have 13, each with a distinctive name, like Grande Latte, or Silver Lining. They hope to have another four babies to name this year. And they’re loving it.

That’s because alpacas are gentle, inquisitive animals, along with being low-maintenance and gentle on the land. But one of the big reasons they went into raising alpacas is because the fibre they produce is the warmest and softest around, superior to wool. It’s stronger and more resilient. It’s also hypo-allergenic, contains no lanolin, and comes in 22 natural colours that range from pure white to pure black. That makes it perfect for a variety of products, from yarn to socks and fine clothing, as well as duvets and other felted goods.

On the farm is a large store where you can check out all the great alpaca products along with delicious, fresh free-range eggs and free-run chicken raised right on the farm. Kristi and Robert are adamant about supporting local farming and local entrepreneurs, and have as much of their fibre processed locally as possible. They also carry a variety of locally produced food and gifts such as soap, candles, honey, coffee, chips and more. A fun day for everyone!
