The grass in the “next paddock” is greener

Friday, June 10th, 2011

This winter, for the first time, we are moving a number of our alpacas off farm.  Because most of our paddocks only get short breaks from grazing, this year we are keen to give the land a rest and winter is the ideal time to do this as the spring/summer/autumn breeding activity comes to a halt.  While pasture growth is slower in winter than in other seasons, the opportunity to lie fallow for a while helps the land to rejuvenate.  No doubt the alpacas will enjoy the change of scenery  and the fresh, green grass of their holiday home. Our alpacas for sale will remain with us to make it easy for you to make your purchases,  so do call us if you would like to take that big step into alpaca ownership. You won’t regret it!
