Alpaca For Sale

 

 Alpaca for sale. Rated 5* (five star highest) in our Defra Animal Welfare licence from the Cotswold District Council, we breed for quality fibre, conformation, temperament and colour. We have been breeding Alpaca since 2008; over a decade and at Kensmyth Alpaca Farm Stud here in the Cotswolds Water Parks, every Alpaca and every customer counts. Alpaca Fibre, Alpaca Therapy, Alpaca Walking, Alpaca Genetics, Alpaca breeding – we will help you.

 All of our Alpaca are microchipped, most are also ear tagged (some exceptions) and registered with the British Alpaca Society with whom we have been members since 2008. Ear tags are a choice from the Alpaca Farm to do nor not as they often get caught in fencing – at Kensmyth Alpaca Farm we do not routinely Ear tag but always microchip.

We do not only “show what we want to sell” and are happy to show Alpaca of varying standards and prices.

One of our original Stud Boys is homebred Kensmyth Bequest. His father is Cambridge Navigator (mated in 2010 to one of our girls with the original owner breeder) who sold to a different UK breeder for £75,000.00. With Peruvian Spartacus in the background… Australian genetics at their best.

We also have a Champion award winning stud male Alpaca who is Grey – the most highly sought after colour in Alpaca today.

Kensmyth are a totally closed, biosecure herd. This means we do not take outside matings from other Alpaca males, we do not show our Alpaca at shows and we do not Agist outside purchases.

We always have Alpaca of varying ages for sale and to suit most budgets. Remember you get what you pay for – if you are looking for breeding genetics in Alpaca likely to excel – call Kensmyth. Some our Foundation females stem from National Championship lines and have bred winners themselves.

We are often asked for Flock guards – please note that not all Alpaca will have the guarding instinct just as not all Alpaca will walk  – it is down to their handling and treatment.
