Popham Alpacas - the home of Pure Cornish Alpaca

How can we help?

We started with alpacas in 2002 after we sold our ponies. We didn't know much but over the intervening years we have learn't a great deal. We have been very successful in the show rings and in recent years have won Supreme at the Nationals in both Huacaya and Suri. So you could say we know our "chilli" from our "beans". But not only have we learn't how to improve quality through selective breeding but have also gained an extensive amount of knowledge about alpaca care. 

Not everyone has the time or the confidence especially when new to alpacas to carry out the routine husbandry tasks alpacas need.
