Spruce Ridge Farm is forty-eight acres of rolling hills and beautiful woodlands.  Guinea fowl and chickens range freely through the fields creating humorous interplay with the alpacas while also providing control of ticks, slugs and weed seeds.  We have fourteen acres of secure, fenced paddocks around the barn that allows us to rotate the alpacas through seven different fields, providing the animals with adequate space and plenty of fresh grass to enjoy.  

In the summer evenings, as the sun goes down,  the crias have a ritual of running (actually leaping!) through the fields.  It is a joy to watch - life doesn't get much better than this!

Beyond Alpacas

Over the years, we've added other creatures to the farm. Chickens and Guinea fowl arrived early on. Black Angus cattle first arrived in the spring of 2005, and pigs in 2010. Currently we are breeding a cross of heritage breeds including the Tamworth, Berkshire, and Gloucestershire Old Spot. We love these animals and feel fortunate to enjoy so much food produced here on the farm. We also sell quarters of beef, and sides of pork. All pasture-raised with about an acre of grass per steer. No antibiotics or hormones. Grass-fed beef has higher levels of Omega3's, so it's just plain better for you. And grass-fed beef releases less methane into the environment, so it's good for the planet. We're proud supporters of buying and eating locally produced food.

Agistment (Boarding)

Have you fallen in love with the animals but do not have the time, available land or financial resources to own a herd right now? You should consider agistment. You can purchase an animal from us and board it on our property with our alpacas. Raising animals is our full-time job, not a side business. Agistment allows you to own an animal now and start growing a herd until the day comes when you can have your own farm.  With any purchase from us, we offer free agistment for three months.
