Nic Cooper
Nic purchased his first two alpacas when they first came to New Zealand, in 1989. It made an amazing change to his lifestyle !  He moved from town to a rural farm, and became an alpaca breeder. Nic is an experienced judge for alpacas and for alpaca fibre.

With selective importation of top elite genetics, the herd has grown and the constant stream of championship ribbons at Shows, in New Zealand and in Europe, is testimony to Nic's eye for selection of a quality alpaca.

Linda Blake
Linda is an alpaca neo-natal specialist and one amazing result is Don, an alpaca born by a successful caesarian operation on the farm. He greets all the tour groups, and is already a veteran of stage shows, TV and commercials. He is now one of our wether pets.

Linda is also an adult educator, and education - via the net and practical workshops - features in their service.

Linda. Neo-natal expert.

Improved top genetics
Nic and Linda work in with their network of customers to continue to improve the quality of the alpacas in New Zealand. And now in Europe and Asia as well.

The investment in top genetics in top stud Alpine Fiber's Brutus, the first alpaca imported from the USA, has shown its worth with progeny winning an amazing number of championships in the show ring. His progeny in Europe are also winning championships at shows.
