Check out our alpacas

In the beginning

there were two of us.  We were living in California while missing the big city of Chicago. Future Farm Hand (FFH-my hubby) was spending a sleepless night watching infomercials.  He happened to catch the "I Love Alpacas" campaign and decided that alpaca farming was what he was meant to do.  I guess I have a lack of  sci-fi movies that night for my current life path.  After the thought "crazy" wore off, I, being my typical pragmatic self, told him to research the business side and get back to me. This never happened.

Fast forward to 2008.  Now there are four of us living in Chicago and missing the wonders of California.  I am raising two boys, working full time, going to grad school and teaching yoga on the weekends.  Suddlenly, the idea of an alpaca farm doesn't seem so crazy.  We visited a few farms and then jumped right in with the purchase of two suri females-one maiden and one bred.  We are on the road to our alpaca future! 

Present day, we are still living in the city and agisting our alpacas.  Like many, we bought our house at the top of the housing market.  So...we wait...not so patiently for the right time and the right farm to continue our dream. 

I figure an outlet for our highs and lows would be therapeutic for me and hopefully entertaining for you.  Welcome!

  1. How very exciting. I was where you are a couple of years ago. We just bought and moved to our own farm last fall. What a wonderous journey.
