About us

1998 saw friends Anne Bean and Barbara Linley purchase two female Huacaya. However, after the acquisition of two Suri females shortly thereafter, the emphasis has been on breeding these magnificent animals.

Anne left the partnership in 2010 due to increased family commitments, and after his initial reservation David has become a convert to alpacas and wholeheartedly supports Barbara in their alpaca venture.
