Alpaca Encounters

We have recently started raising a small herd of alpacas here at Jireh Hills. Although we are still learning about this unique and adaptable species, we have garnered enough trust from these shy and curious wooly “friends” to welcome visitors to handle and enjoy them with us!

In 2020, we welcomed “little Pearl” to our homestead, and we hope to experience the birth of more cria here in the years ahead.  That same year, “Bear” joined our herd and is simply the friendliest and fluffiest boy that loves interacting with everyone!  While you’re here, you and your group will also walk and visit with Kira, Shekira and the friendly boys, Rainger and Patchie.

Alpacas are sheared annually, and if you are interested in joining us for that, please contact us in early spring to sign up. We will likely post a sign-up on our Facebook / Instagram Page during that time. There’s always a job for everyone to do!

If you are interested in purchasing some raw (untreated) alpaca wool that can be used for various crafts, bird nests, etc. it is available (while it lasts). You can add it to your CART, or if you forget, please ask us while you visit.

Alpacas also provide us with rich, ready-to-use dry manure that adds a wonderful component of nutrients to our AERATED COMPOST SYSTEM.
