For over 15 years Heronwood Farm of Upperville, Virginia has been home to outstanding Thoroughbred Horses. The idea of raising alpacas was spawned by the Farm's desire to diversify their livestock holdings. Heronwood wanted to include an animal that would be profitable and fun for all family members to raise. The ease of care and aesthetic beauty, coupled with the investment return potential made the decision easy when it came time for Heronwood Farm to invest in ALPACAS.
Our investment in alpacas began in March 2000. The colorful herd of huacaya alpacas have diversified bloodlines originating from Bolivia, Chile and Peru. The foundation females were specifically selected for our breeding program based on the merits of fine fiber quality, quantity, superior conformation, excellent genetics and vibrant colors. These characteristics are vital to producing desirable offspring for breeding, sale and show ring success.
