Alpacas are gentle and curious animals known for their soft, luxurious fiber and the products that can be made from it. Our farm focuses on continual improvement in our herd's fiber quality and sweet temperament through our breeding program. The end result is in the variety of high-quality products for you to add to your wardrobe and home.
All of the products we make by hand are available to purchase in our online shop along with select items made in Peru from Peruvian Link and Classic Alpaca. Schedule a farm tour for an opportunity to meet our alpacas and learn more about these gentle creatures and their sustainable lifestyle. Leave with a smile on your face!
Meet Joe and Sandy. In 2014, they acquired a home in Southern New Hampshire that included a barn and fenced-in pasture.
Being life-long animal lovers and Joe's experience working on a dairy farm early in his career with assorted livestock, they decided living with animals on their property was the right next step. The adventure began with two wonderful alpacas, Tauri and Fiona, and Granite State Alpacas was born! Herd growth, farm development, and their shop of handmade alpaca products continue to evolve and expand each year since.
The alpacas are all sweet-natured with individual personalities ranging from quiet and shy to downright silly and playful. They are very smart, trainable, help keep the pasture grass trimmed, trees pruned, and in return, provide an annual supply of soft fiber that is processed into high-quality skeins of yarn, laundry dryer balls, hats, scarves, and other products handmade on the farm and direct from Peru.
