There are two types of alpaca the Huacaya that originate from the Andes Mountains and the Suri from the plains of North America. Here at South Paddocks we only have Huacaya alpacas and have a mixture of breeding and non breeding animals in our herd. All our Alpacas are sheared once a year and their beautiful fibre we make into products to sale from the farm and sell fibre direct to spinners to process into yarn. Alpaca fibre is unlike sheep wool in that its hypoallergenic, lanolin free, stronger, softer, warmer and retains less water. We offer walking and meet and greet experiences with our friendly alpacas here at South Paddocks.


We are members of the BAS (British Alpaca Society) and all our breeding females are BAS registered. We have breeding stock for sale and non-breeding pet/fibre only stock for sale. 
Alpacas make great pets if you have the correct housing and space for them. They make excellent poultry and livestock guards as they are herd animals and are immensely alert, protective and affectionate.

We offer alpaca walking experiences around the farms 12 acres, take in the views of the Winterbourne Valley, walk through our orchard and see all the other animals here at South Paddocks.
We offer alpaca meet and greet experiences for those that don't want to or unable to go on a walk, involving an alpaca learning session, followed by interacting and feeding the alpacas.
