Encore Alpacas was born out of a desire to breed friendly alpacas, without compromising on quality. We scoured the UK in search of the friendliest animals and eventually found what we were looking for! We pride ourselves on the friendliness of our herd, they all happily come over for a cwtch and to feed from the hand.
No visit is ever short with this lovely natured bunch, they all love a neck scratch and have been known to form a somewhat orderly queue for a turn.
Now that our cria have been weaned from their mums for a few weeks, we have now begun one of favourite jobs, halter training and handling. Some alpacas get it first time, others are more stubborn. However, Dexter decided to stop training in a different way, and that was to rest his head on my knee and look cute.
2022 has been our busiest year yet expanding our herd with 8 cria born on our farm all fit, healthy and cute. 6 of these have already been reserved for new homes at the beginning of 2023.
We have started 2023 with the purchase of 4 new breeding females to increase our herd further. The new additions have settled in very well and are just as friendly as the existing herd. We are excited to see what this summer will bring us with 16 expected births, it really will be our busiest year yet. Keep checking our social media to see updates and regular pictures of all the herd throughout the year.
