The alpaca farm

A question we often hear "can alpacas survive in Germany"? The answer is, very much. Alpacas are extremely adaptable and robust animals. Due to their origin in the high Andes of South America, they can find their way very well in our temperate latitudes.


On the alpaca pastures, our animals can seek out various protection options. In our latitudes, alpacas need a dry surface and a roof that protects against wind and rain.

The native grass is very sparse and poor in nutrients, so the pasture grass should not be too fatty when kept. In addition, our animals have roughage on offer all year round. Depending on the stage of breeding, a mare receives 100-200g pallets a day to cover her selenium requirements.

In summer our alpacas like to visit our watering hole to cool off. They also love to stand under the sprinkler.


Alpacas are native to the Andean region in Peru - there they live at an altitude of over 3,000 meters. Our alpacas like to go to the highest point of their pasture to look out over the valley.

Our alpaca herd with 32 animals is sheared annually in early summer. The fleece is sold in cooperation with the alpaca marketing cooperative in Austria, which is committed to the sustainable production of clothing, bedding and the like.
