In the early spring of 2007, I became acquainted with the world of alpacas through a chance remark from a colleague who mentioned that you can keep alpacas for life! I liked that. So at the same time, I had an opportunity to buy some family land in Maine. This combination of facts resulted in a whole new adventure and the birth of the OutBaca Alpaca. Having spent years as an educator, I had fun learning about alpaca, the life style, and the benefits. I now had a way to get back to working the land and experiencing nature around the clock! I started out with one bred female, then four geldings, then a junior herd sire, then two bred females and I now have fifteen alpaca.
The rolling fields of the farm offer a picturesque setting for a growing herd. My breeding decisions are aimed at literally producing the finest fiber in the area. I started by breeding my females to a male of great Canadian descent. (Comanche, champion Canadian National Futurity) This Canadian influence has produced three cria with gorgeous crimp. In addition, the girls on the farm have bloodlines from the best of sires including Ante Plano. This combination of heritages has proven to lay the groundwork for a foundation herd that is creating quality stock and improving on the wonderful pedigrees in place.
The farm consists of an old country house, a guest house for visitors, two barns, four sheds, flower gardens, five cats, a flock of chickens, two great Pyrenees and brilliant roosters. I whole heartedly welcome visitors and thank you for taking a moment to become acquainted with OutBaca Alpaca Farm. You will not only learn more about alpaca and the individual animals when you visit but, as a guest, you will experience the taste of country life including blueberries, cherries, plums, pears, and apples.
