We have an exceptional herd of suri alpacas at Big Meadow Creek Alpacas in Troy, IdahoWe treat the alpacas at BMCA with love and respect from the day they are born, so they are healthy and easy to handle. We welcome visitors of all ages.
Visitors--individuals or small groups--are welcome to come to the farm and learn about alpacas and their fiber. Please call to make an appointment.
Visitors get a chance to feed the alpacas. Of course, after they are fed, they might follow you down the driveway! That's not an alpaca, but Katherine the llama, on the left of the picture. She likes attention, too!
Our shearer, Joe McCummins, comes down from Deer Park. He does a fabulous job--quick, kind to the alpacas, and best of all, few second cuts.
We welcome visitors on shearing day to watch the alpacas go from "fat" to "thin," and to touch the soft, silky fiber. You can help, if you so choose. I serve a hearty lunch and visitors are welcome to partake!
Take some time to learn more about alpacas by browsing through this website..
Visit my Blog to read about alpacas, knitting, and daily life on the farm.
Sign up to be notified when we have a new baby (cria) on the ground or to learn about visiting us on shearing day.
If you see an alpaca you like, you can ask to reserve its fiber.
Please contact me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you!
You might even get a chance to hold a cria, like my friend's sister, Barb. We're expecting one cria this year from maiden BMCA Jenna.
