Why Invest in Alpacas?

Alpacas are great fun to raise and offer many financial benefits towards retirement or as a full-time business. Here are a few of the many possible benefits from investing in alpacas.

  • Instead of risking your money in the stock market, actually watch your investment grow each year with the arrival of new alpaca babies.
  • There are many tax benefits for your alpaca purchases. Enjoy tax write-offs and depreciation on purchases plus enjoy the wonderful lifestyle of raising alpacas.
  • Both female and male alpacas are important to alpaca breeders. Females produce babies once a year increasing your herd size or providing alpacas to sell. Males can generate income from breeding fees. For the best return on your investment, start with the highest quality alpacas possible.
  • Choosing a good foundation herd is important because it will bring you income for the future. Let us provide you with expert guidance on your initial alpaca selections.
  • You can generate additional income from boarding, products, fleece, marketing and transportation. The possibilities are endless in this market!
