Truleen Downs Alpaca Stud Farm
Truleen Downs is a delightfully unique blend of a working alpaca farm, farm visits and supplier of alpaca products.
Fibre of the Gods
Alpaca are of South American origin, are members of the Camelid family, and are related to the llama. Alpacas have been domesticated for over 5000 years, and were used by the Incans for food, fuel, clothing, and religious ceremonies.
Alpacas are ideal for small or large farms, are easy to care for with drenching, foot trimming and vaccination.
Alpacas have a long life span of around 20 years and are productive for most of those years.
Alpacas are bred for their incredibly soft wool that is much stronger than merino wool, much lighter, with excellent thermal qualities and have an extensive range of beautiful colours. Truleen Downs have a wide range of alpacas for sale so why not give us a call to arrange a visit to our farm.
