This is a Working Alpaca Farm, Visiting is by prior scheduled appointment only.
Sweet Clover Alpaca is a small family farm in Central Arkansas and has been in operation since July 2008. This is a completely hands-on operation since it's beginning. The barns were built out of used wooden fence panels and the acreage was fenced with no-climb fencing and a solar electric barrier. I employ Livestock Guardian Dogs to protect against predators. I know my animals intimately. Being a full service farm, I do my own farm management (nutrition, breeding decisions, minor medical, shots, trimming toenails, etc.).
Since July 2008 I have worked hard to upgrade my herd with every breeding, striving to add the best genetics to this American alpaca herd. I breed for Fine Fleece, Solid Conformation and Gentle Disposition.
I raise a show/breedstock alpaca herd. I participate in the AOA national show system for alpaca on Halter, Full Fleece and Fiber Arts. I have done well up against some big-name farm's competition, with the ribbons adorning my living room wall.
Mentorship is very important when you are looking into Alpaca ownership. When you purchase alpaca from my farm, I will do my best to teach you everything you need to know to take care of your investment, your alpaca. I will be available to you for questions, emergencies or just a burning curiosity. If I don't know the answer, I will use all my resources to find the answer. I would be very happy to show you how to do it all. I have learned from some of the best how to mentor the new Alpaca owner. After the sale, it's the service that counts!
I have an annual shearing event where I bring in a professional shearer and shear the whole herd in a half day. Any farm that I mentor is welcome to share in the farm set up costs and bring their alpaca or llama to the annual shearing event. We work together to make shearing easy and profitable while bringing in the annual harvest.
I would love to show you why I love Alpaca and Alpaca farming. These ethereal animals are gentle enough for a first-time farmer to handle by herself!
The great majority of the Alpaca here are in the Royal Baby or Baby Alpaca Fleece category. At the moment I have many colors of very clean Alpaca fleece for sale as well.
This is a BVDV Negative Farm. All the animals have been tested and are Negative for BVDV.
I do have farm visitors come see the alpaca. This is working farm, so you come at your own risk. These visits are scheduled in at least a week in advance and are only available on the weekend days (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Please email or call after 6pm to schedule yours.
