We are located in Lyndeborough New Hampshire, a small town just 20 minutes from Nashua and a little more than an hour from Boston. Our farm consists of 40 acres adjacent to over 250 acres of conservation land. The name comes from a locally famous waterfall that has many hiking trails, some starting just a short walking distance from our farm.
Purgatory Falls Alpaca Farm is a working farm that raises alpacas but also has a Morgan horse and a hunting Mule, two Llamas and two Guanacos. We are also in the hay business, and raise, sell and deliver quality first- and second-cut hay grown specifically for alpacas, goats, sheep and horses. Our farm has been in business since 2004 and has grown from 6 to over 120 quality Huacaya and Suri alpacas. However, due to our age, we are slowly cutting back and now only have about 80 animals living here. Thanks to Nancy from Brookhollow Alpacas we may now boast to owning several Snowmass animals and dozens of high-quality animals with Snowmass bloodlines.
We pride ourselves on doing everything ourselves from giving shots, grinding teeth, trimming toe nails and maintaining good animal health to clearing space for pasture, pasture maintenance, fencing and composting. We have an on-site fecal testing lab and test our animals as well as other farm's animals for parasites and other problems.
I must admit that we laugh at the concept of the alpaca life style but do enjoy what we do and the animals we care for. Life on the farm is not all cuddly animals and "Hallmark" moments but if you are interested in getting into alpaca farming, come visit us, see our operation and talk to us about what we can do to help you get started. We have helped many people get started and are more than happy to supply references and testimonials. If you already have a farm, maybe we can help you with the planning and implementation of new fields or pastures, fencing or other projects. We have the equipment and the know-how and are willing to share what works for us with others.
There are hundreds of websites that are willing to tell you how things should be done in the alpaca business, but we understand that what might work for us, may not work you. As a result of that we are willing to go to your farm and see what your needs might be, then help you to form, develop and act on your ideas and goals.
