Gold Star Alpacas– Rick and Jerra Anderson, Tillsonburg, Ontario

Lake Breeze Alpacas (email)  nestled on the east shore of Last Mountain Lake, is the centenial homestead of the Swanston family and the new alpaca farm of Sherry Mochinski.
“I purchased my first alpaca from Country Vista Alpacas in April 2008. It has
been an exciting journey!  They provide professional, yet friendly, on- going support.
A valuable resource, Lynn & Don are very knowledgeable about the alpaca industry.
I agist my alpacas at Country Vista and have purchased Herdsire breedings from
them. They have allowed me to learn, ‘hands on’ , about the care of these
wonderful animals- from shearing, to breeding and more!
 
SunKeya Farms (email) nestled in the Rockies near Oliver B.C Canada, is a
new alpaca farm, home to Clayton & Linda Schultz.
Linda writes, “Wow! We never knew that owning alpacas could bring such joy and constant smiles! Thank you Lynn and Don.
Having known Lynn and Don for numerous years prior to making our decision to become alpaca owners made our decision on who to purchase our first (which turned into 6) alpaca from very easy.
Lynn and Don, having been in the alpaca industry for many years, have been very generous in sharing their experience and knowledge with us. The knowledge shared with us prior to our purchase was enormous but perhaps even more so, since we became owners. Lynn is always just an e-mail or phone call away for any question you may have and is always excited to share in our new found experiences that we have encountered over the last 2 years. A part of Country Vista will always be here at Sunkeya Farm Alpacas!”
