Help us Celebrate Alpaca Farm Days!
We are having Alpaca Farm Days Saturday & Sunday, November 28th & 29 and December 5th & 6th from 10 to 4.
After your FREE visit with the alpacas you can browse through our store with many items made from the luxurious fleece. Maybe you'll find the perfect gift for a special someone! We are having a lot of specials the next 2 weekends. Baby alpaca sweaters and scarves are on sale as well a $1 off of each pair of sock. Many more sales listed soon.
Stroll through our gardens for unusual perennials and trees. We might have that accent plant you are looking for. We have a lot of butterfly host plants including parsley, fennel and dill for Swallowtails, Pawpaw trees for Zebra Swallowtails and Milk Weed for the Monarchs. Also many flowers that the butterflies love to get the nectar from.
Can't visit the farm? Call or email and I will ship your items to you.
Raising Alpacas in Florida!
Be sure to visit Alpaca Magic USA for "Rarest of Breeds...the Ultimate Natural Fiber...Suri Alpacas..." www.youtube.com/watch?v=btUYgk5KaKk
The Suri Alpaca has unique fiber characteristics that distinguish them from the rest of the camelid family; llamas, huacaya alpaca, vicuna, quanaco and the camel. The Suri Alpaca fiber has a cool slick hand; soft as cashmere, warmer than wool, with the luster of silk. Thinking about raising alpacas? Think about raising the rarest of breeds...the Suri Alpaca, less than 17% of all alpacas in the country, and in the world.
Located just east of Historic Homosassa Springs, in Homosassa, Florida, Alpaca Magic USA is home to about 50 suri alpacas. In 1996 we started out with just 2 pregnant females and have grown to become one of Florida's largest alpaca farms. Alpaca Magic USA is a family owned and run business. Jean Riley and her Son, Kent Mylin and his wife, Doreen, work together to raise, breed and market these wonderful creatures. For many years we had close to 150 alpacas but since we are getting older and also have other interests (like our gardens), our goal is to have just 30 alpacas. So if you are thinking about looking into purchasing some alpacas, this is a good time to visit our farm.
Alpacas have come a long way since we started in the industry back in 1996. The quality of the alpacas today is so much superior to the alpacas 20 years ago. That is because most all farms, including Alpaca Magic, have "bred up" their alpacas. Every couple years we purchase new high-quality herdsires, breeding males, and breed them to our best females creating an even better cria than the dam (the Mom). We shop for our breeding males all over the country to find just the right one to upgrade our herd. By doing this we can compete in the showring with some of the biggest farms in the country and come out of the ring with blue ribbons and Championships. Purchasing BRKRD Maxamus will help us continue to improve our herd. Maxamus won a championship ribbon 7 times and his skin biopsy shows a density of 84.29 which is much higher than Dr. Norm Evans has ever seen. Max is breeding our girls now and we are anxious to see the results in the spring. Give us a call if you would like to breed one of your girls to Maxamus or perhaps purchase one of our females already bred to him.
We are a full service farm. We will always be here for you...from start to finish. Give us a call any time to ask us about alpacas. We have been raising camelids for over 25 years and have had a lot of hands-on experience with them.
Breed to the top of the line herdsires; GLR Manitou is a Color Champion and has produced many Champions and new to the farm is BRKRD Maxamus from Miller-McMahan Alpacas. When you purchase a female from us she gets a breeding to Maxamus!!!
This is a great time to start your alpaca lifestyle...
