Why Alpacas...

Why Gateway Farm...

Alpacas are both a love and a vocation at Gateway Farm. Choose an industry leader...

  • Past President Alpaca Fiber Cooperative of North America
  • Past Vice President/Board member/AOBA Liaison - State of Jefferson Alpaca Association
  • Former member of the National Affiliate Committee of the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA).
  • Award winning breeding stock

At Gateway Farm we fervently believe that alpacas will become a new primary agriculture industry in the United States. Join us, we are "Fashioning the Future"

 
Alpaca Sales

"Manufactures from their hair more resemble silk than woolen stuffs, and some of those made of the Alpaca fleece, are quite black, without having been dyed. It has been a matter of surprise to many, that they are not naturalized in this country, as the climate would not be an obstacle to success. The demand, however, for their produce so much, increases, that it is very probable they may at some future time become denizens of our mountainous districts..."
