Ballintotas Alpacas is home to a small herd of award-winning huacaya alpacas. Our farm boasts a fully stocked onsite store, educational support for new owners, and instruction in the fibre arts.
Our focus is on fibre and the importance of proven genetics in moving a herd's fibre production to its next level of quality and longevity. In keeping with our emphasis on the benefits of the fleece, we are committed to presenting alpaca products from a variety of sources. By working together, locally and internationally, we can create a superior alpaca industry!
Across the many years we have been in the industry, we have come to believe that we are meant to provide forever homes for our alpacas that honour the symbiotic relationship between the land, the animals, and the people. In return, the respectful interaction between alpaca and farmer creates a life in balance.

Ballintotas Alpacas is committed to ‘slow fashion’: a holistic approach that considers the entire product cycle in a purposeful and intentional way. We promote public education about alpacas and the farm-to-closet creation cycle of their fibre.
Every decision made at Ballintotas Alpacas is made with respect for the environment, the animals, the people, and the cultures involved in the creation of final products. We remain true to our values despite the trends, and we respect the autonomy of the animals.
