Having both retired, the owners of Marchmont Park Alpacas are able to spend much of their time with the alpacas in their day-to-day care and to be there when crias (babies) are born. They are committed to breeding healthy animals with sound temperaments. Their females have been hand-picked and are producing quality progeny. The stud males can be viewed on the website.

Alpaca products are available direct from Marchmont Park or through the Yass Valley Information Centre.
