Peter and Stephanie Shirnack of Bonnack Grove Alpacas live on the outskirts of friendly Feilding, New Zealand.
Having seen these wonderful animals at various field day events and talking to breeders in our local area, the next step in owning
alpacas was to join the Alpaca Association New Zealand. We soon took the plunge and purchased two wethers in 2007. These two seemed lonely grazing in the paddock so the numbers quickly increased to five. We then purchased our first females
and proceeded to breed. Having achieved some good results from our breeding program the herd expanded over the next few years..
The herd consists predominately of Huacaya animals with a smattering of Suri among them. Our plan is to breed
fine coloured alpacas.
This fibre is being used to produce wool and garments. Having a good selection of colours it has been fun to see how each colour turns out after it has been home spun and knitted up.
Along with alpaca sales,
woolen products are also available for sale. Check out our sales pages
