In his three and only shows, Cuesta Kissinger, one of our intermediate males, has won Supreme Champion Black, Best Black and Reserve Champion Black. He has done us proud in the 2016/17 show season  and we are looking forward to later in the year when the 2017/18 season starts.

 Jenny and Martyn Ellwood-Wade farm about 100 huacaya alpacas on a farm overlooking the Hunua Ranges, close to Clevedon and half an hour from Auckland airport. Our main focus is breeding a line of high quality, fine, soft handling and lustrous jet black alpacas. Until this year, we have been members of Alpaca Association New Zealand for over 10 years.  We welcome export enquiries.

We have alpacas for sale at great prices. As we are winding down towards retirement, we are looking to reduce our herd size to our elite breeding males and females. This means we are looking for homes for our other lovely alpacas at very affordable prices as long as you can persuade us that you will care for them properly. Our elite alpacas are also available of course, just not at bargain basement prices.

We do have a few other colours bred both for their fibre and for use in our black breeding programme. We offer a full support alpaca sales service, Cuesta Care, in our local area. Alpacas are the perfect animals for the lifestyle block owner but we warn you they are addictive!

We have a weaving studio and an on farm shop selling woven products made by Jenny and a small range of other carefully selected alpaca products. These products are unique, our own designs, woven in limited editions in hand dyed colours and hand finished. As each is different, we don't have an online shop but can organise sales easily via email.

We are also  dealers for Majacraft Spinning Wheels and other equipment. Jenny can demonstrate all the products and help with any spinning or fibre preparation  queries that you have.

We host farm tours for small parties, tailored to individual requirements. See our Farm Tours page.

Visit  Alpaca Box, our online shop for all sorts of gorgeous alpaca fibre products including scrumptious woven wraps, throws, scarves, baby blankets exquisite hand knitted items and baby gear.
