Our Commitment is to bring glory to God in part by raising the best alpacas we can, by having a caring attitude toward both people and animals, helping others whenever possible, and trying to have a positive impact on everyone we meet.

It has been our privilege to help many new alpaca farms get off to a wonderful start. It brings us great joy to see them grow and succeed, even when they beat us in the show ring. In the early stages there are many phone calls and questions and much need for encouragement and support. As the new breeders' confidence and competence increases the phone calls become less frequent, but they know they can always call for help with a medical question or to borrow a spare generator when their power is knocked out or just to share their joy at the latest birth. "It's a girl!"

Education is very important at Promised Land Farm. We are always educating ourselves and passing along our knowledge to anyone who can benefit from it. We offer monthly workshops on the skills needed to start up and run an alpaca farm.

We also offer advanced workshops for the experienced alpaca breeder including fecal workshops and shearing clinics.

Our Alpacas have been carefully selected to achieve excellence in both our black and our white Peruvian bloodlines. Seven extraordinary black Pure Peruvians representing five distinct female bloodlines from five different parts of Peru give us the genetic diversity needed to produce the outstanding black animals of the future. Our genetic diversity is further enhanced by the extensive use of a wide variety of the best outside studs. A limited number of black and very dark animals are available for purchase each year. Although our primary focus is on black, we strongly believe that every farm needs some outstanding white animals. Not only do the best white Peruvian fleeces set the standard of excellence for which we strive in all colors, but as the fledgling North American fiber industry grows and develops, the demand for high quality white and light colored fiber is likely to rise as did in Peru. Accordingly, our herd contains some excellent whites and fawns. Our newest area of excellence - a few amazing grays.

We work cooperatively with other local breeders both small and large for the benefit of all. Come visit us! We are waiting for you!
