Wishing all a healthy, prosperous 2015!!
In 2014 our plans were to open our farm for a special event, where everyone could experience the peace and profound enjoyment of country life surrounded by grazing alpacas. Our carefully planned event was cancelled due to an illness that ended in my mother's passing at almost 94 years old.
She was an amazing woman who was advanced through 8 grades in her first 5 years in school, and won a bronze medal in a Detroit-wide school spelling bee. It seemed there was nothing she couldn't do, and she taught her 8 daughters to believe the same about themselves.
Mom was my inspiration for investing in Alpacas, when she listened to my plans and said "you've always had good instincts Cora, trust your instincts." God rest your beautiful, merry soul mother, and may everyone think of someone they have known who inspired them, should you read this far.
Best wishes for 2015!
We've been looking for you!

At TealWater Ranch lives a thriving, colorful herd of both Huacaya and Suri alpacas. We are large enough to help new breeders build quality starter-herd packages, yet still fully hands-on to provide individual attention and sound advice. We know each of our alpacas' names, personalities, fiber traits and bloodlines as we assembled this herd individually through selective investments and breeding decisions. Our choice of studs has resulted in multiple show champions produced on our farm - enough to qualify Tealwater Ranch as "Certified Elite".
Our dedication to ethical, responsible raising of alpacas for the unique fiber they produce is your assurance that you will get sound advice and honest answers, not to mention thoughtful help in selecting either alpaca livestock or fiber to meet your needs.
