Angel Fleece Alpaca Farm

Let us put an Angel by your side

About Us

Let Us introduce ourselves. We are Karen and Roger Dunn of Angel Fleece Alpaca Farm, and our farm coordinator Juan . We want to thank you for continuing to check us out, and for visiting another page of our website.

After raising cattle and horses for about 12 years, we decided to take our farm in a different direction. We knew we still wanted to raise some type of livestock, one that would be easy to manage, and gentler users of the land than previously, and so began our search.

It took us about 1½ years of research during which time we heard about alpacas, and after reading, farm visits, and attending the North American Livestock show, we learned alpacas were right for us, fit our farm needs, and also offered a great tax advantage. We then bought our first two alpacas (bred females), and that began our herd in 2001, which today is now approaching 80 alpacas.

Roger, and myself are all animal lovers and find the alpaca lifestyle to be very rewarding. Every alpaca on the farm has its own individual personality and uniqueness, which can be very entertaining, and brings a little smile to your face as you interact with them each day. When you have crias being born on your farm the anticipation is answered with this new little boy or girl, and you get so excited, with such a feeling of happiness, you know how lucky you are to be a part of this industry. To let you know a little more about us please read on:

Roger and I, both have business degrees from the University of Kentucky, and have that knowledge to share with you, as well as our practical experience.

Roger Dunn - Previous owner of a successful food service sales agency for 30 years, Roger has sound business experience that he can share with future breeders, as it pertains to the alpaca industry.
