About Silver Cloud Alpacas
My husband Paul and I
moved to our 72 acre farm just north of Kingston in 1985. After renting the land
out for beef cattle and having a small herd of cattle myself, I decided to
switch to alpaca farming. The first alpacas arrived in 1998 and I have continued
to buy alpacas to upgrade and to ensure a diversity of genetics. I was a
founding member of Alpaca Ontario and served on the Board of Directors for the
first three years, in charge of education as well as being on the show
committee. I semi-retired from my family medicine practice in 1999, and am now
fully retired, with the majority of my time spent looking after the alpacas and
dealing with the fleece end of the business. I have also written articles for
Camelid Quarterly, Alpacas Magazine and the Alpaca Ontario newsletter.
Whether you are
looking for an addition to your herd or are researching whether alpacas
are right for you, you are always welcome to visit. For those buying
alpacas I look forward to giving you the best instruction, support and
follow-up. I have been to numerous alpaca educational events in Canada
and the States and have many years of experience to share with you.
