About Our Associate Members and Member Farms -
NEAOBA members feel passionately that their alpacas are like nothing else on earth — inquisitive and gentle creatures that provide the most luxurious of natural fiber, as well as a solid business investment.
There are no finer quality alpacas than right here in New England, which, with its family farm tradition, ideal climate, and outstanding alpaca bloodlines and strong regional association (NEAOBA), make New England the perfect place to
buy and raise alpacas.
Just one touch...and you may fall in love with alpacas too!
