President and Membership Chair
Linda & I are long time members and enthusiastic supporters of
NEAOBA. The organization has helped supplement our marketing efforts and
has offered us many opportunities to meet other alpaca enthusiasts and to
develop important business contacts, many of which have evolved into
long-standing personal relationships that we will always cherish.
We maintain a moderate size hands-on breeding
farm. From our start in 1996, it was our goal to maintain a herd size that allowed
for individual attention, care & training of each member
of our herd. Our size also ensures that each and every
visitor or client, whether an experienced breeder or new
to Alpacas, has our complete and personal attention and
Parris Hill Farm is in a small, picturesque Vermont village at the
base of Mt. Ascutney in the Connecticut River Valley, just 25 minutes
south of historic Woodstock, Vermont and Hanover, New Hampshire.
expanded and totally renovated our main barn, designed and built four
large and two smaller run-ins and incorporated a series of pastures and runways
emphasizing ease of herd management and movement. We focused on the
importance of pasture rotation and are continually adapting to the needs
of bio-security and quarantining. The health of our herd and the health
of our visitors and their respective herds is of paramount importance
to us at all times.
We pride ourselves on the quality and breadth
of our breeding stock, both for the females and the herd sires, and our
ARI registered herd reflects the direct results of our selectivity in
genetics. Searching for - and breeding - only the best has enabled us to
produce Huacayas that are not only conformationally correct with
superior fiber qualities and disposition but who have also earned high
regard and recognition in the alpaca industry.
