About Us

Jo , Scott  and team would like to welcome you to the Hilly Ridge Alpacas website. We are alpaca breeders in Suffolk and are based near Wattisham Suffolk. 

Our alpaca adventure began in 2012 with three pregnant girls, we now have a average herd of fifty alpacas. We have a mixture of colours and  aim to breed friendly happy alpacas, to improve the genetics of the herd, to help other breeders and new owners and also show visitors to the farm how calming and happy they can make people

Jo is now a qualified British Alpaca Society Judge and is happy to assist in advising you with advice on the best alpacas for you and how to improve your herd 

We offer Champion and Supreme Champion stud males to those looking at improving their genetics. We are happy to talk about how our stud males could improve your herd. We also offer males and females for sale for starter herds, flock,guardians or for the show ring !. Please give us a call if you do not see what you are looking for as not all our alpacas are advertised for sale.

We are also keen to offer help and advice to anyone on starter herds and pride ourselves that all our customers are now firm friends and join our network of support and general alpaca chat. We always say “There is never a question, too silly to ask ! “

 

We operate strict Bio-security at our yard for the protection of our Alpacas to insure their health.Visitors to the farm are welcome to visit us but please phone first to arrange a suitable time and day. We are pleased to give you any information you may need and offer a complete back up service and husbandry course if required with every alpaca purchased from us.
