Who needs sheep when Alpaca wool is so much better , learn all about these creates and their home at Caolina Pride Pastures.
Carolina Pride Pastures is an alpaca farm featuring Huacaya and Suri alpacas. The farm specializes in farm tours, educational seminars, fleece sales, knitting and crochet classes, and alpaca fertilizer.
Alicia Holbrook, owner, and her husband, Eric started the farm after Alicia watched a late-night show on the animals after the birth of their second daughter. Eric loved the idea, which is rare!!! After they attended a seminar on the animals, they decided to make the investment.
Alicia graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Business. After over a 10-year career in Human Resources, Alicia gave up her career to be a stay-at-home mom of two smart and beautiful girls. Eric works for a nearby OSB facility where he is a reliability technician.
Over the course of two years, Alicia and Eric purchased land, built a barn, and a fence. With the help of some great family members, the entire project was completed in November 2013. Since the arrival of the starter herd of 5 pregnant females in November 2013, the herd has welcomed 12 crias over the past four years.
The farm is protected by llamas and the Great Pyrenees named Elysa.
Not only does this farm have unique fury creatures, but they also sell hand made crafts and more from their wool.
Products made from their very own alpacas are:
Hand knitted/crocheted blankets
Hand knitted/crocheted shawls
