Here at The Backyard Alpaca Company we strive to breed top quality Suri alpacas. We select top stud males throughout the UK to improve our females as much as possible. On the farm we combine top class husbandry with a deep pool of genetics to produce animals with champion fleeces and outstanding conformation. Jacob started this venture in 2014 with 2 females and 2 males and the herd as of October 2016 is at 19! Jacob and his Mum Sue are both very active in the ‘alpaca world’ with Sue being the chairwoman of the Heart of England Alpaca Group.
In their first year of breeding, Backyard Alpacas won Most Successful Small Breeder at the British Alpaca Futurity; the biggest show in Europe. Since then the breeding programme has excelled and resulted in producing a two-time Supreme Champion female (one awarded at the biggest fleece show in Europe), a ten-time champion black female and many other highly placed Suri.
