Can Raising Alpacas Be Sustainable?
Well yes, and no, and maybe, or I don’t know! Great answer, huh!
I sure hope so. We have put a lot of blood, sweat, tears, laughs, joy and money into our efforts to see if raising alpacas can be sustainable and even regenerative. Unfortunately, we have not yet proven that it can be sustainable for us. In other words, in full transparency, we have have not yet been profitable, and we have been at least as creative as most breeders have and in many ways we have been more creative.
Without being too evasive, I want to stop here for now! I want you and I to both think about this question for a little while. Get back to us with your thoughts. I will write more about my opinions in the near future. Check back!
