One fateful day in June of 2000, we found our dream home, a beautiful old farmhouse with a very lonely bank barn and our lives have never been the same. Not long after we moved in we stumbled onto Alpacas, and the lonely barn was quickly filled with these fleecy humming beauties.
Our philosophy was to build an elite herd of alpacas by choosing our initial herd from some of the finest bloodlines in North America. Offspring from some of the most renowned herdsires from New England to the Pacific Coast. In our 10th year raising alpacas, our pastures are now home to over 60 Huacayas. We have had the thrill of watching over 100 crias come into the world to date, with many more due every year.
Our initial purchases included the 1st generation offspring of some of the most sought after bloodlines in the US: Bueno, Caligula, Hemingway and many more. We've been given a very nice palette to work with. Now nine years into the Alpaca business, we've produced many Champions of our own (Showcase) including some Champion & Champion producing Herdsires! With our foundation herd in place we've set out to create a breeding program that will compliment and/or improve all of our existing females…
At Silvercloud Farm we strive to match each and every female with a superior male with a PROVEN TRACK RECORD of passing his quality traits on to his crias. We conduct annual histograms to ensure our program is headed in the right direction. Our goal is to see improvement with each and every generation.
The hard work and careful choices we've made for our breeding program are now paying dividends. Whether you are looking to add some diversity to an existing herd or wish to build a foundation herd, Silvercloud Farm is a great place to start. We welcome your visit any time to meet our wonderful herd or breed to one of our Award-Winning Herdsires. Silvercloud Farm is just 20 miles north of & in the beautiful rolling hills of Pittsburgh, PA.
We strive to breed for Alpacas with:
