Getting Started with a Single Alpaca
Beach Run Farm is now ready to offer a program to potential new alpaca owners of agisting a single female alpaca (either pregnant or maiden) while enjoying the associated financial and emotional benefits and gives the new owner time to establish a permanent farm solution while growing their herd from that single alpaca purchase...either from us or another farm. This is basically agisting arrangement with special conditions. Agistment is, where for a small fee, we keep your animals and look after them for you. You can visit the animals and make major decision relating to your alpacas. Agistment provides a way of reaping the benefits of your investment without the day-to-day commitment of looking after your animals and is ideal for those investing in one starter animal allowing it to be kept within a herd so it will not be stressed by isolation. Give us a call to go over the details and we will provide you a copy of our agistment contract. See more information on our blog page.

We are a small farm located in Oxford, NC, one hour west of Raleigh/Durham, just south of the Virginia line. One conversation two years ago started us researching and planning to someday make our dream of owning alpacas a reality. As we began visiting alpaca farms, going to shows, researching the care of these beautiful animals, and finally purchasing 4 pregnant girls and 2 boys, we moved on to looking for a farm to call home. After only a week of searching, we found just what we wanted - peace and quiet on 40 acres backing up to a creek with beautiful pastures for our alpacas to call home. We are still a work in progress as we continue to grow. Check out our website at www.beachrunalpacas.com
We are thrilled with the decision to add Huacayas to our breeding program. We are now in the process of finding and purchasing a few foundation females to our Huacaya program. We plan to continue with our goal of grays to black, but hope to have both Suris and Huacays to meet every breeders' wants. Stop by to view our new Huacaya foundation females as we continue to grow. We received our first two a few months ago; a beautiful medium silver gray dam who is due in a couple of weeks (July, 2012) and her medium silver gray cria. NOTE: Jasmine gave birth to a lovely fawn male cria we named Tristram in July. Read more about him on our blog.
We offer 3 months free agisting after the sale of each animal; longer if needed for a dam and her cria. Additionally, one free breedback is offered for each dam and half price breedbacks for as long as you own the animal.
Do not have a farm yet but want the tax deductions available from owning alpacas? Buy from us, and we will agist your alpaca until you are ready to move them to your farm. Ask us about our agistment policy if you are interested. We will birth your alpacas on our farm for a minimal birthing fee and work with you while you are getting your new farm or getting your property ready for your new alpaca friends. If you are in the area and want a good place to keep your animals until you are ready for them; we will agist them here with our alpacas and treat them like part of our herd. Call us for details.
CHECK OUT TWO OF OUR JUNIOR HERDSIRES: Our very own Obsidian had his debut at the Royal Alpaca Challenge in Conyers, Georgia at 7 months of age and took a 1st place in his class. He was back in the ring to compete for a color championship but did not place. We are excited to see what he can do for us at the next few shows. He is growing into a beautiful male like his father King Kohl. Read more about him on our blog.
Code Blue is definitely a winner in and out of the ring. See his many awards including Futurity
