Shearing day tends to be a stressful day at the farm. But it doesn't have to be. It is our goal to make your day easier. Shearing is that one big day in your year, but for us, it is every day.
Jeffrey usually works alongside three crew members. Together they work a "four-man crew" operation – taking care of all the handling of the alpacas. Two members of the crew have the specific job of handling the alpacas and securing them safely to our restraint ropes. This way we can still operate in a timely fashion while giving the animals all of the care and respect they deserve.
We gently lay the animals on our specialized, padded shearing mats and carefully restrain them for their safety during their shearing.
Each alpaca will only be restrained on average of 7-10 minutes. Once the shearing process is complete they will be cleaned and carefully let back up.
Bio-security - We disinfect and wash equipment between farms.

There are many shearers out there who don't focus on providing a good experience for the animals and their owners.
These shearers only want to show up, shear quickly, and leave. As long as they get paid they don't care how everything goes for you. Moreover, many shearers are incredibly difficult to get ahold of and schedule appointments with. We have made it our goal to provide a better experience for you and your animals. Jeff has a background in business management and customer service; combining those professional skill sets with great shearing produces a unique and painless customer experience.
Whether you have hundreds of alpacas in your herd, or you only have two in your backyard, we would be honored to communicate with you and get you a spot on our schedule for shearing your alpacas and llamas.
