Our alpacas did well at the Devon County Show with our 13 month old fawn male CME Priam II taking Show Champion Huacaya and CME Constance, a junior fawn female, awarded Reserve Champion. CME Nimrod was Show Champion Huacaya in the shorn fleece classes with CME Maia Reserve Champion. It hardly rained at all too.
Congratulations to Caton Alpacas, Bear House Alpacas and Meadow Farm Alpacas on the Devon County Show rosettes they took home won by progeny of our stud males.

Chas Brooke and Rachel Hebditch have been breeding alpacas for eighteen years and run a herd of 200 animals. We love our alpacas and are hugely enthusiastic about our breeding programme which is designed to produce healthy productive alpacas with excellent conformation and advanced fleeces. Our farm has a strict biosecurity management plan in place and the perimeter of the farm is securely fenced against any incursion by wildlife.
You are welcome to visit our farm, just outside Tiverton in Devon, where we can meet and answer your questions in person and show you our beautiful alpacas. Please e-mail or telephone to make an appointment.
New owners can rely on us to train them in alpaca husbandry and deliver a first class back up service.
Experienced breeders can be sure that we have thought carefully about every breeding and that our stud males are among the best in the world.
We have a wide range of alpacas for sale from show winning males and females, pregnant females with cria at foot and stud males to charming geldings who make wonderful field pets or sheep and flock guards.
There are educational courses at our farm in Devon throughout the year at very reasonable prices. The beginners course Discover Alpacas, the Stud Management Day or the Fibre Workshop. Or, if none of these suit, we can design a course especially for you.
We publish Alpaca World magazine, run UK Alpaca which manufactures alpaca yarns and write a blog Rachel’s Diary on the day to day life of an alpaca farmer.
