Delighted by our results at the British Alpaca Society National Show 2018 where 600 alpacas were shown. Appledene Commander in Chief was Reserve Champion Fawn Male. He is a senior now so very pleased with that. His daughter CME Leda was awarded the Reserve Champion White Female and another daughter CME Eugenia was first in an intermediate fawn female class. Following her was a CME Priam 11 daughter CME Agatha, third in the same class whilst another daughter CME Brigit was first in the junior fawn female class. Our little beige boy CME Ethan was first in his class whilst the whites didn’t do too badly either. There were five classes of junior white females and CME Carlotta was fourth in hers as was CME Orlando 11 and CME Dion.

Services to Appledene Commander in Chief and CME Priam ll are available this summer.

We were pretty surprised and thrilled to be awarded the Fibre to Product award for our Posh Socks by Paul Whittey of Penrose Products who sponsor the Fibre Zone at the National Show.

Chas Brooke and Rachel Hebditch have been breeding alpacas for 20 years and run a herd of 100 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 bio-security plan for the management of risks which includes having the perimeter of the farm securely fenced against any incursion by wildlife.  Management and avoidance of infectious diseases forms a big part of our daily farm practice. If you would like more information on this please read the section here

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.

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.
