Welcome to Cinco C’s Alpacas in beautiful Potter County (God’s Country), Pennsylvania. Cinco C’s Alpacas was established in 2002 as a new venture on the family farm. So we have entered our 17th year in this wonderful industry and are as excited about our herd as we were when we purchased our first alpacas. Currently our herd consists of around 80 alpacas, many of them Champions and many of them are for sale. With a herd of this size and new ones arriving regularly, many are never listed on our website.
We are extremely proud of our herd which represents the entire alpaca color spectrum and many of the top bloodlines in the country. Our breeding focus is on improving black and grey alpacas who are healthy and provide fleeces for both commercial and cottage use. Every breeding and every addition to our herd is carefully considered with improvement in mind. Our National Champion and ribbon winning herdsires and solid foundation females are the basis for our successful breeding program. Careful decisions have made it possible for us to be able to offer alpacas to benefit both new and established farms.
Our specialty is helping others begin their alpaca journey. We’ll help you with your plan. Whether your business plan includes breeding stock, or fiber only we have what you need to begin or continue. Alpacas are great for hobby farms and they make wonderful pets, and we have those too. From facilities and husbandry to choosing the perfect alpacas to fulfill your objectives, we’ll be here to mentor you.
We strongly believe in the future of the alpaca industry. Because of that we are active members of AOA, PAOBA, EAA, MAPACA, and NEAOBA. In fact, Carol served on the PAOBA BOD for 8 years. She continues to volunteer to support all the organizations that promote the future of the alpaca industry.
We offer healthy, halter-trained, ARI Registered alpacas and breedings to our ARI registered herdsires. We are happy to help you create a package of alpacas for your starter herd or additions to your foundation herd. We also offer diverse financing options. Most important of all we offer our outstanding customer support.
Give us a call to make arrangements to meet our alpacas. Contact us to register for one of our seminars or to inquire about any of our alpacas.
