2017 Cria

All of the cria are now on the ground and doing well.  It was another easy unpacking season, with all of the cria up and running so quickly - it never ceases to amase - though I do believe that breeding for this type of vigour has been an important fact0r.   It was also a year for the boys - with ten out of the fourteen needing a tag in their right ear !  As a consequence we only have a few new "Bond Girls" - and photos of these and the rest of the class of 2107 can be found on our Facebook site.

A number of the new arrivals are now in the Sales Pen and details of these can be found on this site or on Alpaca Seller. Should you not find the information you require - please don't hesitate to contact. or phone 07901-554069.


Shearing 2017

Shearing was a great sucess this year, despite the rather tricky and catchy weather.  Thanks to all of the team that helped out.  Not long now until our first cria are due - so please keep an eye out on our Facebook site for photos of the new arrivals.

Our Sales Pen is also being updated and we have a number of great animals coming up for sale - details of these will be on this website, Alpaca Seller and Facebook

Show Results:

Melford Green bred animals were entered into 9 different classes and achieved a front row place in them all.  In addition a further  front row place was achieved by a Lenny sired animal - making a neat 10 out of 10.   A great result demonstrating a good depth of breeding across a range of colours and types.  Golden Promise was once again our stand out male.  Stud services from him can be accessed either via ourselves or our partner in Kent - Haguelands Alpacas.

BBC Countryfile return to Suffolk and Melford Green

We were delighted to host the BBC Countryfile team here in Darsham - for what was their 2nd visit to Melford Green earlier this month.  We thouroughly enjoyed working with the crew and the animals were well behaved - especially as the filming took place just a couple of days after the rather brutal storms of St Jude.  The show will air on Sunday November 17th. We will be posting more photos of the day on our Facebook site  - so please pop along and like this to ensure you keep up on news of this, the farm in general and special offers from our on-line shop
