We were taking an early spring
walk through our 38 acre woodlot and stopped on the highbank
overlooking the Grand River. As we stood there in the chill of
the day, a Bald Eagle sailed out from behind the island and headed
down river between the "ledges" which form the river
banks in this area.
A few months later when we discovered
our love of alpacas and decided we needed a name for our farm,
we remembered the emotion of that spring eagle sighting and Eagle
Ledge Farm was born.
We are fully operational,
although we are in continuous construction, as we expand our
facilities to meet the needs of a growing herd. Our desire is
to keep the natural beauty of the woods while reclaiming the
farmland for pasture and buildings. Our pastures are taking odd
shapes as we allow the creeks to remain untamed and work around
the natural terrain. The alpacas enjoy the shade of the mature
trees and we enjoy seeing the crias under the blooming dogwoods.
The native animals enjoy being able to traverse the farm through
the dense areas outside the pastures.
All our animals are registered
and we are members of AOBA,
Suri Network. Please visit these sites to learn more of the
history, investment potential, and physiology of alpacas as well
as calendars of events around the U.S and in your locale. You
will also find many links to other farms and ranches which make
up the friendly community of alpaca owners.
Eagle Ledge Farm
offers a full range of services, including; agistment, herdsire
service, fleece and animal sales. It is sometimes difficult to
see our buildings through the trees, so
check the map in Bits and Pieces before you drive by. We welcome
visitors by appointment but haven't turned away anyone who just
"drops by" to see our farm and alpacas. When will you
