Yaringa Alpacas is situated at Bald Hills in South Australia, approximately 1 hour drive south of Adelaide, off the Yankalilla to Victor Harbor Road.
IN THE BEGINNING ....
Yaringa Alpacas is owned and managed by Susan Haese. We purchased our first two alpacas as pets in 2000 and our fascination with these animals led us to purchase our first two girls in 2002.
Over the next few years we bred a few alpacas of our own and purchased a few more. Our herd grew and by mid 2005 we had 15 animals. Yes, alpacas are addictive!! At this point we decided to build our hobby into a business and purchased syndicate shares in three elite black males, "Coonawarra Gladiator", "Bonnie Park Black Thunder" and "Coonawarra Thunderbolt".
We showed our first alpacas in 2004, and as the years have gone by the show team has got bigger and better each year. Our show results from the beginning are on the "show results" page of this website.
In 2008 we added the elite males "Ambersun King's Ransom" (light fawn) and rose grey male "Alpacaspecialist Red Baron". In October 2009 we added "Canchones Ferrari Black ET" (black) and "Shanbrooke Simply the Best" (light fawn) and in 2013 is "Pentland Giorgio" joined the stable.
April-May 2015 saw the Yaringa herd move from our base at Currency Creek to our exciting new home "Coomooloo Station" at Bald Hills between Inman Valley and Yankalilla. Coomooloo is traditionally a sheep property and the nearly 1000 acres will give our alpacas plenty of room to move.
Since arriving at Coomooloo, the Yaringa herd goes has gone from strength to strength - our alpacas are growing out quicker and are stronger have longer staple lengths.
The Yaringa team continues to excel in the show ring going from strength to strength and you can find our recent results on the show results page.
Yaringa Alpacas look forward to being of service to you.
