ABOUT OUR TOURS: Our tours are geared more towards adults and older children. Education based, we answer a lot of questions and share a lot of information regarding the origin and care of the alpacas as well as how the fiber is used and processed. Young children under the age of 5, may prefer a petting zoo type facility instead of a working farm such as ours...but of course all are welcome. Alpacas are sweet, but very shy and don't like loud noises and fast movement. However, if you are patient they will come up to you and give you a kiss. We do let folks interact with them (pet them with our assistance) and usually feed them a bit when appropriate. We do our best to be sure everyone has an enjoyable visit, humans and alpacas alike.
NOW OFFERING - the PUMPKIN BUTT cleaning service. Pumpkin Butt, aka: Shiner - Moonshine - Gaterface, will be more then happy to clean up any stray french frys, Be warned: If the car door is open his nose will follow...

Meet the Alpacas

They are even cuter in person! Weather you are seriously considering raising alpacas or have just always wanted to see one up close, we would be glad to have you visit us.

Visits to LMA include hands on, up close and personal alpaca encounters. While we are not a petting zoo, we do encourage our visitors to touch the alpacas with our assistance. We will be glad to answer your questions. We find that our visitors are as curious about the alpacas as the alpacas are about our visitors.

Have you asked yourself if alpacas would be a good fit for you? Let us help you with that answer. We have been raising, breeding and showing alpacas for over 16 years. We are both very involved in all aspects of owning alpacas from cleaning the pastures, daily herd health, shearing, to making finished products with alpacas. We are both also committed to positive change in the alpaca community through service on organization boards, having both served on the GAA board (Georgia Alpaca Association), and managing events, such as the Royal Alpaca Challenge Show and the Southern Select Alpaca Show. Courtney has also served on National AOA committees (JTCC & Marketing).

It is such a pleasure to be around these peaceful creatures. We think you will agree.

Learn what we do with the fiber

We will be glad to walk you through the world or alpaca fiber from shearing to the making of a finished product.

We use all of our fiber shorn from the alpacas from putting the dirty leg and belly fiber out in baskets for the birds to collect for nests, to making rugs with the seconds and thirds and of course lovely yarns and rovings from the prime blanket.

We have many of these products for sale in our store.

Lardworks Studio Glass Shop

We use Effetre Italian and German Luasha soft glass to hand sculpt beads in our glass shop located above the birthing barn. Sculpting glass beads is called "Lampworking" and is a very old craft requiring a very hot torch. We would be glad to perform a lampworking demonstration for you (just ask).

While we do sell individual glass beads at Lardworks Studio, most are hand crafted into beautiful one of a kind jewelry pieces accented with sterling silver, Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones.

Shop in the Farm/Studio Store

We do not charge any fees to visit the farm, but we do encourage you to shop in our farm/studio store. You will find jewelry, beads, and all things alpaca related, from felting kits to alpaca socks and sweaters.

There is always someone at the farm, but sometimes we are very busy with chores or we have relatives or friends visiting. This is a private farm, so we do ask that you give us the courtesy of always calling before heading our way.
