Testimonial by Family new to alpacas

"Long Acres Alpaca Farm is an amazing experience with comfortable accommodations and a feeling like you have gone back in time.

Testimonial from Fellow Alpaca Breeder

"I highly recommend taking any of the classes Sarah offers throughout the year.  She is a wonderful, patient instructor with a wealth of knowledge she’s ready to share.  The information is presented in an organized manor with handouts to refer to during and after the classes and she provides what I call "after care" for questions that come up after you leave the farm. Her guest house is welcoming, clean and neat and provides every comfort plus it is conveniently right on the farm.   Well worth...

Testimonial from A Client and Wonderful Shepherd!

"I met Sarah about five years ago after my daughter bought a female alpaca on an online auction.  We needed help with shearing, and Sarah not only welcomed us to bring Sparkle for her shearing day, but she also sent us home with two girlfriends for Sparkle!  Over the past few years, Sarah has been just a phone call away when I have needed anything from fiber processing questions to shearing to medical emergencies.  When one of my girls got sick a couple years ago, Sarah was able to support me...

Her workshops are equally relevant to both newcomers and seasoned alpaca owners. I look forward to...

Testimonial From a Sheep and Alpaca Farm Owner

"Sarah literally saved my alapaca's life. We got our amazing fiber alpacas from her in 2017 and she has been a mentor and friend, helping us with questions and issues that have come up. But when I saw one of my alpacas acting oddly, she came to our farm to check on him. It turned out he had m-worm and her quick recognition of it, giving us meds from her own supplies until the vet could come out the next day, and constant support saved his life. I could never express my gratitude enough for her...

Testimonial from an Internationally Renowned Alpaca Expert

"In my thirty years in the alpaca business both here in the US and in Australia I have met and worked with many people but none, I am pleased to say, as committed to the ideals of best practice alpaca breeding and fiber production and industry development.
