Tierra Bonita Alpacas

Tierra Bonita Alpacas is a family owned and operated alpaca farm located in beautiful middle Tennessee. We own and produce high quality huacaya alpacas while focusing on superior fiber, conformation and disposition. Each spring we shear our herd of alpacas and harvest their incredible fiber. We then take the fiber and process it turning it into roving, yarn and finished handmade products. Alpacas sport one of the most luxurious and valuable fibers that exists today. It is the combination of softness, tensile strength and variety of color that set alpaca apart from other luxury fibers. We take pride in both our animals and our top-notch customer service. Our bloodlines include some of the top pedigrees in the industry such as Royal Fawn, Peruvian Hemingway, Peruvian Bueno, Peruvian Guellermo, 4Peruvian Black Magic, PCA Accoyo El Nino, PPeruvian Caligula, 5Peruvian Inca's Ransom, PPeruvian Camilio, PPeruvian Victor, PPPeruvian Grand Master, PPPeruvian Yupanqui, Supernova, 4Peruvian Chaval, Roman Candle of Bolivia, Bolivian Redeemer, PPPeruvian Felix, Request the Best, Aussie Rockford, Bolivian Black Thunder, Cisco Kid, 5Peruvian Silverado, Peruvian Macusani, 5Peruvian Royal Inca Legend, Acero Marka's Mr. Know It All & Acero Marka's Rockamundo!

Breeding Goals:

Our alpacas are bred to be hearty and healthy, easy to manage and maintain, while producing a very valuable, high quality, marketable fiber. We particularly focus on three important key features: fiber, conformation, and disposition.

We like big, bold, strong bone structured alpacas that consistently have low micron (fine fibered), high fequency crimp style, thick substantial lock structure, beautiful brightness & luster and one of the most important fiber criteria: extreme fleece coverage and density. We also prefer alpacas that have textbook conformation, exhibit very "typey" heads and have full leg coverage as well. Our breeding program is strongly based on science and meticulous herd management, aimed at calculated advancement of our herd. The emphasis is on the significance of genotype over phenotype, although the contributions of both are considered.

Breeding decisions are deliberate with all of the above mentioned in mind. Each female is evaluated for the traits she excels in and what she needs to improve on. We match her with an appropriate herdsire on that basis so we are continually bettering our alpacas and overall herd.

Also, in females, we value: easy conception, trouble-free morning birthing, generous milking and strong mothering ability. And in males, we value: strong libido, high fertility and the ability to produce incredible, superior crias!

Alpacas offer a sustainable lifestyle while proving to be the world's finest livestock investment...their natural simplicity makes them a pleasure to own and breed...
