Kim and Mike Quesenberry founded Dancing Elk Alpacas after a conversation over supper with some good friends. As empty nesters, they were excited about taking an opportunity to make a big lifestyle change. They had grown up with cattle and swine, and their kids were always in 4-H, so they had basic knowledge of raising livestock and were passionate about alpacas.
While researching the business, Kim and Mike visited some amazing alpaca farms, made many close friends, and gained some valuable mentors. Most of all, they saw true passion, exuberance, and sincerity in these alpaca farmers, and they knew they had found a community where they belonged. Today, their network of friends and mentors stretches from coast to coast.
