We founded Dancing Elk Alpacas after a conversation over supper with some good friends. As empty nesters, we were excited about taking an opportunity to make a big lifestyle change. We 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, we visited some amazing alpaca farms, made many close friends, and gained some valuable mentors. Most of all, we saw true passion, exuberance, and sincerity in these alpaca farmers, and knew we had found a community where we belonged. Today, our network of friends and mentors stretches from coast to coast.
