CCNF Adanna, CCNF Charmaine, and the Parade of Champions Auction: Closing Arguments

Hey, did you here that there’s an alpaca auction in 5 days? Truthfully, given the way we and our fellow consignors have been carpet bombing the various electronic mediums of alpacadom, if you still aren’t aware of the upcoming Parade of Champions sale, to be held this coming Friday/Saturday at Little Creek Farm in North . . . → Read More: CCNF Adanna, CCNF Charmaine, and the Parade of Champions Auction: Closing Arguments

CCNF Acapella, Lot # 12 at the Snow Diamond Select Sale!

We are proud to be consignors at the upcoming inaugural Snow Diamond Select Sale, taking place in scenic Bend, OR on October 7th and 8th!

2016 Parade of Champions, Lot #16: CCNF Leviathan

CCNF Leviathan (CCNF Capuchin x CCNF Elixir)

And then…there is this guy. CCNF Leviathan represents perhaps the most advanced animal we have ever offered for sale over our 19+ years of breeding alpacas.

Winter Meanderings

 

CCNF Cosmopolitan (CCNF Elixir x CCNF Gabbana) enjoys a rare snowy day in January.

It sure has been a strange winter here in Vermont so far. While alpaca friends of ours as far south as Maryland had 3 feet of snow fall in a single event a couple of weeks back — I . . . → Read More: Winter Meanderings

CCNF Abby Rose, Lot #9 at the Breeders Edge Sale

CCNF Abby Rose, Grey Female Champion at the 2015 North American Alpaca Show.
