Situated in the picturesque King Country,
in the small town of PioPio, North Island, New Zealand.

LLAMAS...
...Beautiful, dignified and intelligent, with a curious nature
and a natural curiosity.

Llamas make great pets.
Whether you have male llamas or female llamas, they are the most intelligent, sensitive, gentle and curious natured animal to own as pets. Llamas just love being with people.

Llamas are great for Lifestyle Blocks. With a low protein diet they don't require top quality pasture. Llamas also have minimal health requirements, making them ideal for lifestyle block situations as they are not expensive to look after.

Llamas have a fine, soft, lustrous, lanoline free fibre starting from 18 microns. Llama fibre is used for spinning, knitting, weaving and felting. As llama fibre is lanoline free, people who have allergies to wool can often wear llama fibre.

Llamas have been used as a beast of burden over the last 5000 years in South America. They can carry up to one third of their body weight.

Come trekking with our beautiful llamas, over our farm which is situated in PioPio. King Country, North Island, New Zealand and enjoy the natural landscape with its native bush, limestone rock formations and clean clear waters of the Mokau River and Mangotaki River. Here you can enjoy a homemade country lunch and a glass of wine and relax to the sounds of the country, while the llamas rest near by.
