The Tennessee Affiliate of the Alpaca Owners Association
The Tennessee Alpaca Association is a group of enthusiastic alpaca owners who have joined together to help each other promote interest in and expand knowledge of the North American alpaca herd within Tennessee. (And of course, we all know that Tennessee is The Greatest State In The Land Of The Free. That's why we live here.)
As interest in the alpaca has grown, folks have come to recognize those long-necked creatures they see out grazing in the pasture. They are ALPACAS! Friendly, soft, warm and fuzzy, they are bearers of one of the finest natural fibers known to man. Originally from South America, alpacas can now be found in small herds all across the United States, and if you live in Tennessee, there is probably an alpaca farm right in your area.
We invite you to come and see alpacas for yourself. Search for a Tennessee alpaca farm near you by clicking on the Visit an Alpaca Farm button on this page. Make an appointment with the friendly folks you find there to meet these gentle, inquisitive animals first hand.
Livestock for Fun and Profit.
