About the TAA
The Tennessee Alpaca Association is a group of alpaca owners who consider Tennessee their home. Made up of many small farms scattered across the state, the members of the TAA have joined together to help each other build a thriving and robust alpaca industry within the state of Tennessee and beyond. By focusing on our collective keen interest in these wonderful animals the members hope to continue to educate themselves and others on alpaca care and alpaca fiber production. It's all about the alpacas.
