Welcome to the Skilling Family.  We, Alan and Lyn, along with sons Ryan and Bradley, live on a 8 hectare (20 acre) lifestyle block in the Maratoto Valley 8 kilometres from Paeroa in the North Island of New Zealand. We have approximately 60 alpaca on farm.


We love our alpacas and are proud to say that we have had great success in the show ring which can be attributed to the use of high quality dams and exceptional stud males.


We have concentrated on building a high quality herd, focusing on fawn and brown huacaya, with fine, dense, well structured fleeces.  We pride ourselves on breeding alpacas with excellent conformation.


Our alpacas are used to being handled and are calm and trusting of us.  We take great delight in observing them and interacting with them. 


Showing our alpacas has become a real family affair.  Bradley is always very keen to be in the show ring whereas Ryan prefers to watch from the side lines.


We enjoy the camaraderie of fellow breeders and welcome anyone who would like to chat about anything alpaca.
