We are Trevor and Jill Allan and we moved from Dunedin onto our beautiful Lifestyle property over a decade ago to explore country community living and Jill's love of animals.
Here at Gem Alpacas in the beautiful Mackenzie Country we've been breeding since 2002. Our breeding program is going from strength to strength producing lovely dense, fine, coloured Huacaya, concentrating on Browns and Greys of all shades and believe me there are plenty of them. Excellent confirmation and quiet nature are a must for us.
Where are we?
In the beautiful Mackenzie Country. Extremely hot summers and freezing cold winters. Just the way the alpaca likes it. We're right adjacent to the Main Highway as you travel from Christchurch to Queenstown.
What are we doing?
Along with our breeding program we also keep really busy with farm visits for tourists and locals alike.
We are seriously breeding good quality coloured Alpaca, both for sales in high quality good natured animals and highly sort after fibre. We also have a range of proven stud males to improve your breeding program. A very limited number of females are also available.
Where are we going?
Off into the world of breeding beautiful natural coloured alpacas from fawns through to greys and hopefully even some blacks. Our main colours we'd like to work with are the browns, blacks and greys. So with alpacas naturally coming in 22 colours to choose from in 250 shades I think this will be an easy task. This is all made into gorgeous yarn which is all hand spun as individual fleeces by five spinners we have working for us..
