Katy Spears has been breeding high quality huacaya alpacas for eleven years. She is the mother of four children, and manages a herd of 60+ alpacas on her ten acre farm in Alabama. Ten years ago, Katy was finishing her doctoral degree in psychology, and her husband, Steve was working in the computer industry. They left that all behind to move to their farm and raise alpacas and their children. At the beginning the alpaca business was more of a shared endeavor. Now that Steve’s dream of being a working artist has come to fruition, Katy tends to the alpaca farm. The alpacas have always been a great passion for her.
“Years ago, when our grandmothers lived on farms, it was easier for farm women to connect. They could attend sewing circles, picnics, church events and more. Now there are fewer farm women and we are scattered all across the country. This makes it harder for us to connect with one another. My hope is for this site to be a gathering place for alpaca enthusiasts as well as for those who have never seen an alpaca – but who love farm life. Let’s share our thoughts, ideas, and have fun! If you have an idea for something you’d like me to blog about, please email me.”
I hope you enjoy this site!
