Alpaca Akers

In December 2020, our farm welcomed two lawn mowers; and by that, we mean Alpacas.

Blankstone’s Queen Elizabeth (aka Liz) is a dark grey and white, 10 year old Huacaya alpaca with the best top knot around. Peruvian LuLu (Lu) is a medium teddy bear brown, 8 year old Huacaya alpaca who has a fierce side eye.

In addition to their lawn mowing properties, the girls love to bask in the sun, roll in the dirt, alert us to any farm predators, and catch up on all the goat gossip in the neighboring field.

Welcome home, ladies!

Alpaca Akers is adjacent to Shirley Family Farms and celebrates our family history along with the farm’s focus on sustainable agriculture.
