Our Mission Statement:
The purpose, goals and mission at Robin’s Nest Alpacas are not separated but rather a homogeneous life endeavor and commitment to produce outstanding quality Huacaya Alpacas with traits that well surpass the average. Striving for good health, fine dense fiber, consistent color and recognized superior genetics for each alpaca in the RNA herd. Our clients can expect to receive the very best service and support, particularly those new to the Alpaca ownership experience.
Robin’s Nest Alpacas was originally established (2004) in the Lakes Area north of Detroit, MI. Starting with four bred females and a couple of “gifted” geldings it was not long before the numbers began to climb. The learning gradient was also steep but with the help, knowledge and support of other local breeders and great vets we were soon off on the fun ride of our lives! Late in 2006 we relocated to Springfield, a small historic town to the west of Kentucky’s scenic Bluegrass country. Robin's Nest farm grew from five to sixteen acres with the move to KY and is mainly fertile pastureland. A modern adapted tobacco barn built over a 5,000 gallon water cistern, adequate hay storage, work rooms and tractor shed form the centralized core. The barn is surrounded by nine interconnected dry-lots and, by maintaining separate groups, the herd is more easily managed. In rotation, each group has access to two large pastures for grazing and good times. Two Great Pyrenees guardian dogs take 24/7 care of alpaca security. The RNA herd comprises sixty five Huacayas including Full Accoyo, Hemi-Accoyo and Full Peruvian decendants of famed bloodlines including Royal Fawn, Hemingway, Bueno, El Nino, Pachacuti, Caligula, Black Mesquite, 4P Black Magic, Dante, Legacy, Guellermo, Matador, Vengador, Winchester and others. Visitors are welcome by appointment.
