About us
About Sherlin Alpaca Stud

Alpaca Studs, Suri, Huacaya and cria (babies) 

We are a well-established, contemporary stud farm and one stop shop in the Selwyn District Canterbury specialising in all things alpaca. We're located 20 minutes from Christchurch Airport, New Zealand. Farm tours are welcomed with no appointment necessary. We also have a well established on-farm shop selling alpaca clothing using locally-grown alpaca fibre, yarn for the home knitter, machine knitted jumpers, socks as well as other items related to alpacas.

Over a number of years we have built up a top-quality stock, now numbering 120. We sell alpacas for breeding and as wonderful pets. We also play an active role in the Alpaca Association of New Zealand and work with other established breeders and lifestyle farmers to build and improve stock. We have many clients in the Waimakariri area, all around New Zealand and also internationally.

We encourage calls and visits from those wanting to learn about alpacas. Whether you are looking for your first alpaca or searching for the missing piece needed to enhance your existing herd, you will find what you are looking for here. In addition, we can help with shed, shelter, pasture, and yarding design.

We take pride in being a full-service alpaca farm dedicated to the success of our customers through good genetics, education and ongoing support. We offer to our customers' personalised support, comprehensive hands-on training to new breeders, shearing and other husbandry services, agistment, stud services, and fair prices for quality alpacas.
