National Alpaca Day 2018
Thank you to everyone who visited the farm for National Alpaca Day – an amazing turnout with over 200 visitors. If you would like to visit again or to learn more about alpacas please phone Kim on 027 7120172.
We have had three cria born in 2018, a beautiful little dark fawn girl (Cienna) out of Sacred Coast Electra and our stud male, Voyageur, a stunning white boy (Cooper) out of Sacred Coast Dias and our stud male Sacred Coast Triton, and a gorgeous little brown boy (Clay) out of Sacred Coast Silky Cinnamon and Triton.
As of June 2016 Sacred Coast Suri has relocated to the Marlborough region. Our new property, Falcon’s Rise Alpaca Farm, is around 30 acres of mostly hillside terrain with magnificent views of the mountains and vineyards of the Wairau Plains, right out to Cook Strait. The alpacas have adjusted without difficulty to their new home and seem very at ease on the hillsides.

Little River A and P Show 2013
Thank you to everyone who visited our trade stand at the 2013 Little River A and P Show – a most enjoyable day! Please dont hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange an obligation free visit to our farm to see more of our animals or to talk further about suri alpacas.
In 2012 we bred our first appaloosa suri from a mating between our dark fawn suri sire and a solid white female suri, whose mother was white and fawn. We have watched the development of Triton’s fleece with some interest as he has formed beautiful candycane locks of brown and white. He was shorn in December and this has revealed a mass of brown spots on his neck, chest and flanks. We are very happy with his fleece statistics and he has won his class at every show he has entered, including taking the Premier Fancy Suri title at the 2012 South Island Colourbration Show. We have repeated the same mating with the cria due in late March 2013 and will be intrigued to see the outcome. We intend to keep Triton entire at this stage as we assess his potential as a stud male
