Cinco C's Alpacas was established in 2002 as a new venture on the family farm. When Chris was growing up the Farm was home to a herd of registered Holsteins. Today it's home to our colorful herd of AOA registered huacaya alpacas. You will find the alpacas grazing in a fertile valley of the Allegheny Mountains just outside of Port Allegany, PA.
We are extremely proud of our herd which is focused on quality colored huacayas. We constantly strive to improve the quality of our herd and to maintain diverse bloodlines. Every breeding and every addition to our herd is carefully considered with improvement of the breed in mind. Our champion and ribbon winning herdsires and solid foundation females are the basis for our successful breeding program. All of these decisions made it possible for us to earn the AOA Classc Cup at the 2015 Fleece Conference in Denver. This accomplishment is directly related to good decisions, patience and a little bit of luck. Our focus is on outstanding black and grey alpacas but we have many other colors as well. Be sure to check our listings to see our line-up of black and grey champions. In 2021 our small farm earned the coveted AOA National Color Champion banners on 3 of our herdsires.
We strongly believe in the future of the alpaca industry. Because of that we are active members of AOA, PAOBA, EAA, MAPACA. In fact, Carol was a member of the PAOBA BOD for 8 years and retired after her second year serving as President. She is currently a member of the JTCC (judge training and certificaiton committee) for AOA. We also believe in education. Our constant desire for updated information is quenched by attending seminars and hosting them at our farm. From husbandry and nutrition to fiber and pasture management, we believe it's all important to the health and well-being of our alpacas. Check our calendar for workshops and seminars here at the farm.
Our customers become friends and are happy to provide references. We feel that the success of our customers reflects on us. It's helpful for buyers to have goals and a plan in mind. Whatever your alpaca goals and desires, we will do our best to help you fulfill them. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your options.
OUR LISTINGS It is said that they're ALL for sale. While this is true, prices do vary depending on current situations like show accomplishments and stage of gestation. For this reason we have chosen to list our alpacas under breeding stock where prices do not show. Please contact us for availability and current pricing.
