Windmill Crest Farms is a family enterprise located in south central
Texas. From breedings, the delivery of new crias, to showing, shearing,
cleaning and processing fiber and weaving, alpacas are our life and our
Joe was born and raised on a homestead farm in southern Idaho where they raised lots of livestock. We both have a real appreciation for what it means to live life connected to the land and its use through agriculture. As young adults we spent 30 years dragging around in the Navy and neither of us would ever have imagined this farm, but today we can think of no better existence. Raising alpacas has presented us with a wonderful business opportunity as well as a chance enjoy to our retirement in a truly unique and magical environment.
Currently 50 +/- alpacas call Windmill Crest Farms home. We have animals covering most colors of the alpaca fiber rainbow. In the years since we began to breed these amazing creatures, we have bred and purchased some of the best alpacas we could find. Our herd now reflects our high standards and hard work.
Our herdsires and their offspring have won numerous awards at local, regional levels. The recent addition of a Snowmass herdsire to our stud line will only improve this effort. Our foundation females come from award winning bloodlines with a strong emphasis on animals of quality not regional descent. Emphasis on quality along with our steadfast commitment to service and support allows us to offer our clients wonderful animals, products and customer service before and after the sale. We will happily provide references, when requested.
Whether you are looking for breeding stock or just want to see these gentle and intelligent creatures first hand, we welcome visitors to our farm year round.
There are many local lodging choices within 15 miles of the farm along with several B&B’s that we can recommend if you're traveling and would like overnight accommodations. Stop by and visit us in our little piece of Texas paradise.
