Welcome to Tierra Prometida--Texas raised, Texas proud
Summer is finally over and we are heading into our birthing and breeding season. We entered our fleeces into several fleece shows this summer and fall and were really pleased with how we did. We had some Judge's Choice Fleeces, some Color Champion Fleeces, Fleeces that won Best Crimp and Best Handle, and even a few that won The Spirit of the Industry Award. This award is especially satisfying to us as breeders because it shows that the alpacas we are breeding are continuing to exhibit the positive traits we are breeding for well into adulthood. We also entered a new, exciting Fleece competition, the Innovative Fleece Assessment. This show differs from a traditional fleece show because it judges the fleece according to the grade of fineness it falls into rather that the age and color. This was an awesome experience and very educational; revealing the positive end use for each of these grades. We also did well in this competition, winning Championships in Grade 0, Grade1 and the Longevity awards for Grade 2 and 3, as well as Spirit of the Industry.
Tierra Prometida Alpacas is the oldest and most experienced alpaca ranch originally established in the Texas Hill Country in 1997. We have learned to deal with the challenges (e.g. the heat) and the blessings (e.g. the mild winters) of this particular environment and enjoy sharing our experience and knowledge of alpacas with other breeders and alpaca enthusiasts. Our mission and our passion at Tierra Prometida Alpacas is two-fold. It is and has always been to develop an exceptional herd of registered alpaca that exhibits elite characteristics in conformation, fleece, and temperament. We are also passionate about their well-being. If you find yourself in Central Texas, PLEASE give us a call and schedule a visit. We may even have the perfect alpaca or alpaca product for your needs.
Hi there! We are a working alpaca ranch with a herd of around 90 alpacas. We get many requests to tour the ranch and hope this scheduler makes it a little easier.
If you are needing an alpaca adventure, this is the place.
