Our Business Ethos:
We are not about selling you Alpacas; rather to help you understand and famiarise yourself with these adorable animals....should you then decide you want to enter the wonderful world of Alpaca ownership we will help you buy Alpacas according to your requirements, budget and aspiration.....
We would then provide you with outstanding ongoing customer support and guidance on all aspects of welfare and husbandry for as long as you feel the need.....
We hope to be able to welcome you to Temevale at some point in the future. Come along and view our herd with absolutely no obligation...Or, join us for an Alpaca Trekking Experience....
If you haven't the land, time or resources to own an Alpaca, why not consider adoption?!
We have a number of Alpacas currently available for adoption. All monies raised from this arrangement are used to help finance the ongoing costs of managing our herd of adorable animals.
In return for adoption the recipient will be entitled to two half price treks per year and two free farm visits per year. You would receive an Adoption Certificate and a Birthday / Christmas card from your chosen Alpaca. Plus a quarterly newsletter to keep you up to date with activities here at Temevale Alpacas and the progress of your adopted animal.
If you choose an Alpaca for your adoption on the day of your first trek with us you will also get a 25% reduction on that Trek!! Another unique Birthday / special occasion present or simply because, like us, you adore these animals! Our Alpacas are available for adoption at £40 per animal per year.

We are delighted to be able to offer the stud services of Ashwood Judge John Deed to our Temevale portfolio.
JD symbolises everything we are striving to achieve at Temevale. A compact young male with a well proportioned and balanced frame, a fine, dense, very well organised, stylish and highly advanced fleece.
His many achievements during 2016 included Supreme Champion at the Devon County Show and champion and best of British at numerous other shows.
Carrying superb genetics we are hoping he will sire as many supreme champions and prize winning progeny as his sire ....the legendary, multi supreme champion, Valley Alpacas The Diplomat.
JD is available for a small number of external matings this year. Please call or email should you wish to consider the introduction of these superb genetics into your breeding programme.
Are you seriously thinking about starting a new and rewarding alpaca lifestyle?
If so, I am delighted that you have found our website and the service that we are proud to offer to prospective Alpaca owners.
Having bought my first Alpacas in 2009 I remember very clearly the complexity of trying to identify and confirm exactly what I was looking to achieve from Alpaca ownership and, beyond that, choosing which Alpaca breeders to contact to help me make the very important, no vital, first steps.
As per any venture, making the right or wrong decisions at the outset very often determine the success and viability of the venture. Mistakes or wrong decisions at this stage can prove immensely frustrating and expensive.
In truth the vast majority of Alpaca Breeders are extremely keen to help and assist prospective owners. Equally, and understandably, they are keen to sell direct from their herd sales list.
We like to think we are different! First and foremost we are intent on helping prospective owners in the planning, understanding and realization of what is right (or wrong!) for them in terms of Alpaca ownership. This could range from pet ownership of a small number of Alpacas through a broad range of enterprises up to the establishment and development of a large herd of elite animals, with primary focus on fleece quality and improvement, breeding and showing.
At Temevale Alpacas we are proud to offer a free consultancy service to help you:-
Determine exactly why you want to own Alpacas….
Having confirmed and reaffirmed the answer to this vital question we would then be pleased to help you with:-
Identification of the shape and form of your starter herd …Males?, Females? Wethers? Pregnant females? Age and colour etc, etc…..,
Creation (or development) of a Business Plan if appropriate,
Paddock / Shelter / Farm requirements and maintenance,
Husbandry, Welfare and identification of any training needs you may have as a new owner.
Beyond that, we would be happy to assist you in the sourcing and identification of the actual Alpacas to form your foundation herd, and
To offer you ongoing support and guidance on all day to day ownership, welfare and husbandry issues until you feel able and confident to go it alone!
Please feel free to contact us if some or all of the above is relevant to you. We are delighted to ‘talk Alpaca’ and are therefore prepared to offer the above without any obligation on your part...
