Whats up with Rising Sun

Rising Sun

I’m a bit of celebrity around the farm and on social media. My fleece is super soft and luxurious, but even more than that, I’m apparently a one-of-a-kind, perfect specimen of an alpaca! I’m also as lovable as I am handsome, so pop into Shamarra Alpacas for a tour and a pat.

Whats up with Harlequin

Harlequin

A glamorous damsel through and through, I’m a big fan of being groomed well ahead of a photo op (your next selfie on a farm tour). My big eyes look even better when my fleece is on fleek. And I’ve been known to wear the odd denim jacket or hat, depending on the season.

But don’t be intimidated by my flair for fashion; I’m always up for a solid cuddle like my other friends.

Whats up with Tornado

I absolutely adore wee human kiddos and alpaca babies alike! Arguably the friendliest of all the furry faces here at Shamarra, I like to get visits and snuggles year-round.

SHAMARRA DIMITRI

Dimitri was a standout from a young cria.  He has grown into a striking male with an excellent frame and robust conformation.  His superb fleece characteristics met our strict criteria for him to be added to our stud male group and he has a number of females pregnant to him.

Dimitri has an exceptionally dense fleece which is very fine and importantly is growing an impressive staple length.  Uniformity of micron is one of the first comments made by the judges in the show ring.  This is a trait that is paramount in our breeding programme.  Brightness is another feature this male exhibits along with a high frequency, “horseshoe” style that is highly aligned.

His qualities have been recognised in the show ring with multiple supreme titles and championship awards presented to him.  We look forward to his first group of progeny in 2023.

Shamarra Alpacas view over Akaroa
  • “It was a wonderful experience. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable, the alpacas are just gorgeous and the scenery was amazing! It’s a great place to visit and we will certainly be back.”

    Trip advisor – October 2021

  • What a sweet discovery this was on our way to Akaroa. Our host couldn’t have been more gracious and whilst we didn’t want to do a tour we did want to support the local vendors. Our host talked us through all merchandise and was so knowledgeable to the point where we spent way more than intended because it was all so beautiful and we are delighted with our purchases. Added to that we got the chance to visit the alpacas and they were so much fun! And we can’t resist thus but Al Packer told us never to get him or his mates up with Banana Llama

    Trip Advisor – Feb 2022

  • “We loved getting up close to the alpacas, they are so cute and fluffy, and they were happy to be patted! The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, she knew all of the alpacas names and was happy to take photos for us. The farm is in a beautiful location with stunning views of the Akaroa Harbour. Tea, coffee, juice and homemade biscuits at the end of the tour was also a very nice touch. This is a must do if you are going to Akaroa!”
