November 28, 29 & 30 is the opening weekend at Hann’s Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon, and there’s something new this year. The alpacas of Sauk Creek will be greeting visitors. While Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in attendance, the reindeer couldn’t make it so Sebastian, Soloman and Roy will be standing in for them.
Be sure to stop by and give the boys some carrots. You’ll also find warm alpaca socks, gloves, scarves, yarn, ornaments, etc. for sale.
Welcome to Sauk Creek Alpacas, now celebrating its 14th anniversary. We breed and raise some of the finest huacaya alpacas in the Midwest. Our alpacas—each with his or her own unique and distinct personality—receive individualized attention and care. With a calm disposition as one of our main breeding goals, we make sure each and every animal is easy to handle.
A very special herd. Conveniently located just south of Madison, Wisconsin, midway between Chicago and Minneapolis, Sauk Creek Alpacas began in 2000 with a dam and her cria. After seven years of agisting, we moved to a five-acre farm in 2007, just west of Oregon, Wisconsin. Over the years, we have established a herd of quality huacaya alpacas, consisting of award-winning animals from some of the finest bloodlines in North America represented. These include such notables as Peruvian Accoyo Caligula, PPeruvian Accoyo Felix, NWA LTD Accoyo’s Goldsmith, PPeruvian Emilio, Snowmass Legacy Gold, PPPeruvian Royal Fawn, SA Accoyo Royal Avenger, Snowmass Invincible and PPeruvian Guellermo.
Sauk Creek Alpacas focuses on breeding alpacas with dense fine fiber, calm dispositions and rock-solid conformation. Our efforts are rewarded annually in the show ring with blue ribbons and color championships.
Quick-start your own breeding program. We offer quality breeding stock individually or in starter packages allowing you to quickly get your breeding operation up and running. We work with any budget, and can offer attractive financing options and full reproductive guarantees on all breeding stock. While an ideal herd size for us is around 15, we’re at 21 right now–so we’re offering some amazing deals. We also are happy to work with you to add prize-winning genetics to your current herd.
If you’re just starting out, we can create the perfect package. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’ll help you find it. We provide ongoing support and education to new breeders. We’ll help you set up a fully functioning breeding operation. Our goal is to give you the tools you need to build a top-quality breeding operation.
Meet our herd sires. Sauk Creek Alpacas is home to six-time color champion and Get-of-Sire winner Sauk Creek Sebastian. His offspring are bringing home ribbons and some are beginning their own breeding careers. Our newest herd sire is LondonDairy Royal Crest (Roy) who has earned a reputation of his own. His sire is Snowmass Royal Star who carries fantastic Snowmass genetics that improve density while retaining fineness.
