Welcome to Big Red Acres! 
Alpacas with quality genetics and their exotic products
at affordable prices! 

Big Red Acres is a small alpaca farm just 30 minutes north of Boston in a quiet, rural setting in Andover, Massachusetts, and is convenient to all of New England.  You can learn more about us by going to About Big Red Acres.

Alpacas are graceful, curious, easy to care for, inexpensive to maintain, and relatively disease-free.  Alpaca ownership not only gives the opportunity for a source of revenue, but also provides an enjoyable, rewarding lifestyle.  Learn some of the basics about alpacas by clicking on Did you know?, and find out why alpacas have been called "the world's best livestock investment" by visiting Investing 101.

Big Red Acres' mission is to breed and lovingly raise the finest quality alpacas in many of their 22 natural colors while maximizing enjoyment of the animals and the outdoor lifestyle they promote.

Although Big Red Acres is not a large farm, we are fortunate to have alpacas with some of the most well-known bloodlines in the industry, and are working to continuously improve the quality of our herd.  Click on Alpaca Sales & Products to see the diversity of our farm's fine genetics.

We offer great quality alpacas and their exotic fleece products at very reasonable prices.  For prospective alpaca owners, Big Red Acres will provide the individual attention and guidance needed to ensure a solid start to your operation.  To see our current listing of alpacas for sale, click here.
