Welcome to Big Red Acres! 

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 potential 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 was 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 were fortunate to have alpacas with some of the most well-known bloodlines in the industry, and worked to continuously improve the quality of our herd. We have reduced our herd to two male alpacas available for breeding, but not currently for sale.  You can view them on our Open Herd website here.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. 

Closed to Visitors: 

We have downsized our herd & our remaining alpacas can often be seen from the street.  Best spot is about 50 feet to the left of our mailbox where there’s an opening up to the fence.  However, in hot or inclement weather they hide in the barn & can’t be seen.
