About Big Red Acres

We began this adventure with our first alpaca purchase of three juvenile males in late 2005.  After gaining a year of valuable experience in the field and the show ring, we decided to fully embrace this lifestyle and opportunity and invest in some females.  Our first birth on the farm was September 2007 and from there grew to a well-established herd with some of the finest genetics in the industry.  After retiring in 2019 we no longer breed these fine animals and have reduced our herd to a very manageable 2 males.

Like any reputable alpaca farm operation, Big Red Acres has been a member of recognized industry associations such as Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA), New England Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (NEAOBA), and The Alpaca Registry, Inc. (ARI).  Jen chaired the nominating committee for the NEAOBA Board of Directors for several years.  All of our alpacas were registered, meaning that we have a documented pedigree for each animal.  You can learn more about these affiliations by going to our Links page.

Our contact information is shown at the bottom of each page, and the best way to reach us is to either email us as or leave a voice message at 978-475-8913.
