Yacka Ridge Alpacas was set up in 1992 by Jolyon and Kerry Porter, with daughter Brittany now assisting.
The farm is located on the banks of the River Torrens in the beautiful
Adelaide Hills, less than one hour from the city of Adelaide, capital of South Australia.
Started with mainly black animals, we have now moved more towards quality white and light fawn animals in our herd.
By concentrating on these major colour lines, we are free to on-sell any animals born outside these parameters to
breeders interested in other colours such as browns and greys, along with any other animals excess to our breeding aims.
ALPACA SPRING AND AUTUMN OPEN FARM DAYS, HELD EACH YEAR.
Our apologies, but, this year, our next on-farm open day will not be until sometime in late May or even early June.
We will post the date on this page as soon as we are able.
If you have an enquiry to purchase wethers, breeding males or females, please contact us direct to arrange an appointment.
We provide free, no obligation information for anyone considering entering the alpaca industry, or just looking for some guards, or pets for keeping down the grass.
We will have a selection of wethers and females penned for a hands on experience, with many of our 150 animals for sale in various price ranges. From bargain basement pets through to high end stud breeding stock. SPECIAL PRICES ON OLDER GIRLS THAT NO LONGER FIT OUR BREEDING GOALS.
We will also have balls of our own yarn ready for knitting, as well as clean, raw fleece in various colours suitable for hand spinning.
But you can't make it then to pay us a visit, have a look through our web pages and if you see something that takes your fancy, then by all means, give us a call or drop us an email.
We are always happy to have a chat, or answer any questions you might have.
Our farm is located at 1609 Torrens Valley Road (4 Kms from Birdwood on the road to Mount Pleasant).
