Maggie’s Brook Teresa Ann (aka, Tess). Tess is one of three alpacas who came to us in July of 2017 from Tuscany Valley Alpaca Farm in Baskerville, Virginia. She is a beautiful dark silver gray alpaca with outstanding genetics. Her sire is Emerald Farm's Orlando Cloud, a former gray color reserve champion. Teresa's birthday is May 21, 2012 and is the half-sister of Isabella. In September of 2017, Tess was sold to her new owners, Dick & Joanne Bower. Tess will continue to live with our herd, as the Bowers are agisting Tess at H.A.R.
Maggie’s Brook Isabella (aka, Isabella). Isabella is another of the three alpacas who came to us from Tuscany Valley Alpaca Farm in July of 2017. Like her half-sister, Teresa Ann, she is a dark silver gray alpaca. Isabella arrived with her cria, Black Rock, alongside. We will plan to use her as a breeding female and excited to produce another beautiful alpaca like her first son. Isabella's birthday is May 20, 2013.
Spencer's Black Aussie Rock (aka, Black Rock). Black Rock arrived in July of 2017 alongside his dam, Isabella, from Tuscany Valley Alpaca Farm in Virginia. He is a stunning true black young male, who we expect to bring to show in the near future. He is still adjusting to his new home but we expect he will fit in well with the other boys in the boys' pasture. Black Rock's birthday is October 17, 2016.
Windjammer of Camden Hills (aka, Jammer). Jammer will be one of our herdsires and produces incredible volumes of silky soft fiber. He came from Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm in Unity, ME. His color is light brown and he turned three years old on July 1. Although he is the leader of the boys pasture, he has a calm and quiet disposition. We are hopeful Jammer will be ready to breed in 2017 and we plan to introduce him to one or more of the girls. Jammer is also unique in that he has become fast friends with Tilly, the Basset Hound. They are quite a pair to see exploring the boys' pasture.
Sir Erik of Spudland (aka, Erik). Erik is a great companion alpaca within our herd. He has beautiful two‑toned fiber of dark fawn and white. He turned 9 on July 12th and is from Spudland Alpaca Farm in Blaine, Maine. Erik produces huge quantities of super soft fiber as you can tell from his photo. He is a gelding and serves as an ambassador to visitors of our farm. We are hoping to train Erik for animal assisted therapy duties in 2017. Although a permanent resident of Harvard Alpaca Ranch, he is owned by Amy’s parents, Bob and Nancy Dunn.
Northern Solstice Laelia (aka, Lia). Lia is one of our dams who also comes from Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm. She is a light rose grey and turned 7 on July 4. She has proven to be a great momma and her offspring are as unique as she is. Lia is very friendly and enjoys contact with people. She has been one of the easiest to get to know since the herd's arrival. We are hoping to breed Lia in 2017 for a birth in 2018.
N Solstice Sumitra (aka, Sumi). Sumi has become the leader of the girls, although she rarely strays far from her best friend, Lia. Her color mixture is a medium brown and true black. She is also a seasoned momma, previously having three cria while at Northern Solstice. Her daughter, Adelaide lives with our friends at Blue Alpaca Ranch in Belfast, Maine. Sumi often prefers not to be approached by people, but she can be enticed to eat grain out of hand, when the mood suits her. Sumi was bred to a true black alpaca named Cooper in 2016 and gave birth to Nacho in July of 2017.
Ignacio (aka, Nacho). Nacho is the cria of Sumi, born on July 10, 2017. He is the spitting image of his mother and doing very well. Early inspection of his fiber shows it to be a dark, rich brown color with wonderful density and crimp. We expect he will join the show circuit in 2018. Until then, he will be busy growing and playing with his best friend, Georgie!
Janeo’s Ivanhoe (aka, Ivan). Ivan is the youngest of our original herd of alpacas, born August 24, 2015. He is a beautiful light fawn color, when you first look at him he is like the color of champagne and his fiber glimmers in the sunlight. He comes from Northern Solstice Alpaca farm and is the grandson of the renown Space Cowboy. Ivan did very well at show in the Spring of 2017. His fiber is exceptionally soft and crimpy and he makes lots of it! Ivan began his breeding career in 2017 and is expecting his first cria in the summer of 2018. He is currently standing stud - contact us if you'd like to bring Ivan's genetics into your herd.
Spudland’s O’Charlie (aka Charlie). Charlie comes to us from Spudland Alpaca Farm and is another companion/fiber animal. He is white geld and produces beautiful bright white fiber, ready to be spun into yarn. Charlie is very vigilant and will notify the entire herd with an alarm call if he detects anything that isn't quite right. He also prefers to keep an eye on the girls most of the time.
Spudland’s Princess Ava (aka, Ava). Ava is another of our dams who is also owned by Amy’s parents, but will be living at H.A.R. She has beautiful snow white fiber and will be turns 7 in August. Ava made a big impression with us when we were visiting Spudland that led us to making her part of our herd. While all the other girls left the barn, Ava hung out with us and enjoyed contact with people. As she adjusts to her new home, she is becoming friendlier each day.
Spudland’s Natalie. Natalie is our fourth female eligible for breeding. Her big beautiful eyes match her gentle personality and inquisitive nature. This very special girl is light fawn in color and turned 6 in June. She is already a seasoned momma having given birth to a medium fawn boy in 2014. Natalie was bred to a black and white alpaca named Archimedes in 2016 and gave birth to our first cria, Georgie, in July of 2017.
Georgietta (aka, Georgie). Georgie is a very special alpaca as she was he first cria to be born at Harvard Alpaca Ranch. She is the daughter of Natalie and her sire is N Solstice Space Cowboys Archimedes. Georgie was born on July 2, 2017 and seems to have the same gentle disposition and beautiful light fawn fiber as her mother. Georgie loves to charm visitors with her enormous brown eyes and lovely, long eyelashes. She also enjoys testing her legs against her buddy, Nacho, all around the pastures!
Spudland's Sydney. Sydney came with our second group of three alpacas that arrived in October of 2016. She is Leanne's half-sister and was born on August 6, 2011. Sydney has super fine fiber and lots of it. She loves her new "niece" and "nephew" Georgie and Nacho and can often be found watching over them.
Spudland's Leanne. Leanne came with our second group of three alpacas that arrived in October of 2016. She is Sydney's half-sister and was born on June 1, 2010. She is an unproven female with beautiful white fiber and a friendly disposition. Her dad is a light fawn alpaca named Katahdin Ridge Fenway and her mom is a white alpaca named Peruvian Hera.
Spudland's Duchess. We are very sad to announce that Duchess passed away very unexpectedly in January of 2018. Duchess came with our second group of three alpacas that arrived in October of 2016. She was a beautiful white alpaca, that despite her rather large size, was gentle and sweet. She will be missed.
Tilly. Tilly is our farm dog. We adopted Tilly back in November of 2008 and she moved to Harvard with us in 2015. She is a typical basset hound - rarely listens (unless food is involved), thinks she is in charge, and enjoys rolling in stinky things. When the alpacas first arrived, she was quite skeptical, but she has become accustomed to the herd and is quickly becoming good friends with Jammer. Jammer will follow Tilly through the pasture, seemingly asking her to play...the girls aren't sure what to make of her.
