Alpacas in Texas
Cibolo Creek Alpacas is a small family farm operating in the Hill Country of Central Texas, approximately 30 miles from the cradle of Texas independence in San Antonio. The farm was established in the beautiful Hill Country in 2004, when Suzanne Baker and George Sanford purchased their first two females and began the fulfillment of a better life style and building a future in the Alpaca industry.
Interestingly, the thought of raising any animal was somewhat foreign to Suzanne and George when moving from Houston with one small dog into a rural area, just to get away from the City. Similar to many other people, the development of a hobby that involved animals was natural in this setting and Suzanne developed a love of horses and became an avid rider. Next, Samantha a lovable yellow lab was added to the family, and somewhere along the way the apprehension of raising animals gradually slipped away.
The journey into the world of Alpacas began slowly, with Suzanne starting to research the idea of alpacas, local farms and the overall industry. The first visit to an alpaca farm/ranch provided an overload of information, excitement, a fascination with these wonderful animals and certainly, has with many of you, a slight apprehension of the business potential. As the interest increased, more and more research resolved lingering doubts. Our CPA assisted in answering the financial and tax questions and the only question left was not if, but when, and where to purchase.
