Lodi Alpacas at Whistling Valley FarmLodi Alpacas at Whistling Valley FarmContact: Jan Clingman
Our farm sits in the Wisconsin River Valley near beautiful Okee and Lake Wisconsin. We are dedicated to the preservation of the unique, purely Suri alpaca. We strive to produce superior commercial characteristics through our breeding program. Our goal is to see the North American Suri achieve notoriety as the most exceptional Suri in the world. We acquired a herd of Suri alpacas in 2009 and have been breeding, showing and selling alpacas and herd sire services ever since. We also added a farm store to the property and sell luxury alpaca items such as a variety of socks for all types of weather and events, scarves, mittens, gloves, hats, sweaters, rugs, teddy bears, yarn, roving, and kits.
in 2017 we plan to open a new luxury fiber arts center and retail store called La Pachamama. La Pachamama will be housed in a historic barn located on the main corridor that runs through the City of Lodi. Named after the Inca goddess of fertility, La Pachamama is literally translated as “World Mother” but usually translated as “Mother Earth” and signifies the interconnection the goddess has with nature. The new store will be a larger version of Lodi Alpaca’s current on-farm alpaca retail store and will include space for instructional classes in fiber arts, painting, photography, and cooking.
