We bought their first alpacas on Columbus Day, 2015 and named our four acre farm in coastal, southern Delaware Nuevo Mundo Alpaca—Spanish for New World.
And a new world it truly was. After growing up and raising our own families in large cities and having no experience in animal husbandry, we completely changed our lifestyle to one closer to nature in an agricultural community. Our first alpacas were patient with their novice caretakers, but by being thoroughly immersed in our new life, we learned volumes about alpaca health, genetics, fiber characteristics and all the things that can be made from this incredible, sustainable fiber.
That’s when Four Acres Living was born. We created Four Acres Living to share with others what we discovered about the extraordinary beauty, softness and luxury of alpaca. And since nature has a vast store of ingredients to create with, Four Acres Living also curates and sells other products that showcase all there is to love about the natural world.
We still operate all of their business on their original four acres. We intentionally keep our footprint small so we can pay close attention to every detail—be it a member of our herd that needs a little extra care or a product made in our unique style, we are personally hands on.
When you purchase from Four Acres Living, you know that you’re bringing home nature at its finest.
