early 1850's Round Hill has been an established farm in Mount
Vernon, Ohio. Six generations of the Curtis family have called
Round Hill home. During the 1950's the farm's best hay field
gave way to a school and playground. This also took a very
large three-story brick horse barn. Fortunately, the banked
dairy barn was left and now serves our alpacas very well,
as it generally remains cool during the summer heat.
by 57 acres, we have ample pastures with large trees for our
alpacas to roam and relax. We also make our own hay and have
a small beef cow/calf operation. John has owned and operated
his own trucking company for 25 years mainly involved with
saw alpacas in Michigan at "fiberfest". After purchasing two
llamas, we joined an Ohio Llama Association. After attending
a meeting the group held at a farm which was breeding llamas
and alpacas, we decided to get started raising alpacas.
we started our "herd" with a bred female huacaya, her female
cria and two pet quality males. We really enjoy the aplacas
and find them very easy to care for livestock. Of course,
the crias are the most fun and their fiber so incredibly soft,
you will just have to visit and touch for yourself.
