Welcome to Waimarie Alpacas

Specialists in breeding and rearing quality white and coloured alpacas, Waimarie Alpacas is home to over 100 alpacas - one of the largest alpaca herds in Hawkes Bay. (Read more about us, our services or go straight to our sales specials page)

We are an easy 20 minute scenic drive south from Hastings city (view map). We have an alpaca cottage on-site featuring an array of alpaca products for sale, from raw alpaca fleece to luxurious items produced from what the Incas called the "Fibre of the gods".

We welcome farm visits, but please give us a call first to arrange a time. Explore our website, and we look forward to meeting you in person so that you too can experience these enchanting animals by getting "up close and personal".

Why Alpacas?

Alpacas are a twofold passionate investment. They are completely endearing animals for one thing, and they carry a high rate of individual financial return which continues to grow, as the worldwide interest in them increases. 

Why Waimarie Alpacas?

We operate to the highest standards of business conduct in all dealings with clients and associates. Our prime objective is to be recognised as 'the best producers of top quality animals in Hawkes Bay' by using the best genetics available. We aim to provide those interested in alpacas with the best possible information and support to enable them to enjoy and successfully farm alpacas.


We have come to learn that the heart of this business is the love and respect we have for these gentle creatures which have, day by day, changed our lives for the better. In return, they look to us for caregiving and protection. We consider this a more than fair exchange.

Please feel free to contact us to learn more about our animals.
