In 1994 we bought 28 acres of land in Townville SC. We were vacationing in the area and found an ad in the newspaper for an "old homestead" for sale. We immediately fell in love with the place and paid the initial real estate binder with a credit card check as we had no idea of purchasing land.. For two years we came here on vacations from our home in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate NY. In September of 1996 Joe retired from his job with NY state and we moved here two days later. We have never been sorry.
We have always wanted to do something that would allow the land to pay for itself. In 2002 we learned about alpacas quite by chance from a magazine ad. We have always been animal lovers and fell in love with alpacas. We visited several farms in SC, NC, GA, and VA and attended seminars whenever we could. For one year we asked many questions of our new "alpaca friends" and learned all we could. We are most grateful for their guidance and advice.
ABOUT LUCKY ACRES FARM
Lucky Acres Farm is the home to Gloria and Joe Williams and a numerous amount of livestock. We are a small alpaca farm located in the upstate of South Carolina. Please come for a visit, we love sharing our country life style with others. Located half way between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA in Townville SC.
We are just 3 miles from I-85 at exit 11. Take route 243, go 1.5 miles. Turn left onto Milford Road (the second left), go 1.5 miles. At the stop sign, go straight. This is our shared driveway. We are the log cabin on the right. Our garage apartment is the next building, parking along the fence.
Here we have many alpacas, miniature silky fainting goats and chickens . We also have a very large horse and two big donkeys.
In May of 2003 our first alpacas were delivered. That was a very exciting day at our farm. We purchased 3 pregnant huacaya girls, one intact male, and one gelding. We also have a gelded guardian llama to look after the girls and babies. Our intention is to breed alpacas for quality fiber, excellent health and conformation, as well as a friendly disposition.
We are blessed with 7 happy, healthy alpacas .for people to see in several natural colors. We have health records on every animal. All are ARI registered, have a given name and a microchip for identification.
