Welcome to Quelvehin. A  rambling Alpaca farm in Brittany, France with two luxury holiday Gites, and as of  2007, home to “Quelvehin Alpagas.” Situated in central Brittany, close to the Napoleonic market town of Pontivy, and yet nestled in its own 12 acres of woodland for perfect tranquillity.

We ‘upped sticks’ and moved to France in June 2003, as you do to ‘start a new life’ and all that, but our interest in alpacas started way before that. Our commitment to renovating the stone farm buildings for holiday lets took priority along with re-claiming a lot of the land given over to the ever encroaching army of brambles and nettles. The result of years of neglect.

What seemed like miles of fencing later and all the gates made in our own workshop, we were ready. The alpaca seed, sown all those years ago could now develop and we excitedly took delivery of our first three young males quickly followed by three pregnant females with cria at foot from Pophams in Cornwall. Sound Australian genetics with which to build a herd.

With the addition of another female bought locally in France we had four beautiful cria born on the farm in our first year and with more planned for the summer our herd is steadily increasing.

Quelvehin Alpagas

With a couple of first place rosettes under our belts from the major ‘Alpaca Competition’ in Vierzon, France last year, our foundation stock is well placed to build upon.

But the real rewards come not from accolades but the joy of owning and working with these animals on a daily basis.

If you are contemplating buying your first alpacas it is important to know why you want them, whether for pets, or for fibre, or to initiate your own breeding program as a possible additional income. Here at Quelvehin we welcome your questions or visits. We are always willing to share our experience with you and chat over coffee about our favourite subject.

Pre ownership tuition in all aspects of handling and husbandry as well as after sales back up is given. The commitment to our clients is equal to our passion for our animals.
