Welcome to Thunder River Farm in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, just south of Harrisburg in the Cumberland Valley. We raise premier suri alpacas and wooly tibetan imperial yaks.

At Thunder River Alpaca Farm, you'll find the highest quality animals. We have some of the industry's most desirable bloodlines. When we started, we only purchased premium bloodlines so that we could produce and raise the best quality animals. Many of our suri alpacas are champions and are producing champion offspring. Our tibetan imperial yaks are all IYAK registered.

We are involved in every aspect of the alpaca and yak industry including breeding, stud service, boarding, sales, financing, meat, fiber and clothing and accessories. Visit our farm store for a wide selection of yak and alpaca clothing and accessories.

Our goal is to help you understand the alpaca and yak businesses. If you plan to start an alpaca or yak herd, we will support you every step along the way in your new adventure and lifestyle while sharing our experience, knowledge and resources. When you purchase animals from us, we will help you with farm layout, pasture management, herd health knowledge, training, showing, birthing, medications, what products you need to get started, parasite control, harvesting the fleece, etc.

As ambassadors for the alpaca and yak industries, we are members of the Alpaca Owners Association, the Suri Network, the Alpaca Registry, the Pennsylvania Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association, the Mid-Atlantic Alpaca Association and the International Yak Association.

Alpaca and yak farming is a lifestyle choice with benefits and opportunities for the whole family. They can add a dimension to family life that many find are missing these days. Farming is fun, relaxing and a potential source of income.

Stop by for a visit. Our alpacas and yaks are waiting to see you!

Pet Quality Alpacas - $500

If you are looking for a pet alpaca, come see us as we downsize our herd! Now these aren't your typical pet quality. Most of them have won ribbons at shows and their fleece is phenomenal but not breeding quality.
