Welcome to Silver Lining Suris. We are a small family farm located in Michigan's Thumb.

During the fall of 2012 I saw an article in the local newspaper regarding an alpaca farm. I saved that article on my kitchen counter all winter long and in the spring of 2013 I called and scheduled a farm tour.

That was all it took!! I was hooked from the first moment I walked on to that farm. I loved the community (anyone I've ever met regarding alpacas has been wonderful), the animals, the softness and warmth of the fiber. I loved how gentle they are and most of all I loved the idea of having our own business.

We went on several farm tours throughout our local community but kept going back to the first one. On my third trip over there Brian said "I can't believe you haven't bought any yet". Well - I took that as permission to make a purchase and left that day with an agreement to purchase our first two pregnant girls.

Our goal is to produce excellent examples of the beautiful suri alpaca with outstanding luster, density and uniform fleece. We are firm believers in fiber testing and have histograms performed on every alpaca we own, so if you are looking to purchase an alpaca from us you will know the quality of your investment.

I need to have surgery and am going to be relying on friends and family to take care of our herd for a few months. Would like to reduce our herd to lighten the workload. Contact me with any inquiries and to make an offer. All offers will be considered.
