Welcome to the Florida Alpaca Breeders Association

The Florida Alpaca and Breeders Association (FABA) is a group of alpaca owners, breeders, and enthusiasts who have come together as a regional affiliate organization of the international Alpaca Owners Association (AOA).

Our goals are to raise public awareness of alpacas and their luxurious natural fiber. We will share knowledge and resources, plan and organize alpaca events, represent the interests of Florida alpaca owners as an affiliate organization of AOA, and have fun!

As alpaca owners, we understand the unique requirements of raising both Huacaya's and Suri's in Florida. We are dedicated to educating new alpaca owners, breeders, and alpaca enthusiasts in the alpaca husbandry and in promoting the alpaca industry in Florida. With some simple adaptations, alpaca herds can thrive here in Florida, creating a successful investment and rewarding lifestyle.

If you're interested in alpacas, or in becoming involved in raising them or working with their fiber, FABA and its member farms can provide you with information, resources, and a community of like-minded people to work with.

Please browse our site for more information on alpacas, investment opportunities, the alpaca lifestyle, alpacas for sale, farms near you, upcoming events, and lots more about alpacas!
If you have any questions, please contact us. Or contact an alpaca farm near you and we’ll be happy to help!
