We know exactly how you feel.
My name is Janice Buttitta. My husband Tom and I love our animals and all the alpaca people we have met along the way. We can honestly say we have not regretted getting into the alpaca business for even one minute. That said, we understand how intimidating the idea of jumping into a new way of life can be, no matter how exciting it may sound.
You probably have a thousand questions like….
- How do I get started?
- It is hard?
- What’s will my life be like from day to day?
- How do I make money?
- How much money can I make?….
Relax. We’re going to help you every step of the way.
