The rugged Shawnee Hills of southern Illinois are home to a beautiful farm that quietly creates quality suri and huacaya alpacas and fiber.

Welcome to Wisdom of the Fox Alpacas.

We focus on raising a well-balanced herd of quality animals and our dedication shows in our herd’s excellent genetics, fleece and conformation.

We’re proud to have received tangible recognition of our effort to raise animals with excellent fleece. Several of our animals have received significant fleece show wins:

•SSRMT Nevada was Judge’s Choice (over 108 other entries) in the 2010 Suri Network Spin-Off Competition. She repeated Judge's Choice in the 2012 Suri Network Spin-Off.
•WFAM Fire and Ice was Reserve Color Champion at the 2010 Suri Network Fleece Show.
•SSRMT Junebug received the high score in her color group in the 2008 Suri Network Spin-Off competition.
•WFAM Slip Stream took the Brown Color Championship at the 2007 Suri Network Fleece Show and was Reserve Color Champion at the 2007 Ohio Alpacafest.

We also have numerous ribbon winners from the halter classes and even some color and reserve color champions including:

•WFAM Slip Stream - color and reserve color champion
•WFAM Hot-Az-Ice - color champion at six months of age
•WFAM Inca Sun - reserve color champion at his first three shows and first in his class at Nationals

There are hundreds of alpaca farms around the nation. Why work with us?

Honest business practices
•We won’t sell you anything that does not fully meet your needs.
•You’ll get honest, detailed information about every animal and product we sell.

Careful herd management
•Healthy animals produce healthy fiber. Good management produces both.
•Nutrition, especially forage, is a cornerstone to herd health and fiber quality. We will gladly share what we have learned, both our successes and mistakes, so you can apply it to your situation.
•Quantitative data such as skin biopsies and fleece histograms, not show results, guide our breeding program. Ribbons and championships are an added bonus.

Quiet quality
•We won’t fill your inbox or mailbox with endless ads.
•We work constantly to improve the quality and consistency of our animals and fiber.
•We want to help you to succeed with your endeavour, whether it is raising alpacas or creating something from their fiber.

UPDATE: As with many farms, we have decided to drastically reduce the size of our herd. Age is starting to catch up with us. We have some excellent breeding stock, but since we are no longer breeding they need to go to farms that will continue to build on the foundation we have started. Please contact us for more information.

Since our herd is now up for adoption, financing is no longer necessary. We are willing to transport your choice to you if you are within 5 hours (plus or minus) of Carbondale. Practically, that means Chicago area to the north, Indianapolis to the east, Louisville, Nashville and Memphis to the southeast and south, and Kansas City to the west.
