The Heart of England Alpaca Group

Welcome to the Heart of England Alpaca Group

The Heart of England Alpaca Group was created to bring together alpaca owners across the counties of central England. We provide advice, help and learning through workshops, seminars and social events. We’re also proud to organise two of the largest alpaca shows in the calendar, the Spring Alpaca Fiesta at the end of April and the Autumn Fleece Show in October.

Our membership spans the counties of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Derbyshire, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire and Warwickshire. We have 3 former BAS Chairpersons, 5 current or retired judges and a wealth of experience within the alpaca industry.
More to the point we are a friendly group of alpaca enthusiasts, why not come along and join us.

Spring Alpaca Fiesta 2017

Stacks Image 1009
Once again this year the Spring Alpaca Fiesta will be held at Bury Farm Equestrian Centre and we are delighted that our Judge will be Tim Hey. 
We have a change to the timings, to avoid two long days in the ring.  Arrivals will be on Friday morning and judging will commence that afternoon.
Entries will open on
9th January 2017 and close on 5th March or when the maximum number of entries are received.  
We appreciate that following the results you achieve at the BAS National Show, you may wish to change the alpacas you have entered.  Therefore, you will be able to substitute animals but the total number you entered originally, must remain the same.  We will not accept withdrawls, except due to illness under the usual conditions, and any additional entries will be subject to the total number of entries received.

Spring Alpaca Fiesta 2017 Sponsorship

An excellent opportunity to promote and showcase your business at one of the largest alpaca shows in Europe.

Shearers & Mills etc.

By no means an exhaustive list of contacts, but one that will be added to over time to provide a central reference point for old and new HoEAG members

Autumn Fleece Show

The fleece show this year was judged by Mary-Jo Smith and Val Fullerlove
