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.
