Buying Alpacas

Taking the plunge and buying your first alpacas is a big step, so take your time and gather as much information before you make the commitment. We recommend that you join the British Alpaca Society and the Northern Ireland Alpaca Group as the first step in your journey.

Both BAS and NIAG strongly recommends only buying BAS registered alpacas from breeders registered with the BAS. Do not buy unregistered alpacas and ensure that on purchase the ownership will be transferred on the Society register.

All our members must abide by the BAS Code of Conduct for Sale.

Members of the NIAG will happily discuss your plans with you, and help you to find the alpacas that are right for you. You may also wish to consult the BAS handy Buyers Guide before starting your search.
