About Us


Alpacas have been a fantastic fit to our lifestyle.  We began with an initial herd of seven in the fall of 2007, and have doubled in size since that time.  Both of us still work off the farm for the time being.  Dan is a Horticulturist graduating from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, as well as an ISA Certified Arborist.  He has worked for the City of Moncton as the Parks and Grounds Supervisor for the past ten years.  Melanie, a fourth generation farmer, also graduated from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College specializing in Animal Science, and went on to complete her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.  She currently practices as a Veterinarian in Moncton and Salisbury.  


Our diverse agricultural and horticultural backgrounds have assisted in our abilities to manage our growing herd, as well as to provide ongoing support and mentoring to our valued clients.   


We look forward to meeting you!

Dan & Melanie Hicks
