About GG’S Alpaca Farm LLC – How Our Company Got Started
We are three siblings who created GG’S Alpaca Farm LLC to share our passion for alpacas. Our first pet was a llama named Montana, who grew up to live a happy life on our farm. Glynis, Giancarlo and Stephen (GG'S) would spend hours chasing and training Montana in the pasture in our front yard.
Our Alpaca Discovery
One day, we saw a miniature version of our llama at a local fair. After seeing an alpaca that day, we were all ready to search to get one for us. We located an alpaca farm in Missouri and purchased three young males.
Although our education started the traditional way in local schools, our mom explored home school as an educational option to keep me challenged. It allowed us to explore activities and hobbies while working towards a high school diploma, such as sports, filming, editing videos for YouTube, and hunting.
Our last addition to the Alpaca farm was Lyla Jane and Amelia. In June 2020, GG’S Alpaca Farm LLC was filed with the state of Kansas by Stephen, Giancarlo, and me. As we pursued our professional careers, we continued to research the alpaca wool industry and learned that the Incas knew it as the “Fur of the Gods.”
Being members of the Cherokee Tribe, we wanted to create an environmentally friendly company. We realized that alpaca clothing made a big difference in keeping us warm and dry compared to other materials.
Mission & Vision
The company’s vision is to bring a high-quality clothing line of alpaca wool from Peru to GG’S Alpaca Farm, LLC in the state of Kansas. Our mission is to educate our customers on why alpaca wool is the best natural fiber to create soft, durable garments.
