Greetings from Hickory Wind Farm!
Thank you for visiting the HWF website! Our picturesque ridge-top farm is located in the beautiful coulee region of southwest Wisconsin (about 22 miles east of La Crosse & 9 miles northwest of Sparta WI). Whether shopping for alpacas or looking for that perfect accessory in The HW Farm Shoppe, visitors to the farm are provided with a scenic country drive and a wonderful view.
Our first huacaya alpacas arrived at the farm in October 2004 and we purposefully maintain a smaller herd to insure that all of our animals receive quality daily attention. Whether purchasing breeding stock or fiber/pet quality alpacas, our customers can be assured that HWF alpacas are healthy, in good condition, and well-mannered. In continually seeking to improve fiber quality while maintaining correct confirmation, we carefully select the hersires we use for breeding. As a result most of our herd can claim award-winning genetics and many are award-winners themselves.
Although selling alpaca fiber products was not in the original plan, The HW Farm Shoppe has evolved to become a primary destination for alpaca yarn & roving, alpaca socks, and a variety of other finished alpaca products. The HW Farm Shoppe is open for our farm events and "easily" open by appointment. Regular hours are scheduled on Sundays from October through January.
Whether you are interested in shopping for fine alpaca products or interested in the alpaca industry and 'maybe' purchasing quality breeding alpacas or fiber males, please contact us to arrange your farm visit. We look forward to seeing you soon!
