Who we are:

Hi, we are Tony and Amy Kemp and we own Alpaca Obsession, LLC. The farm was established in October 2006. We have always had a love of animals. Tony grew up on a 40 acre beef, pig, and chicken farm and Amy showed and trained horses for over 20 years.

We got married in 1995 and moved into our house we built in Sterling, CT. We always knew we were going to have a farm, but not which animals. In early 2000 Tony was helping his dad move some equipment to a job site and saw his first alpaca and brought a picture home.

Well, I guess you could say the rest is history! At first sight we knew we were going to purchase some alpacas.

We knew it would not be easy, as farming is never easy, but do not think it is impossible. If you have somewhere you can put up a great fence along with some sort of shed you have the basic ingredients to start a wonderful lifestyle with a farm. Add a little partnership with some great farms, lots of research, and even more TLC, and you are on your way. Right up front I will tell you there will be disappointments, but we want to help you through that; however the best part will be although the laughter and the joy the farm brings. There is nothing like watching the alpacas in the field, a cria born, pronking alpacas, or listening to the sound of their hum. It has certainly been a cure for the corporate world.

Having a farm is a chance to give back somehow to the world, feel connected with the land and recognize the beauty all around us.
