Welcome to NZ Summerhill Alpacas - Specialising in Leopard Appaloosa's and Elite Grey Alpacas

Our Alpaca Farm is located in Fiordland in New Zealand close to the edge of Fiordland National Park. It has spectacular 360 degree mountain views of 4 different ranges.

We are very passionate about 'Spotty' alpacas - in particular the Leopard Appaloosa. We are very proud to have the largest herd of Leopard Appaloosa genetics in the world.

Alongside our strong and sort after Leopard Appaloosa breeding programme, we also specialise in breeding Elite Grey Huacaya. NZ Summerhill offers a large variety of top quality elite greys available for export.

Please feel free to look through the Leopard Appaloosa's and Elite Grey's we have For Sale, under the 'For Sale & Export' section.

We welcome visits to our farm and have a small self contained cottage that can be booked by those wishing to combine a holiday to our outstanding region along with viewing our herd.

If you are interested in Elite Black or Grey Huacaya, please visit our NZ Black Magic Alpacas or NZ Mystic Grey Alpacas websites.

Our Spot Gene

Our herd was purchased from Shirley and Fliss Grant who started with breeding Leopard Appaloosa's. They  discovered through endless research The Spot Gene, enabling precise genetics to be used and perfectly layered to create magnificent leopard appaloosa alpacas.

We are very fortunate to have a 3 year old sire (NZ Summerhill Leopard Kristian) from one of the only homozygous leopard males in the world, NZ Summerhill Leopard Prince, who has created a foundation layer of this spotty breeding programme alongside, his father Ambersun Montage.

At NZ Summerhill Alpacas we have numerous Leopard Appaloosa and Appaloosa stud males from different genetic lines. Having a large selection of top genetics enables us to do selective matings to our Leopard Appaloosa & Appaloosa females in order to create more wonderful masterpieces, with fantastic fleece attributes.

Our Goal is to bring top quality Leopard Appaloosa & Appaloosa Alpacas to the forefront of the alpaca industry in New Zealand, as well as promoting Leopard Appaloosa's internationally.

"Making a good decision was easy and very enjoyable.
After the sale Shirley kept me informed about the condition of the alpaca`s and even during theire quarantain she visiste the alpaca`s weekly and send my photo`s. So now I have on my farm, two (very healthy) Leopard Appaloosa females (both pregnant) and a very stunning stud to be! 

Thank you Shirley for this fantastic experience! Great regards and hug!" - Anita Huls

"It was very easy to work with Shirley. Really fast responses, detailed photos and good service till the alpaca left quarantine. They really care about their alpacas.

As it is always a risk to buy alpacas just by photos we were even happier when we saw NZ Black Magic Whittaker the first time. He looks like he did on the photos and the fleece was even better than we expected. "  - Marcel Benz

"Our purchase of NZ Black Magic Zhar ET was so easy with Shirley organising delivery while we were still there. Zhar has proved to be everything Shirley described and we loved dealing with Shirley and will be back in future to NZ Black Magic to look for future sires for his progeny. " - Jessie Haanan
