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.
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.
