The Alpaca Podcast for all things alpaca. Alpaca Tribe is for anyone who feels a connection with alpacas. It is for existing owners, everyone interested in keeping alpacas, people working with alpaca fleece or providing alpaca services, or those who are just alpaca mad.
With our guests, we will look at getting into keeping alpacas; making the most of the ones you have got (and enjoying it); ways to use the fleece, not just store it; opportunities to develop business activities relating to alpacas; and growing in your experience, wherever you are starting.
Each week we will be talking to people like you and to breeders, vets, producers and professionals.
The Alpaca Tribe Podcast is your place for wisdom, guidance and great stories about all things alpaca, from people who know because they have already done it.

Don't you just love breakfast with the alpacas
Listen as I deliver breakfast and enjoy a spring morning with the girls.
Lessons from the pandemic and weaning
What is it that we've learned from the pandemic with a Valley full of alpacas? Routine and rhythm help. Alpacas like their space and there is another day to come.
Alpaca Common Sense
Reasons you should not have alpacas - listen as I try to put you off, in a nice way, so you can make the right decision.
Are your alpacas on mute?
Zoom with your alpacas? If they are muted and have the camera turned off, how do you learn to understand what they might be trying to tell you?
I do not own an alpaca but I may have seen one in person!
I love this podcast because it has a quiet and kind sensibility toward life that I find to be very enjoyable. I can apply these reflections easily to my own.
Podcast 116 emphasizes the coming of spring and separating the weaned young ones from their mothers. A shift in ones own life can be like this. Grief and puzzlement followed by a sense of freedom and a new day. Sunlight. Thank you.
Inspiring and Soothing
Even though I am not an alpaca owner, I find this podcast to be engaging. Steve has a welcoming, yet commanding approach as he dives into each episode. Steve provides plenty of delightfully endearing moments and details about the alpacas, showing just how much he cares about them. You won’t be disappointed.
Insightful and refreshing!
Before I met Steve, I knew nothing about Alpacas. Through his wonderful interviews and personal insights, I get to learn and appreciate the beauty of the Alpaca Tribe.
