Rick & Connie Bodeker have been involved in the Suri alpaca business for more than 20 years. Connie has a Bachelors degree in Animal Science from the University of Minnesota. Educational emphasis was on production livestock, concentrating on genetics, nutrition, and farm management.
Rick has been a business owner and entrepreneur since the early 1980’s. He has a level-headed approach to the business aspect of the alpaca industry. Rick served on ARI Special Committees and routinely volunteers as Ring Steward at most shows they attend.
Though retired from raising alpacas, we continue to board a few alpacas and keep several pets. We are more than happy to help you understand the Suri alpaca business and can steer you in the right direction to begin your career. There is nothing more enjoyable than spending time with these beautiful animals and discovering the business opportunity they represent.
Available for sale: consultation services, consignment alpacas, companion alpacas, raw fiber, yarn, and garments. We also offer composted alpaca manure fertilizer for avid gardeners. We concentrate on bringing you natural, locally raised products that are produced without harming the animals or the environment.
