Building an alpaca business in Ireland 42


Joe Phelan of K2 Alpacas near Dublin has made great progress in growing his alpaca business – here he shares his journey and approach. He now can identify something like 50 different income streams from alpacas.

He spent two years researching before making the jump. Raised in a town he worked on a farm until his mid-teens during school holidays. The more research he did the more he couldn’t believe how superior they seemed to be in every area.

From day one they alpacas had to be self-sustaining. He only grows as much as the business allows him to grow.

They are well known for alpaca trekking and presseco but in addition to agri-tourism, fleece products and animals sales play their part.
