Commonside Alpacas is born from the love of these amazing animals,
and what started as a hobby has evolved into a full time business.
Once you start with alpacas you very quickly get bitten by the
bug and before long you realise you are not alone, everyone loving
nothing better than talking about their animals.
Alpacas is based in Barlow (once an old mining town) near to the
Peak District between Chesterfield and Sheffield at the family home
Wellspring Farm, with 40 acres of land and breath taking views over
to Owlerbar and Holmesfield.
Commonside Alpacas is run by
Carol with help from her youngest daughter Georgina and her husband
