The owners of this breeding station have been recognized by European venues devoted to assisted reproduction who buy the standing animals after a prior qualification process.
We went around a vast almond tree orchard which has been integrated to the life of these animals as this is their natural food and because the alpaca guano is used as manure for these beautiful plants.
We visited the venue at the exact moment they were collecting the almonds. Therefore, we had the chance to appreciate the technology used for such purpose with specialized machinery and large colossuses or hoppers.
After everything we learned, we could say there exist two parallel processes: animal breeding and almond plantation. Together, they close a perfect circle that is appreciated at first sight.
Our tour ended in a coquettish room where we could observe the garments made with alpaca wool of various colors and weaving patterns, as well as other accessories with original designs that include copper, another raw material in the region.
We returned to our vehicle with the feeling that we had had an excellent occasion to confirm that when people love their job and the advantages and difficulties of a project are studied, aims are achieved. A real model to imitate.
