About us

Amber Valley Alpacas is owned and run by Ingrid and Terry Ruston. We run around 25 alpacas on 14 acres set in the heart of Derbyshire at Meadow Farm, Heage.

Although the farm is surrounded by rolling Derbyshire countryside, we are just 15 minutes from Junction 28 of the M1, and the airports at Donnington and Birmingham are only an hour or so away. We are blessed with a very large barn where our husbandry and breeding takes place with plenty of space for storing hay, feed and all the farm machinery whilst one wing is used for the storage and grading of fibre.

At Amber Valley Alpacas we like to think that we place every alpaca with the right owner, whether its breeding females, potential stud males or fibre males.

Its important to us that our alpacas are going to a home that will take care of their needs, this is why we provide at least 12 months back up so you are not left in the dark!

  • We care for our animals.
  • We help and advise new owners on how to take care of their new Alpacas with ongoing support.
  • Every Alpaca is vaccinated and microchiped.
  • Registered/Notified with The British Alpaca Society
