Welcome to Carolina Alpaca Breeders and Owners

CABO, was created in 2004. This organization has played a vital role in the advancement of the alpaca community in the Carolinas. Our goals include promoting alpaca health care, educational events, shows and exhibits, cooperative efforts to purchase supplies and services — essentially providing a network of activities and support .
We represent big farms and small, newcomers and older-timers, retirees and young families — a variety and diversity that enriches our group. CABO folks are a fascinating, informative, friendly bunch — actual comments we hear again and again from our visitors!  Our members enjoy sharing their individual histories and talking ALPACAS.  You’ll have the opportunity to learn about alpaca history, their ancestors, their ability to thrive with basic good care, their distinctive traits at a farm near you…

With genuine Carolina hospitality, we welcome you..
