Welcome to Carolina Alpaca Breeders and Owners
INSIDE THE ALPACA INDUSTRY VIDEO
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..
News & Events
CABO participated in the Southeast Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF) October 30-November 1, 2015 and held annually near Asheville, NC. As one of the benefits of membership, farm members may contribute their products to sell through the CABO store, which is managed by the CABO board and staffed by CABO volunteers. This year, 10 member-farms contributed a wide range of products including felted soaps, alpaca yarns, roving, fleece, alpaca clothing, baskets and stuffed animals. The diversity of products helped to make this year’s sales one of the best. There will be another opportunity to sell items through the CABO store at the upcoming Carolina Alpaca Celebration February 13-14, 2016.
