Carolina Pride Pastures is an alpaca farm featuring huacaya alpacas. The farm specializes in farm tours, educational seminars, fleece sales, and alpaca fertilizer.

Alicia Holbrook, owner, and her husband, Eric started the farm after Alicia watched a late night show on the animals after the birth of their second daughter. Eric loved the idea, which is rare!!! After they attended a seminar on the animals, they decided to make the investment.

Over the course of two years, Alicia and Eric purchased land, built a barn, and fence. With the help of some great family members, the entire project was completed in November, 2013. Since the arrival of the starter herd of 5 pregnant females in November 2013, the herd has welcomed 9 crias over the past three years.

The farm recently lost their Great Pyrenees, Big Girl. It has been a hard adjustment but the llamas, Dolly and Ed, are keeping the herd protected. Alicia did not want to get another guard dog due to the loss but the deer are getting too close to the fence. Now she is on the search for a new protector.

About the owners:
Alicia graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Business. After over a 10 year career in Human Resources, Alicia gave up her career to be a stay-at-home mom of two smart and beautiful girls. Eric works for a nearby OSB facility where he is a reliability technician.
