Carolina Pride Pastures is an alpaca farm featuring huacaya alpacas and 1 Suri alpaca. 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. They are hoping for 2 more crias this spring!

The farm is protected by llamas and a Great Pyrenees named Elysa.

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.
