Stoneleigh Alpaca Stud is owned by Chris and Liz Strack. Stoneleigh is situated just 20 minutes north of Christchurch with the picturesque Southern Alps in the back ground. Chris and Liz purchased their first alpacas in 2004. 

Alpacas do very little damage to the land and therefore they have low impact on the environment. These animals are gentle in their nature and are easy to handle. Alpacas are also relatively low maintenance and, unlike other farm animals, require little input.

Chris is a former President of the Alpaca Association of New Zealand. Liz has worked on several sub- committees including the show committee, National Show working group, Registry Working Group and the Southern Region Committee. 

At Stoneleigh Alpaca Stud our primary focus is on breeding superior white and fawn Huacaya / Alpacas to supply seed stock to the New Zealand and export market. Stoneleigh animals are now in the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Holland, France and Taiwan.
