about us

THE CHAKANA BLUE STORY

We are, Julie and Tim Blake.  Current Australian Alpaca Association members and active participants in the Victorian Eastern Region and wider alpaca community.

Its not hard to describe country living, with great views and relaxed atmosphere.  The alpacas quietly humming in small herds, forming maternal groups.  Each animal has a very unique personality.  We could never return to a suburban block.  With dogs, horses, cattle and goats in our past, the alpacas have truly won our hearts and are now our only livestock.  Easy on the land and fences.  Browsers not grazers.  Tameable yet not needy pets; alpacas ticked all the boxes for us.

A purpose built facility makes owning, breeding and showing these amazing animals a pleasure. We welcome ‘on farm’ visits and have separate accommodation (self contained 2 bedroom cottage available on request).

Alpacas make great companions & pets. They are suitable for both broad acreage and smaller scale hobby farming.  They are well sort after as herd guards with their astounding maternal instincts . Ask us about these unique inquisitive animals, we love to discuss alpacas.  Feel free to contact us.  We pride ourselves in actively mentoring where we can, with active after sales support.
