About Our Alpaca Farming Story | Alpacas of Montana


Discovering The World Of Alpacas

Twenty years ago, in the scenic landscapes of Montana, James and Sarah Budd embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that began shortly after their marriage. With James's extensive background in medicine and innovation and Sarah's expertise in psychology, manufacturing, and real estate, they explored various business opportunities. Their search for the perfect venture continued until a serendipitous moment changed everything.

An article in a magazine and subsequent signs from various sources introduced James and Sarah to the world of alpacas. Despite initial reservations, the unique appeal of these creatures and the potential for a sustainable business intrigued them enough to dive deeper. They researched extensively, connecting with experts and visiting farms to understand the nuances of alpaca farming.

Leaders in Sustainable Textiles

Our commitment quickly turned into action. What started with a modest group of eight alpacas grew into a thriving herd, laying the foundation for Alpacas of Montana. James and Sarah not only became alpaca farmers but also innovators in alpaca wool products, discovering and leveraging the luxurious qualities of the wool to create a line of environmentally friendly and high-quality clothing.

Driven by a commitment to sustainability and quality, James and Sarah pioneered the development of alpaca wool textiles that are both eco-friendly and superior in comfort. Each product is a result of careful craftsmanship and a deep understanding of material science, solidifying their place as leaders in the textile industry.
