Llamas are still very
much a rare breed in the UK, yet if you surf through these web pages you will see that
there are many interesting and valuable as
well as fun uses for llamas.
Each one of these uses represent a sound market and a valid reason why llamas can offer a
profitable business venture with a viable long-term future.
In fact, each application offers a potential market far
above the total existing U.K llama population.
Add all the applications and potential
markets together and it is easy to see the positive and profitable opportunities...
Taking the leisure market alone:
... Look at the
numbers of horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep etc which are kept in small
numbers for personal pleasure, hobby farming, agro-tourism etc, yet
add up to hundreds of thousands in total: then one can see that with perhaps
two to three thousand llamas in the UK at the present time, llamas have huge
commercial potential for growth.
Equally llama trekking ventures are setting up in various areas of
Britain and enjoying great popularity yet there are still a huge
number of areas not yet served by such ventures.
We believe that the more people who enter the
industry, the greater will its potential become through increased public awareness,
marketing, and geographic spread. For this reason although breeders ourselves, we are
committed to helping our clients who wish to enter into breeding llamas commercially and
will be pleased to give as much help and advice as we can.
Apart from breeding llamas to meet the many
potential markets, we have supplied llamas to, and been very involved with, the setting up
of llama trekking ventures and this is another area in which we would be delighted to
help. Good trekking llamas owned by helpful, good value trekking centres are first class
ambassadors for the breed and so - again - we are delighted to help and give the benefit
of our experience freely to our clients.
Remember that llamas offer low key, low cost management
