Stone Spring Suri Farm LLC is owned and operated by Joe and Teresa Maxwell. Our 70 acre farm is nestled in picturesque Southern Chester County PA, an hour's drive from Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Harrisburg.
We love our country lifestyle, and in 2011 we decided we wanted to see our own animals in the meadows ...But what animals?
I did some research, found alpacas and immediately fell in love. After giving Joe some information and showing him a picture he agreed we should pursue them. We decided to specialize in breeding top quality Suri alpacas. Over the next 10 months we continued to do more research, take classes, visit farms, and finally get our business established and farm ready.
In August of 2012 we moved our foundation herd to the farm. We currently have 19 suri alpacas. They are great animals and are very low maintenance each having their own personality. We have alpacas for sale and offer education, training, and support. We continue learn updated thoughts on caretaking. I have expanded my knowlegde base into use of the fiber by grading and sorting our fleece and using it for farm yarns, rovings, and other products which we sell in our store.
Our farm store is open at home on weekends from Nov. thru Jan. and by appointment. Before that you can find us out in the community on most weekends September thru early November. We love every minute of taking care of our alpacas, and sharing our experience with others. If you are interested in raising alpacas give us a call, we are happy to educate people on the care of the animals as well as setting up your farm.
