We are Jo-Anne and Gary Burton and are located 30 minutes East of Timmins and 15 minutes West of Matheson Ontario. We purchased our farm after having worked and travelled to many different places. Some in northern Ontario and some as far away as Nairobi, Kenya. Our family brought us back to the area and our love of the outdoors and getting back to nature encouraged us to buy enough property to really enjoy life to the fullest.
Our first year on the farm was spent tearing old buildings down and settling in, finally unpacking for the first time in 20 years. We enjoyed raising chickens and reaped the benefits of having farm fresh eggs every morning. A farm, however, isn't really a farm unless you have animals.
During our travels, we had joked about getting alpacas when we finally did settle down but really never imagined that this was achievable.......... Well - "if you can dream it, you can do it" and we did!!! Our second summer, we bought our first 9 male alpacas. What a joy these boys have been. We decided to get males only in order to focus solely on the production of 100% Canadian made quality alpaca products. We strive to educate our surrounding communities and to take full advantage of the stress release that these animals bring to us. We encourage anyone wanting to know more about these wonderful animals to come out for a farm visit or to call us for more information. We are now up to 31 alpacas and still enjoy them thoroughly. We now have males and females and have enjoyed watching the birth of several crias on our farm. Who knows what the future holds for us but one thing is sure it will include alpacas!!
