All of our alpaca meat is from animals born and raised here at Northwoods Alpacas Farm. Our alpaca meat is processed, inspected and stamped by local butchers who are licensed to sell exotic meats.
Alpaca meat is still relatively new to the American culinary landscape. However, outside of North America from Australia, New Zealand, and Europe where alpaca meat is viewed as a delicacy, to South America where it has been a staple for thousands of years, the idea of alpacas as a protein source is not a new one in the least.
Alpaca meat is not only rich in proteins, but also low in fat. It has the lowest level of cholesterol of any meat. It is a mild red meat which is tender, extremely lean and described by some as almost sweet. Its flavor closest to beef without the fatty aftertaste. Alpaca takes on the flavor of what it's mixed with making it a chef's favorite!
