About Us - Silverstream Alpaca Stud
Silverstream Alpaca Stud is owned by Kit and Sheryl Johnson and is located 30 minutes north of Christchurch near Kaiapoi.
Our three children, Charlotte, Lloyd and Elliott have all been involved with alpacas. Charlotte owns her own small herd and our son Lloyd is now a fully qualified AANZ judge.
Our elite herd comprises white, light fawn and grey huacayas and includes some of the best genetics imported from the USA and Australia. Back to back wins at the 2007, 2008 and 2009 National Alpaca ExpoÕs, not to mention the historic win by Silverstream Czar in winning Supreme Champion Animal of Show at the 2007 New Zealand Royal have been some of the emotional highlights for the Johnson family.
Kit & Sheryl operates three Ministry for Primary Industries approved quarantine facilities and are regular exporters to Europe, UK and Taiwan. Kit is currently President of the Alpaca Association NZ Inc and has been Vice President for five years, chairman of the Marketing & Promotions subcommittee for eight years and chairman of the working group for the National Alpaca ExpoÕs for five years. Kit and Sheryl have been involved with alpacas since 2000 and are now full -time farming. We really make an effort to help our fellow breeders and especially those new to the industry.
Silverstream is located 20 minutes north of Christchurch Airport and just 30 minutes north of the city centre.
If you are serious about alpacas and are from out of town, come and be our guests in our new Christchurch Farmstay Accommodation.
