Shillcox Shamrock Lines is a family-owned farm in northeast Wisconsin located south of De Pere. The alpaca farm is nestled in a 211 acre family dairy farm built in 1887. The original barn and farmstead still exist, however the Holstein cows are now gone and today the landscape is peppered with a multi-colored alpaca herd.
Farming has been in the Shillcox family for well over 125 years. Raising livestock and caring for the land are an integral part of their family roots. Raising high quality alpacas for fleece, breedings and to sell is their core business. Several family members support and are actively involved in the business.
Today, they have a thriving farm with 40 Huacaya alpacas. The public is invited to tour the farm. Many school groups throughout the year, FFA, 4-H, knitting clubs and not-for-profit organizations tour the farm and are provided an in-depth education and ‘hands on’ experience. The farm has an Annual Open House each fall inviting the public to tour the farm and meet the alpacas first-hand. Promoting and marketing the herd, the natural, luxurious fibers and products are all part of the alpaca business.
