Our Start:
We first saw alpacas at the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex in Harrisburg, PA, at the MaPaca Jubilee.  At that time, I had just retired from a high-stress job with a Fortune 500 company.  I was helping Doris manage Metropolitan Medical, Inc., a small "mom and pop" private ambulance and wheelchair van service which we owned.  Metro Med provided first aid and emergency medical services for sporting events and other large gatherings...like events at the Farm Show Complex.

We had been planning to sell Metro Med after our younger son graduated from college.  We wanted to slow down and enjoy the 16 acre farmette we had purchased several years before.  The rest is history!  On October 5, 2001, we started Bent Pine Alpaca Farm with three Peruvian high-quality Suri females.
