2012 Year of The Farmer

Jane Hicks at Year of the Farmer launch

On 12th October 2011, Sydney saw the launch of 2012, being named "Year of the Farmer".  Coolawarra are exceptionally proud to be a part of this launch, representing the Australian Alpaca Association, joining the Governor General, Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC, which was attended by dozens of dignitaries and invited guests.

Two of our male alpacas (CH Coolawarra Bravissimo & CH Coolawarra Wilbathara Rising ET) were showcased at the event in representing Alpaca Farming, an emerging farming industry that continues to experience phenomenal growth around the country. Proud to be an active part of this initiative and the farming community generally, particularly as alpacas are fast becoming a very real alternative  to traditional sheep and cattle farming, and there is even a developing quality meats market for this unique and versatile animal.
