Stone Crest Llamas is a family operation owned by Glenn and Joyce Laird and their daughter and son-in law Jody and Gregg Peter. We have llamas at each of our farms. Glenn & Joyce live in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin and Gregg, Jody and their son and daughter live in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. Glenn and Joyce purchased their first llamas from Charlie Hume in 1991 and have been raising them ever since. Our goal is to produce animals with softer fleeces and heavier fiber coverage for products that keep you warm while having that soft touch.
Joyce and Jody (Mother and Daughter) have been spinning and felting for over 15 years. Jody also raises English Angora rabbits. We shear our own animals, wash the wool and do most of the carding. We have expanded our own interest and lover for fiber and offer finished products, roving and yarn from our own animals. We use local mills to keep all of our products made in the US if not by us ourselves. We also teach spinning, felting and other fiber type classes on our farms. We welcome you to check out our products on our website or come out for a visit.
Stone Crest Llamas specializes in suri and silky llamas with correct conformation, heavy coverage and fine, soft fiber. All of our llamas are treated as our pets and have the utmost care. We have breeding stock and fiber animals for sale.

Why would you want to own a llama?
Llamas are very low maintenance livestock. They require far less food and pasture then a cow or horse. Llamas are gentle and easy to handle. They are truly unique animals. You can use llamas for fiber, pack animals, guard animals and simply as a companion. If you are new to llamas or a long time owner stop in for a visit to see our llamas or our products. Below are some of the young girls at our farm in Fort Atkinson.
