Our Alpaca Farm
Our names are Paul and Lindy Huber and we want to tell you a little about our unique lifestyle here in the Kentucky Bluegrass Horse Country. Alpacas are our passion at Seldom Scene Farm, but this unique and rustic place is so much more than a business. Paul became the second owner of our property since it was deeded to the Watts family in the Virginia Land Grant. When we married, we “roughed it” for three years in the 1812 log cabin near the main barn, until we built our timber frame house in 1992. We operated our home as a bed and breakfast until our son Bobby was born.
Seldom Scene is adjacent to two other family-owned farms, Journey’s End and End of the World Farms, which give us a total of 400 acres of pasture, meadows, forest, and rugged cliffs as well as nearly 3 miles of river frontage. In addition to our farm animals, there are wild turkeys, fox, deer, raccoons, rabbits, squirrels and waterfowl. We use 2 converted tobacco barns to house our animals. Our Fiber Education Studio and Shop is open for farm visitors, special classes, and by appointment. A small landing strip at Journey’s End is used for Paul’s ultralite “trike” as well as Lindy’s Dad’s Cessna.
Our alpacas “make the farm.” No other livestock animal could have fit in any better here, or given us more pleasure and profitability than alpacas!
Paul owns Central Equipment, a farm and turf implement dealership in Lexington, Kentucky. His business caters to horse farms and homeowners. Paul grew up showing cattle and horses in Indiana, and his hobbies include scuba diving, hiking, riding his BMW motorcycle, and flying an ultralite “trike”. Paul’s experienced eye for conformation has helped us to put together a prize-winning herd of alpacas.
Lindy previously taught special education, but resigned several years ago to be a stay at home mom and raise alpacas full-time. She came to Kentucky from her native Ohio because of horses, but has found that alpacas are far less work, much safer, and more profitable! Lindy loves to spin, knit, and felt the fibers from her favorite animals, and also likes to scuba dive and hike. Lindy has been president of the national Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association and Kentucky Llama and Alpaca Association and was the founder and president of the Kentucky Classic Alpaca Show and Kentucky Alpaca Association.
Our outdoor-loving son, Robert, is in elementary school. He attends many shows with us, and has made many friends at alpaca events. Bobby has owned his own alpaca, and helps in the daily care of the animals.
Our Philosophy and Goals
Having a profitable country lifestyle, raising a worthwhile “product” in a healthy setting, and sharing our knowledge and experience with others; that is what we have accomplished at Seldom Scene Farm. Our goal is to raise North American alpacas of the best possible quality, to provide our visitors with a unique, memorable experience, and to help our clients to be as successful as we have been.
We are active as volunteers and members of the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA), Suri Network, Southeast Alpaca Association, AOBA Show Division, and Kentucky Alpaca Association.
