Background, history and location of Quicksaw Farm

Quicksaw plantation and the adjoining grazing land cover a total area of just over 40 Acres. The land comprises of 30 acres of good quality grazing and 10 acres of deciduous and mixed woodland. It is situated on the outskirts of Sheffield to the Northeast edge of Ringinglow village.

Quicksaw plantation is shown on early maps and has been worked for commercial timber production within living memory. Our land is only a few hundred yards from the Derbyshire border and the Peak District National Park.

Our site occupies an enviable and picturesque location overlooking Porter Clough and the Mayfield Valley with views of Sheffield beyond.

At the farm, we have a Visitor Centre, Coffee Shop, Retail Shop and our very own Alpaca Experience. We also offer Breeding Consultancy and cater for Education Visits.

Mayfield Alpacas, Our Objectives

Our primary aim is to create a dependable and sustainable rural business as an example to farmers and landowners wishing to diversify from mainstream agriculture. We are developing one of the country's premier quality Peruvian Alpaca breeding herds offering stud services and animals for sale at realistic prices. All our breeding animals are of superfine quality (ranging from 22µ to as fine as 15.9µ) and we aim to improve our overall quality over the forthcoming years.

Alpaca breeding is recognised in the governments "English Rural Development Plan" as an appropriate diversification opportunity for existing farmers. Information on the Alpaca Breeding market is freely available from Mayfield Alpacas and shows that alpaca breeding can provide valuable sustainable revenue for many years to come. Our business also has the added benefit of creating local employment and will form many beneficial links with other local farms and businesses.

Our friendly and individual service includes

  • Unlimited help and advice for both potential and existing owners and breeders of Alpacas
  • A range of Alpacas for sale from pet quality animals to the finest "superfine" breeding stock
  • High quality male Alpacas standing at stud
  • Training courses on Alpaca husbandry, marketing and fibre production
  • An opportunity to raise public awareness of the UK Alpaca industry through first hand experience
