Guardian Llamas For Sale
Llamas make excellent guardians for many different types of livestock. Although most often placed with sheep, we have also sold llamas who are also successfully guarding cattle, goats, alpacas, miniature donkeys, and even chickens.
All of our guardians listed for sale have shown us protective, attentive characteristics and are, in our opinion, fit to be protectors. The llamas listed below are up to date on worming, halter/lead broken, and come guaranteed for 4 weeks after introduction to their charges.

Cherokee would make a great guardian female. We brought her to our farm as a production female but after two still borns in a row, we unfortunately removed her from our breeding program. Cherokee mourned the loss of her two cria for weeks on end. We cannot put her through another try, but know she would do best in a life where she can be a "mom".
As mentioned above, Cherokee is extremely maternal. She dotes around on all the baby llamas in our fields and keeps a watchful eye over our sheep.
Cherokee is not overly friendly. She is easy to halter, lead and shear, but is not in your face at all. She is easily managed and very respectful.
Cherokee would do best on a smaller farm where she will get the attention she deserves and the right people to give her a snack over the fence. She would be well suited for sheep, goats, or alpacas.
All llamas sold from Namaste Farm come with a halter and lead rope. Cherokee is up to date on all regular shots, vaccinations and toenails.
Cherokee is priced at $600.
Testimonials from previous customers:
"Nick is very knowledgeable about llamas, and he has been great with follow up support on the guard llamas I bought. He genuinely cares about his animals, and it shows. I would recommend that anyone who is looking to buy a llama contact Nick at Namaste Farm." - Melissa Wuben, Oak Creek Farm
"We loved our experience buying our guard llama "Moose" this past spring (2016) from Nick. It's always a great pleasure to find people passionate about the animals they raise. It is even more impressive when those farmers are open to sharing knowledge of their profession with both the community and their customers. From showing our kids how to approach a llama (and get kisses) to helping us out whenever we had questions. You will love your experience." - Josh and Emilly Brodeur, Brodeur Family Farm.
"Nick was so helpful when we decided we were interested in getting a llama for our farm. He let me visit his farm in Alburnett and was very patient with my hundreds of questions. When it was determined Viva was the right fit for our farm's needs and my novice experience; he was very accommodating in transporting her and verifying we had everything she needed. Viva is a wonderful addition and always a source of comfort for her charges. She also brings some comedic relief. Nick continues to be a part of our lives through his shearing route, which is a wonderful service. If we ever decide to add to our pack, we will definitely contact Namaste Farm first." - Kim McWilliams
"When we were looking for a guardian llama for our small herd we were referred to Nick. He was able to find us just the right one for our particular situation. And his help didn't stop at the sale, when our llama was sick he went the extra mile to help us get her back on her feet, literally." - Scott Hamilton
"We have been buying our guard llamas for years from Namaste Farm and have honestly never been
disappointed! Not only are they great guards and healthy llamas, but I know I’ll also get a bit of history
of each llama we buy. I also know that if I have questions or problems after the sale, Nick will be there to help me figure things out. There isn’t a better source for llamas – when we need another llama, Nick is the guy to call, and we will continue to do so even now that we’ve moved out of state. Thanks so much!"
