We are Peter and Susan Goodwin. In 2005, we were living in Marietta, Georgia, a busy area located in the East Cobb suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, where growth, traffic and urban sprawl had started to become a drain on us. A move and lifestyle change were in order.

We looked at several locations, including Friday Harbor, Washington; Margate, New Jersey; and Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It was the rich heritage and bucolic setting of Susan’s hometown that eventually helped us decide to move back to Cleveland, Tennessee...that and the beautiful house we found there. We began renovations in 2005 and moved in June, 2006.

Part of the renovations included adding fencing for our two Australian Terriers, Foster and Abbey. We named our new home Foster’s Trail after our dog, Foster.

While the dogs loved having full run of the five-plus acre pasture behind the house, we realized quickly that something was still missing. The pasture land was beautiful but we wanted to use it for a business that would be profitable and enjoyable. The land was unsuitable for horses and cows. While looking for alternatives, we saw an article in the local newspaper, the Cleveland Daily Banner, titled “Alpacas in fashion on the farm – and runway.” The article went on to tell about lovely animals, a sound business, and potential for significant income.

From our subsequent investigations, we fell in love with these adorable animals and that was the beginning of Foster’s Trail & Alpaca Farm in May, 2007.

We started our alpaca farm with two bred females and one gelding. By August of that same year, our herd had grown to nine alpacas. Now, the herd is much larger and includes genetics from industry leaders including 4Peruvian Legacy, PPeruvian Augusto, PPeruvian Caligula, PPeruvian Victor, PPeruvian Felix, Peruvian Hemingway, Snowmass Matrix, Accoyo America Polaris, and PPPeruvian Royal Fawn. They are frequent winners in the show ring and our foundation females sport numerous champion banners as testament to their supreme quality. The herd is truly amazing to see.

More crias arrive each year. Foster has plenty of friends, and we have never looked back! Browse the pages of our website, or better yet, give us a call, and come visit Foster’s Trail and Alpaca Farm.

Foster’s Trail & Alpaca Farm boasts an alpaca boutique full of beautiful roving (perfect for spinning on a wheel or spindle), exquisite yarn and a complete line of fantastic alpaca clothing. Call for current store hours or to schedule a time to visit!
