Rates and Services

Alpaca Barber provides a variety of services throughout the year for your animal's needs.

As of 2-19-2022, we are unable to accept new farms for this year as our limited schedule is nearly full. We advise new farms to seek spring shearing services from one of the many other Michigan shearers. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding.

Farm Call rates are based on diesel prices up to $2.49/gal. We adjust this rate up and down based on fuel costs and certain trips as needed. Please use the following for an estimate based on DIESEL prices for shearing day:

Up to $2.49/gal, $55

$2.50-$2.99/gal, $60

$3.00-$3.49/gal, $65

$3.50-$3.99/gal, $70

$4.00-$4.24/gal, $75

$4.25-$4.49/gal, $80

Over $4.50/gal, for goodness sake lets all hope it doesn't come to this!


Certain long distance drives and out-of-state rates will be calculated differently and are usually around $10 more than the current local Farm Call rate. You will be notified if the long distance/out-of-state rate applies to you along with a quote upon request. Please feel free to contact us with your questions. 

Alpaca Barber will no longer be providing Goat shearing services. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We will continue to provide nail trimming services for goats 

(rates same as sheep nail trimming services)

Alpaca Barber services our home state of Michigan and the Michigan/Ohio and Michigan/Indiana boarders. If you are outside of this region we apologize that we will not be able to help you.
