Stephen and Linda Nessworthy acquired pet alpacas in 2004, as Linda had been fascinated by them since childhood, and the couple greatly enjoyed keeping the animals in their garden in Cape Town. At the time, they had a specialist food import business. Five years later, they converted their interest in alpacas into a full-time farming operation: they sold their food business, bought a farm in 2010 and started Quenti Alpacas in 2011. "We've always looked to niche markets," says Stephen," and with Linda's fascination with alpacas, this made sense."
