The Jackson County Love of Llamas program is a 4-H program affiliated with the University of Georgia Extension. The program was started in 2007 by Kim Kyst at her farm in Jefferson and has grown significantly over the years! It gives members the chance to participate in hands-on learning about llamas and alpacas.

The year-round program teaches about camelid history, veterinary care, grooming, anatomy, nutrition, and shearing, among other topics. The members also learn leadership, public speaking, mentoring, and build lifelong friendships.

About our Program:

Established in 2007, Jackson County 4-H Love of Llamas, hosted by Chelian Farm-Paul and Kim Kyst, is in Jefferson, Georgia. The program is a charter 4-H program, through the Georgia 4-H Program and the University of Georgia, geared towards educational hands-on program with llamas and alpacas. The program teaches the history of llamas and alpacas, grooming, harvesting fiber, utilizing fiber, daily animal care, year animal care, veterinary care, anatomy, nutrition, responsibility of owning animals, showing, public speaking and self-confidence, leadership, along with tons of experiences and opportunities. This program teaches responsibility in a fun and exciting way.

Our program is an annual program that runs August – June. We are involved with the education of youth, parents, public classrooms, the community through parades, festivals, live nativity and much much more. We are an extremely active program that requires focus, dedication, ambition, and hours of involvement.

About Chelian Farm:

Established in 1999 in Sugar Hill, Georgia, then in 2003 moved to Jefferson, Georgia. The farm currently consists of 30 acres, 7 alpacas, 21 llamas, 20 hens, 3 dogs, and 4 cats. The animals are a mixture of quality breeding stock, rescues, borrowed animals, and retired animals. All animals provide love and companionship to the families involved in the program.

Currently the farm is not open to the public except through organized 4-H opportunities. Those opportunities would be fundraising opportunities for the Love of Llamas program and consist of opportunities such as painting instructional programs, tours, hikes, educational programs and much more.

About our Coffee Fundraiser:

The program is not funded by Jackson County or the University of Georgia. All required funds to operate the program, provide the required supplies and tack, feed and hay, and animal care are the responsibility of the Love of Llamas youth and parent members. Fundraising opportunities are required to maintain the quality and services provided.

This coffee fundraiser was created to provide quality Peruvian coffee through online purchases and through the youth and parents active in the program.

Coffee Components:

The funds raised from coffee sales go toward the care of the llamas and alpacas, as well as help introduce the general public to the world of the camelids.
