Beverly Brehm

Certifications: Huacaya Halter, Suri Halter

Beverly Brehm, her husband Jason, and their two children, Christian and Julia, reside in the beautiful Southern Oregon Rogue Valley. Their alpaca journey began out of necessity as a health condition prevented Christian from participating in various other activities. Julia owns a small herd of three huacaya alpacas as well. Since 2009, Beverly and Jason have built Rogue Suri Alpacas, a nationally recognized quality suri herd of more than 50 alpacas. Additionally, Beverly has been an airport concessionaire since 2005 and currently owns and operates Sky House Bar & Grill inside the Medford Airport.

This business experience has helped develop and create her desire to become an AOA Certified Alpaca Judge. She has also volunteered for various show positions over the years. Beverly enjoys all the wonderful things that the alpaca fiber allows her to create, from spinning to roving, yarn to crochet.
