Rev. Rod DiPietro is obviously a wonderful person who loves all of God's creatures. St. Brendan's is truly blessed with his compassion. I will be sure to look for Nibblet, Kevin and Spechts next time I'm visiting.

My kids and I live near these alpacas and drive by them all the time. We've wondered who owns them. How cool it is to know they are owned by the Rev. They are just adorable!

I was delighted to read this article! I too am an alpaca owner and got into the business for many of the same reasons as the Reverand. Ohio is fortunate to have the second highest alpaca population in the US, surpassed only by Oregon.
Alpacas are gentle, beautiful, easy to care for, and easy on the land and environment. They don't need much land to support them. Their fleece is warmer and softer than wool. And they are a great investment both in terms of growing your investment and getting a tax deduction.
Google the word "alpacas" and you will get lots of good info. Also feel free to read more at our web site:
Readers who are interested in alpacas should plan to visit the Ohio Expo Center on November 7th and 8th for the Ohio Alpacafest. It's free and open to the public and a great opportunity to meet alpacas and their owners up close and personal.

We always look forward to trying to spot the alpacas in the field when we drive past - we had no idea they were Fr. Rod's!

We love seeing the alpacas when we drive by - so we enjoy them too. I'd like to see more stories like this one.
