Softfoot is a privately owned family farm and sanctuary. Softfoot was established by Gary and Sandy Retallick for the breeding of World Class Alpacas, and as a Genetic Ark for endangered Australian Marsupial’s.

Located on 600 acres in the picturesque Hindmarsh Valley, South Australia, (near Victor Harbor), Softfoot's aim is to breed healthy and vigorous alpacas, producing high yields of soft and uniform fibre that can perform in a commercial context. Softfoot's focus on this goal has led to immense gains over the past 10 years, resulting in Softfoot winning Best Overall Exhibitor at nearly all shows attended in recent history. 

The Retallick family, founders of Softfoot, have also endeavoured to improve their lands in an eco-friendly manner by:

- Extensive plantings of Australian native trees and shrubs

- Construction of a large wetland for bird and aquatic species

- Creation of 4 fully fenced feral proof Sanctuaries and several
enclosed intensive breeding facilities for endangered Australian Marsupials.

- Focusing on farming Alpacas, well known for their environmental
benefits over other livestock.
