We have participated in extensive alpaca education ourselves, and we are recognized contributors to the industry on a local and national level.

* Basic alpaca care and health practices

 

* Basic handling techniques

Ranch Tours

 

We invite you to join us for an educational tour of our ranch and fiber studio. You will be offered an opportunity to mingle with members of our herd, get your hands into the luscious fiber and learn how the fiber is processed...from start to finish.  We are open to individuals, groups or home schools.

We are in the business of breeding and selling quality alpacas that match your needs and interests.  Do you want to show alpacas and are looking for males or females that will be competitive in the show ring?  We have them.  Are you only looking for offspring of color champions?  We have them...although we will probably have the discussion with you that are best show-winning line descends from a female and her male offspring who never received a color championship. Are you a fiber artisan only interested in owning alpacas that will consistently produce the quality of fleece you desire?  We have them.  Are you a new era "homesteader" focused on teaching your children responsibility through the care of various farm animals?  We have alpacas that are perfect to help teach those lessons.  Do you have a desire to hang out with magical and mystical animals that have a natural ability to create a sense of calm.  We have them.  If we don't have an alpaca that meets your needs, we will gladly refer you to our friends in the alpaca community that may have the exact match for you.

We have bred several outstanding males through the years.  We have also acquired herdsires from other alpaca breeders to enhance our breeding programs.  Some remain here to serve as herdsires to support our breeding program and to provide the opportunity for other breeders to use in theirs.  We are highly critical when it comes to our breeding males and many factors are considered when selecting who we will keep or offer to other breeders.
