Advanced Alpaca Genetics

Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch is an 18 acre ranch on Hwy 213 in Molalla, Oregon. We are located between Molalla and Silverton. With 85+ huacaya alpacas, we breed for the fineness, a soft handle and solid density in their fiber. Our goal is to create a long term fineness in all our alpacas that mimics the feel of cashmere or better. Presently more than half our herd is under 20.5 micron. We have a variety of colors. Did you know that there are 22 natural colors of alpacas as defined by the Alpaca Registry?  Bill is a retired AOA Certified Fleece and Performance Judge. His education helps in the purchases and breeding of our alpacas. In the future we will be holding seminars on fleece evaluations, breeding selection, business plan write ups and fiber arts. If there is a topic you’d like to learn about, we’ll find the instructor and create the class. Or you can just stop by and we would be happy to answer your questions. We have a large fleece room dedicated for presentations and a ranch store for a quick pick up gift for yourself or someone special.

Our herd consists of nine studs we either fully own or own in partnership. They are Snowmass Trilogy, Ezekial's Challenger of Marquam Hill, Marquam Hill's Avatar, Crescent Moon's Clement, Crescent Moon’s Ezekial, Perfection's Encore of Hummingherd, Crescent Moon’s Accoyo Elizario, Skyline's Romeo and Emerald Cloud's Javelin.
