Ranch Visits Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am until 4pm
May 20, 2023
Welcome to the Ranch! we are open from 10 AM to 4 PM. Come meet our Huacaya Alpacas and Suri Llama. we offer an opportunity to feed our alpacas for 5 dollars a serving. Please feel free to ask us questions about the ranch and our alpacas, we love to share our love for them. The Ranch Store is also open 10 AM to 4 PM. We use all our alpacas fiber to make yarn, rug yarn, roving, hand-loomed rugs and dryer balls. We also work with artisans in Peru to develop clothing, teddy bears, slippers and other luxury products.
On Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursday we are open by appointment only. If you would like to book an appointment for a visit these four days please call Jennifer at 504.407.3699.
If you want to learn more about our alpacas, or about owning and caring for your own alpacas, we also offer our intensive tour. This tour is by reservation only and is about an hour long. It is about 45 minutes of education and 15 minutes feeding and walking the alpacas. We will also explain the qualities of the alpacas fiber with examples in the store.
The ranch rules are based on the safety and well being of our alpacas .While we love dogs (we have a golden retriever at home and a Maremma livestock guardian dog in the barn), domesticated dogs are the number one predator of alpacas in the United States. Therefore, for the benefit of our alpacas, we ask that you not bring dogs on the ranch. We have also been asked if our visitors can walk through the pastures to see the alpacas. Our vet has advised us that since we do not know what might be on our guests shoes, not to allow anyone other than us in the pastures for the safety of our alpacas.
If you have any questions about visiting the ranch or want to setup a reservation for an intensive tour, please call Jennifer at 503-407-3699
