Qué vas a hacer

Take a break from the hectic pace of life, back to "A Simpler Time" where you can unplug and de-stress enjoying the peaceful country setting and gentle ways of the alpaca. I will meet you in the driveway, along with our "greeter" dogs Max and Molly, and guide you down the country road to where you will meet the alpacas. Alpacas are very gentle animals and you will have the opportunity to go in with them to hand feed grain and take pictures with them. Meanwhile you will learn about the care of the alpacas, what they like and don't like and have an opportunity to get your questions answered. Next, we will make our way over to the barn which houses our fiber mill where you will see the process of how to make yarn from the fiber we collect after shearing the alpacas. We will wrap up our tour in our ranch store where you will have time to shop for items made from the luxuriously soft alpaca fiber, aka "the affordable cashmere". Plan on an hour or an hour and a half depending on the size of the group. All ages are welcome, children under 2 are free.
Other things to note
Wear comfortable walking shoes as there will be a short walk to get to the alpaca area from the driveway.

I look forward to sharing my passion for alpacas with you. I first fell in love with these beautiful animals in the year 2000 on a family vacation. We purchased 4 within the first week of seeing them for the first time and now have a herd of 36. We run a full service alpaca ranch, breeding and selling alpacas, offering champion stud services and shearing services to our clients. We also own and operate a fiber mill which we started in 2003 where we process the fiber from our own alpacas as well as the fiber from clients across the country with fiber animals. We feel blessed to do what we love for a living and be able to share our passion with others.

This experience was really cool! Max & Molly are their guard dogs who greeted me immediately. They were super friendly & Max is definitely very affectionate :) Barbara was very kind. There were a lot more alpacas than I expected! Feeding them was very fun & wholesome. I would definitely recommend this to anyone as it was very informative & such a fun experience.

First time seeing alpacas up close for many in our family. Barbara and her lovely greeter dogs immediately welcomed us. We felt comfortable right away. I personally don’t like dogs and have a fear of them coming towards me, but her dogs were very calm and respectful. It’s as if they knew and were just saying hello lol. I loved it. Barbara is extremely knowledgeable and answered all the questions our group had. This experience was very safe, and allowed for just our group making it “covid” precautionary. Touring with the alpacas Barbara explained in great detail things about them that make them unique. She allowed us to take pictures, feed the alpacas, and took some of our group for us. There’s walking involved but it’s not extensive. She’s an awesome iPhone photographer I should add. The fiber mill at the end had a variety of goodies and Barbara explained the process of cleaning, and making each of the items we saw. The kids really enjoyed this tour as much as we did and they have not stopped talking about it. I highly recommend supporting this family because you really get way more for the price she offers this tour at!

A truly unique and beautiful experience! Barbara is such a lovely host. The interactions with the alpacas are very intimate. Such peaceful animals. You can tell they are also very well loved and cared for. The items in the shop are so precious, we bought just a few things but could have easily picked one of everything after feeling how luxuriously soft it all is! My 10 and 12 year old boys were in awe of their little alpaca souvenir and my 2yr old could not get enough of the feeding experience. A great new year memory! Highly recommend!
