Ranches

Alpacas at Hum Sweet Hum/Creswell, OR
A working farm dedicated to friendly alpacas with extraordinary fleece. Fiber and its many uses is the focus of their breeding program for both hucaya and suri alpacas.

Canzelle Alpacas/Carpinteria, CA
This ranch is small enough so that each animal is personally cared for, and large enough to offer a selection of colors and prices. Canzelle Alpacas and their offspring boast many championship ribbons.

Eclipse Alpacas /Oxford, MI
A friendly family farm with a holistic approach to their herd care.

Pura Vida Alpacas /Eugene, OR
A high quality farm with generations of elite genetics.
