Peaceful Prairie Alpaca & Merino Ranch

Conveniently located in the heart of Arizona, we're located between the popular Arizona travel destinations of Prescott, Sedona and Jerome. We are easy to find just off Hwy. 89A in the 'Quad-City' area shared by Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey.

Alpacas in our mile-high Arizona climate fare well since we are not in extreme cold or heat.  We think its the best climate for raising these fine fleeced animals.  We're passionate about applying sustainable practices to our business; we love what we do and feel its a great industry to be part of!  Many others have come & gone in the two decades, but we look forward to continued growth and more fiber farming ahead.

Sales List:  Interested in owning Alpacas yourself?

We proudly offer alpacas for sale that will suit any buyer...we have show-quality, breeding stock, fiber producers (a 'spinners flock') and alpacas that may be pets.  Just ask...we may have just what you're looking for!  Because of the number of alpacas here, we are in a position to sell at great prices without sacrificing new-buyer support or quality.  We do not have our complete sales list online, please email or call to discuss what you're looking for.  We specialize in matching owners and the perfect alpaca purchase for them!   

Interested in Owning & Boarding Alpacas?

You can own alpacas & never get manure on your shoes!  We offer the housing, feeding and care for alpacas purchased & subsequently boarded here.  This is an option for owners wanting a few years to grow a herd before they move to their own ranch.

And how about those Merino Sheep?!

NEW for 2016 - MERINOS FOR SALE

The ribbon-winning Merino were a great addition to the alpacas here in 2009.  In 2010 we added rare Black Merino genetics. We've had a few lambs, so now for 2016 we will offer MERINO SHEEP FOR SALE!  If you are in a non-desert climate and interested in Merinos Contact Wendy at 928-848-0267.   Read more on Merinos here. . .

 

Calendar Of Events:

2016 National Alpaca Farm Days

Mark You Calendar for September 24th & 25th 2016.  We will be open from 10am-3pm each day.  Plan to come and meet the alpacas up close and in person!  Take our exciting self-guided tour and learn more than you ever thought you'd need to know about alpacas and Merino sheep!  Where else can you have this much fun for FREE?!

2016 Buzz the Fuzz! - (you know... 'Shearing')

This is our once-a-year farm 'harvest'.  We will be shearing alpacas around the last week of April (tentatively).     ** IF YOU HAVE ALPACAS THAT NEED SHEARING please contact Wendy S.A.P to possibly be added to our shearer Josh Klein's shearing schedule for April!  We also suggest Jason Siffring of High Plains Shearing, and for alpacas in Northern AZ, you can have shearing done at the Flag Wool Festival June 4th & 5th in Flagstaff, AZ.   **Our Best Advice:  Schedule Your Alpacas Shearing BY February to avoid being stuck when the shearers are all booked in March, April and May**

2016 Flag Wool & Fiber Festival

June 4th & 5th 2016  -  The Pioneer Museum  2340 N. Fort Valley Rd.  Flagstaff, AZ
This is an awesome event, revitalized and worth attending!   We'll be there... with amazing fleece, yarns and a new mini-corespun yarn.  We're being nudged (pushed and persuaded) to possibly bring a few Merino sheep.  Come see us at the Flag Wool & Fiber Festival this June and you wont be sorry!
