Feed the Alpacas

Your tour will include a bag of alpaca treats that are good for them! Alpaca feeding is safe as they don't have top front teeth, so they don't bite and are eager to eat from your hand.

Entertaining Seminar

Enjoy an entertaining seminar about alpacas! You'll learn many interesting facts and some of the quirky things alpacas do. You might be surprised at some of the things we've seen over the years!

The Store is Open

Part of your tour is visiting The Alpaca Shoppe, where you'll find many items made from luxurious alpaca fleece, such as hats, scarves, gloves, toys, and alpaca-themed items.

We Will Be Closed November 21st through the 29th for the Thankgiving Holiday.

  • Tours are approximately an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the size of the group. Please ring the gate bell on the driver's side when you pull into the driveway to let us know you have arrived.
  • Parking is available inside the gate, and most of the tour is on level ground. Some animals live on a lower portion of the property, accessed by a short gravel driveway. Let us know if you need assistance in walking to the lower level. We are happy to help.

Tour Tips

Welcome to the ranch! We look forward to your visit and want you to have a fun and memorable experience getting to know the wonderful world of alpacas. Here are a few tips to help you plan your day.

  • Upon arrival, please pull into our driveway and ring the call button on the driver's side to let us know you have arrived. Parking is available inside the gate.
  • Our septic system cannot accommodate the number of visitors to the ranch, but we provide an outdoor porta potty for our guests. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Public restrooms are available at Ronald Reagan Sports Park on Rancho Vista and Margarita Road.
  • Please be on time and plan for traffic. We schedule tours every two hours; therefore, another group will likely come in after you. We want you to enjoy every minute with us
  • Please leave your pets comfortably at home. For liability reasons, we cannot allow other animals on the property
  • The majority of the tour is spent on relatively flat ground and is accessible by wheelchairs and walkers. We have some gravel in the parking area, but the rest is sidewalks, decomposed granite, and asphalt. Some of our animals are on a lower portion of the property, and we will walk down a gravel driveway to see them. Please let your tour guide know if you need assistance getting to the lower portion, or you are welcome to remain in the main area for that part of the tour.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather; closed-toed shoes are recommended but not necessary. Hats, sunscreen, and light clothing are recommended for the warmer days.
  • Bring your camera! There will be lots of opportunities for photo ops.
  • Parents, keep a close eye on your young children. They get very excited (which we love), but running frightens our alpacas. Children may not climb fences or throw rocks--we want to keep everyone safe, both humans and animals.
  • Most importantly, have fun! But beware--alpacas may just steal your heart!

"We love llamas but had never got to see them up close. We had such a great time petting and feeding them. The tour guides taught us llama facts we weren’t aware of and we even got to see their fur spun into yarn. The grounds were super clean and there is a cute gift shop. Would highly recommend as a family event or field trip. PS One member of our group got a pin because the llama spit at him. It was hilarious!"

"We loved our visit here in January so much that my daughter chose to celebrate her 12th birthday party amongst the Alpacas (and Marshall the Llama). The Alpaca Hacienda welcomed 19 other guests and Miss Julie gave us a beautiful intro to these special animals and there was just enough show and tell and touch too to keep all ages engaged. We felt the time in each pen was adequate and the guests even left some chalk art at the end of their visit. It was such a beautiful serene way to spend the afternoon and we were provided with a table and chairs for refreshments, balloons, presents and guests. Everyone commented on how much fun they had and what they learned from their visit. Miss Julie was so kind and patient and was with us to answer any questions we had. We can’t say enough about our time here and are so grateful for the willingness of the animals’ participation as well as the handlers who have clearly worked very hard to not only keep the location clean but also friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful and unique way to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. We will continue to share the love. Thank you!"
