Welcome to Over the Rainbow Alpaca Ranch. Nestled just one hour north of the Twin Cities, the ranch is home to over 20 breeding male and female Huacayas from some of the finest lineages in the country including Snowmass Matrix, Royal Fawn, Peruvian Hemingway, Prince Phillip, and Maykon.
Owned and operated by Sara Bender, Over the Rainbow is quickly becoming an elite breeding farm in the Midwest. Sara began her life with alpacas in 2009 with the purchase of her first bred female. Since then there has been no looking back. Mentored by Double "O" Good Alpacas, one of the country’s elite breeding farms, Sara has received extensive hands-on training in herd health and management, breeding, neonatal care, and conformation and fleece analysis. And each year, Sara takes time out of her busy days to focus on her continued learning from some of the best in the industry.
She has an eye for the best. The herd has grown to include color champions and multiple ribbon winners, crias with fleece that “will take your breath away”, (to quote one national judge) and personalities to boot! See for yourself – get introduced to Rainbow, the most remarkable, personable and delightful alpaca you’ll ever meet.
On any given day, any time, you will find Sara working among the herd. As the full-time herd manager for Foggy Bottom Alpacas, her passion for alpacas is palpable. They love her, she loves them. Experience Over the Rainbow Alpaca Ranch for yourself: a truly knowledgeable mentor and resource, top quality alpacas, a breeding program that is delivering results and a commitment to unparalleled service.
