Located on 20 acres of flat to rolling hills in Lompoc, Calif.
We have a variety of animals....Alpacas, Llamas, Icelandic Sheep, Chickens and lots of pets.... Oh and now the mill.
We started in 1999 raising club lambs for 4H. We were looking for something that we could raise that would allow us to not have to go to our “day” jobs.
We then discovered Alpacas. Being that Mette is a Knitter and Tom Spins and weaves it was a natural choice.
So in 2002 we purchased our first Llamas and Alpacas. At that time it was still a dream.
In 2003 we made the ranch a business. As the numbers grew, the bags of fiber were having great difficulty finding a place to lay….. and Tom could not keep up with Mette’s Knitting habit
We decided that we needed to get a Mini Mill. Since our emphasis is on FIBER !
In 2004 we made the switch to Icelandic sheep as well.
Then in 2006 the Mini Mill (not so Mini) Arrived……….
