We are located in the hill country surrounding the historic mining town of Madrid, New Mexico, 30 miles south of Santa Fe at an elevation of 6,500 feet. Since we are both still working outside the ranch at other careers, we’ve kept our herd of huacaya alpacas small, focusing on producing exceptional alpacas through selective breeding and excellent nutrition. Our patience has paid off!
