**UPDATE** Over the Rainbow Alpaca Ranch and Foggy Bottom Alpacas are merging on January 1, 2018. We will continue under the farm name Foggy Bottom Alpacas. Our focus will not change - to be a farm program that focuses on breeding high quality alpacas and providing education to those new and existing farms. We hope you are as excited about this new opportunity as we are, and we look forward to working with you! For more information, please visit www.foggybottomalpacas.com. We are working hard to transfer all animals to our new site.

Welcome to Over the Rainbow Alpaca Ranch. Nestled one hour north of the Twin Cities, the ranch is home to over 50 breeding male and female Huacayas from some of the finest lineages in the country including Snowmass Matrix, Royal Fawn, Peruvian Hemingway, Prince Phillip, and Rumm Runner.

Owned and operated by Sara Bender, Over the Rainbow has quickly become 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 some of the country’s most respected 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 a keen eye. 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. Take time to read issues of "Chat with Rainbow", the ranch's exclusive newsletter.

On any given day, any time, you will find Sara working among the herd; 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.
