I never imagined I'd retire from the corporate world to raise and breed alpacas with my husband, Bob. What a fantastic undertaking! Our small farm is located in the George Washington National Forest, West Virginia's alpaca mountain hideaway.

We planned on raising a few alpacas for pleasure but then bought some more and began showing them in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Pa. Our herd now totals 20 on our farm with crias always arriving. Bob and I co-own 3 other alpacas with Good Time Ridge Farm located in Augusta, WV.

Alpacas are beautiful and known for their fleece, friendly demeanor and avid curiosity. all our alpacas are registered huacayas with colors ranging from white, rose gray, fawn, multi, brown to black. Some of are from known bloodline: Royal Fawn, Prince Philip, and Logan to name a few.

We'd love for you to come and visit our farm which is about 1 hour from Harrisonburg, Va and 2 hours from DC (Rt 66 west to meet Rt 81 south). Please call for more specific directions if you'd like to visit. We're proud of all the "kids" in our alpaca family.

Potential buyers are certainly welcome. Prices are reasonable. Breeding is also available. Please contact us by calling or e-mail. Come see us sometime.
