Alpaca Rose Ranch
Help, Help. That is what Alpaca Rose Ranch is all about. We
have been in the Alpaca business since September of 2004. We
went to an Alpaca show and Fell in love with Suri Alpaca's. We
bought our first 3 Alpaca's with no fencing up, so we went
back to our home located 16 miles north of Spokane WA in Elk
WA and started to buy up fencing for our Alpaca's that were
coming in October 2004.
of the many questions we get asked about Alpaca's is what are
they good for. Can you ride them, can you eat them (Heaven
forbid) why Alpaca's? I hope that after you visit our web page
we have answered that question. I hope we can raise enough
interest that you will e-mail us for more information or stop
by for a farm visit.
got into Alpaca's because we fell in love with them when we
first looked at them, and to make some money. We also like the
tax break that you can receive from them during the year. We
will get into that later.
Alpaca was first introduced into the United States in the
beginning of the 90's. People from the US placed bids on the
Alpaca's they wanted from Peru and after a period of time they
received them. The herd has grown to over 100,000. So has you
can see people are buying them and breeding them for resale.
With the addition of new breeders the herd will continue to
grow at a rapid pace. To keep the herd going breeders have to
keep education the public on their value of today and the
future of the Alpaca's fiber.
are a lot of Alpaca owners who were successful business people
who were tired of working for someone else and the stress of
working. I myself still have to work but my wife sold her
business. She loves her Alpaca's. I look forward to the day
when I can retire and enjoy the Alpaca's more than I do now.
Every person who works 40 to 60 hours a week . I love to work
on my roses, I relax and tune into another world. I believe
every person in a high stress job seeks out a hobby to relax
themselves from their job. We were helped so much by Alpaca
Owners we wanted to pass that help on.
the short time that we have been in the business we have found
out how important it is to have good bloodlines. Our goal is
to breed Alpaca's that are conformationaly correct., have
great luster, and great fleece. In order to reach these goals
we chose to breed to the some of the best males around to form
a great foundation of females. Some of the bloodlines that we
have are Bruxo, Inca, (two of the best males imported)
Macgyver (top herdisre in the US for the last 3 years.)
Captain Morgan reserve herdsire for the last two years. Please
email us with your questions and we will answer them for you.
