We are located in Clearmont, Wyoming. Our ranch has enough room for everyone (critters & kids!) and we hope to be able to further our enjoyment of both.
We are home to 4 kids, 6 horses, 180+ alpacas, 8 cats, 3 dogs, 6 llamas, 2 goats, 2 sheep, 4 peacocks, 2 emu, lots and lots of chickens. If you don't believe.... check out our photo album or visit our petting zoo and see for yourself the crazy things we do!
Our herd loves to play in the fields and ravines out back. They have 3-400 acres to run on and they do a lot of running. We love our animals being out in a pasture setting because we believe they need lots of exercise. The bonus to this is it helps cut down on some of the toenail problems. Most love to be hosed off in the summer and that becomes a favorite chore that everyone wants to do on hot summer days. Fall brings the bounties of the garden which are quickly devoured. Winter is the time for feeding and lots of manual labor. Spring is probably the best time at the ranch because it is the greenest time of year and the best for babies and riding!
We strive for lots of color along with fineness in our herd of alpacas. Our farm combines the coverage of the Peruvian with the fineness of the Chilean heritages. This creates wonderful fleeces for fiber production and animals that are pleasant to hang out with. Alpacas really are a special type of livestock to raise!
In addition to the fiber processing mill, we are making alpaca/leather items like moccasins. Combining these two mediums just seems right to us!
We also love to have visitors out to play at the Petting Zoo that we call SageRidge ranch, so if you get a chance feel free to stop by (or just leave us a message on the GuestBook page!) sometime and visit all of us!
