— The Team

Alpaca Country Estates Ranch and Bed & Breakfast is a working alpaca ranch located in Central Oregon. Our herd, which began with the purchase of six loveable Huacaya alpacas in 2006, is now over 1,000 strong. The ranch offers breathtaking views of the Cascade Mountains, and includes a bed and breakfast, fashion design company, artistry classroom, and boutique store.

One of Alpaca Country Estates strongest assets is owning exceptional herdsires as well as high quality dams. With over thirty current herdsires, Nancy meticulously decides which animal is the ultimate choice to breed to whom, planning every breeding decision for an outcome of soft, fine fleece, with lots of dense fiber on those “teddy bear” critters with their pleasing personalities. There is nothing more rewarding than the thrill of seeing the results of your labor of love, by viewing that newly born cria and knowing that you have another winner!

Our strong breeding program has an emphasis on uniformity, fineness with a soft handle, brightness, and density. Currently, we have been rewarded with judge’s choice in both fawn and white, as well as color champions and reserve champions in black, grey, brown, fawn, and white. We continue to strive to improve upon our high standards within the alpaca community.
