We visited Ron and his ranch in April 2017 on our way to the Grand Canyon. It was an unexpected off the beaten path treasure. Ron showed us around and introduced us to his beautiful Alpacas. It was so much fun! We appreciated how much he respected the animals and the land. We also bought a couple Alpaca wool socks... More

Off-the-beaten-path attraction for travelers heading between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Our kids loved meeting the many adorable alpacas at the ranch. I liked learning about alpaca wool and how it differs from sheep and llama wool. We bought some alpaca socks and a winter cap in the store. Well worth the stop. FYI: You have to get buzzed... More

Alpacas, pigs and dogs oh my! We got to pet them and feed them, we also learned a lot about them. This place is a working ranch which was also really cool to see. It was $7 per car load for the tour. They also have a great shop.

This is a great place to take kids to interact with animals. It's more than a petting zoo, it's a working ranch and the tour is very informative about his animals. there is a gift shop and it's easy on and off the Highway.

Ron is very knowledgeable and will tell you everything he knows about Alpacas. They are without a doubt the gentlest creatures for their size. I highly recommend this to anyone that has an interest in fiber as theirs is extraordinary. It is also a great place to get out, stretch you legs and learn a bit.

When we arrived we were disappointed that they weren't open on Tuesdays. But the owner came out and opened up for us. What a nice visit we had visiting the alpacas and learning about them. We liked the dogs and the pigs too. We also purchased some alpaca products in the shop. Looking forward to wearing them this winter!

My husband Joel and I were heading east from LV to Sedona and found the reviews here to be great. So we gave it a try...and we were NOT disappointed. Loved to meet the animals: dogs, pigs, alpacas. Also a pleasure to meet Ron & Anna. Great tour, educational and fun.

We happened to come on shearing day (1x/year), so the chocolate brown alpaca named "Hershey" was prancing around like he'd won the lottery. I was hoping to pet them, but they had had enough human interaction that day. The dogs and pig were very friendly though, and allowed us to rub their bellies. There is a store where you can... More
