Small independent alpaca farm run by a lovely couple. They are passionate about their Alpacas and share their passion for free. Very informal tour and a small shop if you wish to purchase an item or donate. Beautiful drive from Albuquerque .

The alpacas were very friendly, and you get to go in the pens to meet them. The owner was extremely knowledgeable and obviously loves his flock. The store has very reasonably priced items. We had a fun visit.

We learned a lot about alpacas during our visit with Bill, his wife, and meeting the alpacas. Both Bill and his wife were extremely welcoming and we got to feed the alpacas. A wonderful trip for my daughter who loves animals. A must see.
