Who we are…Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch is an 18 acre ranch in Molalla, Oregon. We are directly in between Molalla and Silverton. We have 80+ Huacaya alpacas. We breed our animals for the fineness of their fiber, with a soft handle and good density. Our goal is to create a long term fineness in all animals that mimics the feel of cashmere or better. Presently more than half our herd is under 21 micron. We have white as well as a variety of other colors of alpacas. There are 22 natural colors of alpacas as defined by the Alpaca Registry. Bill is an AOBA Certified Fleece and Performance Judge. His education helps in the purchases and breeding of our alpacas. In the future we will be holding seminars on fleece evaluations, breeding selection, business plan write ups and fiber arts. If there is a topic you’d like to learn about, we’ll find the instructor and create the class. Or you can just stop by and we would be happy to answer your questions. We have a large fleece room dedicated for presentations and a ranch store for a quick pick up gift for yourself or someone special.Our herd consists of eight studs we either fully own or own in partnership. They are Snowmass Trilogy, Ezekial's Challenger of Marquam Hill, Crescent Moon’s Ezekial, Crescent Moon’s Accoyo Elizario, Accoyo America Kodiak, Nirvana of AMHR, Denver of AMHR and Emerald Cloud's Javelin.We love to talk about these amazing animals. Whether it is a question on how to get started, breeding questions, animal husbandry, the investment aspects (Bill is a retired CPA) or anything else that you might be interested in, please feel free to stop by, give us a call or drop us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

My husband and I just happened to stumble on this wonderful farm as we drove along the Oregon countryside. I was so pleased to learn about alpacas and see them up close and personal! I also was delighted to buy some wonderful soft alpaca yarn for a project.

We stopped by late in the afternoon, pulled into the parking lot reserved for visiting guests, and the owner, Jennifer, came out to greet us. Instantly she welcomed us to her ranch and invited us into the spacious working barn. The alpaca's were gorgeous and curious and came right over to see who we were and what we were up... More

Marquam Hill Ranch is well worth a visit if you're in the area. Apart from the attraction of the alpacas, the drive there is lovely. The alpacas are a terrific draw though. There are lots of them, in beautiful shades. They are placid and friendly. Any that are a bit hormonal are segregated so they don't spit at visitors -... More

My stepmother, adult daughter and I stopped at the Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch to look for alpaca yarn and we ended up having a wonderful informative tour by Jennifer, one of the owners. We learned so much about alpaca behavior and loved watching them watch us. A herd of females ebbed and flowed into the barn and out again... More

We were traveling from the Salem, OR area to Portland and somewhat spontaneously turned into this Alpaca farm. It was a Sunday afternoon, and though they had signs saying they were "open," we figured we'd just stand at the fence for a few minutes and look at the alpacas before loading back up and resuming our trip. Jennifer, the owner,... More

Traveling south from Portland towards Silverton on a day trip, my wife and I spontaneously stopped in to this little ranch last Saturday. We were the only visitors mid-morning and weren't sure they were open - but were greeted within seconds by co-owner, Jennifer Cameron, who was soon showing us the different pens, pointing out the dozens of alpacas roaming...
