About Us

Like most alpaca breeders, we started out with a small herd and kept our careers going at the same time. Then, in 2006, Steven retired as a vice-president in the insurance industry and became a full-time “alpaca farmer”. He is happier than he has ever been. I can’t get him back into a suit and tie. He prefers his work clothes. So if you see a mangy looking farmer around town, it is probably Steven!

We moved in 2007 to a larger farm with 15 acres of pasture which is our present location on Port Gamble Road. Our herd is a great investment, both for the joy they give us and for the animals we breed and sell. They also double as great “lawn mowers” and produce great alpaca “beans” which make incredible fertilizer. We also sell our alpaca beans which are very popular with gardeners.

Our first alpaca herd included “Maynard”, our guard llama, who was Mr. Personality. He was the first one to greet our visitors and to shower them with llama “kisses”. He especially liked the children and also, the ladies with perfume. The more expensive the perfume, the more entranced he became! If you had tuna fish for lunch, he liked you even better! Much to our dismay, Maynard has passed away.

We give farm tours by appointment only. You are introduced to our 2 livestock guard dogs, Butch and Sonny, maremma-pyrenees. They love to be petted. We then take you out into the runway to the pastures to pet our female alpacas. We have a farm store where we sell all kinds of things, alpaca yarn, fiber, clothes, toys and socks. The tours take about 1-1 1/2 hours.

We love the farm life and sharing our llamas, alpacas, chickens, guard dogs and cats with everyone. We invite you to come and visit us!
