Menagerie Hill Ranch
Article on the Blog A Merry Menagerie
After many years with a large variety of species, our kids are just about grown and we’ve been able to reduce our menagerie. Over the years, we’ve found the camelids (alpacas & llamas) to be the easiest on the land and least expensive to raise and care for. And we so love their easygoing nature and fiber!
So, we’ve focused on breeding alpacas in a range of gorgeous colors for sale as breed stock and for fiber. Our products include raw alpaca fiber, roving, yarn and other alpaca fiber products in their natural colors — no dyes are used. We also sell farm fresh eggs, fruits and vegetables in season. Most recently, we have purchased a loom and are beginning to weave scarves and other products.
Services available include: agisting/boarding, breeding, ranch consulting, ranch tours, start-up training and more. Check out our website for more information.
Shoppers and visitors are always welcome. Just phone or e-mail for an appointment. Or stop by during our open farm days celebrating National Alpaca Farm Days. We are located in the English Hills area north of Vacaville, CA. Just minutes from the freeway, directions are provided on our website.
