Article on the Blog Whispers of a Gentle Species
Renaissance Ridge Alpacas was born when we left our hectic lives in Boston to “live off the land” in the Sierra foothills of California. Ken, an OB-Gyn, sought a complete change of pace while I wished to raise our daughters in a peaceful country setting and to spend time working with my hands.
We began looking for a new endeavor combining both our interests and Ken’s scientific knowledge. We “found” alpacas and have never looked back and it is now our full time “work”. We are a medium sized farm breeding for elite colored fleece. We breed with a purpose — to breed fiber to its fullest potential, improving every generation. Each breeding is made with that goal in mind. Through hard work and dedication, we have created an nationally recognized award-winning herd of alpacas producing ELITE fiber. Whatever your goals, either breeding, knitting or spinning, take a minute to check out what we do. Due to our ranch size, and our selectivity, we have outstanding values to offer. Contact us for a tour of our ranch and a tasting of the outstanding local wines!
