We make Exquisite Yarns!

Now entering our 21st year of raising alpacas, we continue to grow in our knowledge of natural fiber farming. Wendy has been a long time Director for Alpaca Breeders of Arizona, and was elected to the national Alpaca Owners Association Board of Directors in 2019. Wendy is now an advocate for alpacas, and their care.

Here at Peaceful Prairie Ranch we utilize a sustainable farming module with organic practices employed. We appreciate the popularity of growing natural fibers, and really love the type of farming we do growing natural fiber. In recent years, we've watched a leap forward in the genetic improvement of the North American alpaca herd, and boy, are we seeing the results here! Were focusing on fleece uniformity and density in our herd which will yield a sustainable annual clip to operate on the cottage and future commercial market. By utilizing scientific measurements, we have the proof in reporting of our elite fiber qualities!

Our location really is a 'peaceful prairie' when you sit and look over the alpacas in their very own Arizona version of the 'Altiplano'. Our mile-high elevation lends itself to suit the alpacas just perfect. We have warm sunny days and nice cool nights - with very cold winters in a dry climate - just like the alpacas native lands in South America. While we like the 'dry' climate for lack of parasites etc., we do feel a little jealous of those farms with lush green pastures - guess we can't have everything! We really couldn't think of a more perfect environment to raise alpacas than right here.

Here at Peaceful Prairie Ranch you will find excellent show-quality alpacas, foundation breeding stock and, quality fiber animals. We strive to help our buyers easily transition into farming by helping them to set shearing, assist with questions and whatever is needed to get comfortable with the immense learning curve farm operations throw at us - from feed to breeding to birthing.
