Albuquerque Alpacas is home to an established herd of quality huacaya alpacas. We are located in the North Valley, on the east side of the Rio Grande River. The historic Acequia Madre irrigation ditch flows adjacent to the ranch transforming the desert into lush, green pastures where our animals graze and frolic.
The rural setting is just minutes from Interstate-25. It is surrounded by the greater metropolitan area and all it has to offer in terms of recreation, cultural points of interest, and a wide range of amenities.
Our goal is to offer a wide range of colors in varying price ranges from show to pet quality. One of the many benefits to having a small farm is the ability to spend time handling each of our animals from the impressionable early days until they go off to their new homes. This approach allows us to develop a respectful, trusting relationship with all our alpacas which makes herd management chores a breeze.

The Albuquerque Alpaca herd was tested recently and no evidence of BVD was found. To protect our herd and visiting animals, BVD testing is required for all animals arriving for any services at our ranch. Strict quarantine procedures are also in place for any alpacas new to our facility or returning from shows.
We hope you enjoy browsing our website and invite you to come by for a visit! I am happy to clarifying any questions you may have about what it takes to raise alpacas whether it be for profit or fun.

"I had a lot of fun visiting you at your ranch. I felt so relaxed while I was there and for the whole day after I left. The feeling actually stayed with me for 2 days. I loved your alpacas and your ranch."
