AlAnn Ranch Alpacas

"Everything Alpaca"

In The Beautiful And Rugged Mountains Of Northern Arizona

Come see us April 27th, 2019 for annual Shearing! Open 7am to 2 pm Saturday. Come help, or just get an eyeful of alpaca! Get up close and personal with our alpacas! Tours by appointment.

AlAnn Ranch is a family-run alpaca producer in northern Arizona, USA. We breed hardy, genetically diverse alpacas, and sell breeding stock, companion and pet alpacas, fiber and fiber products, and meats.

Alan and Ann work the farm year-round, caring for animals, planting the garden and harvesting all our produce -- animal, vegetable and mineral -- Just kidding. ;)

Come join us for Annual Alpaca Shearing every April at the Ranch. Come early and learn how we shear our alpacas and obtain our annual harvest (alpaca fiber)!
Get hands-on experience and up-close-and-personal with the alpacas. Extra hands are always needed if you are healthy and physically able. Or, you can take a chair and watch while discussing our antics from the sideline -- take your pick!
Shopping opportunities available, as well as Ranch tours of our off-grid experiments.

We use Josh at High Plains Shearing from Flagstaff to shear our animals annually and sell the fleece as raw fiber, roving, bats, yarns, blankets and rugs, clothing and home decor. Any rough fiber is also used -- usually as rug yarn or bats for quilting and such. Sometimes we blend other fibers with the alpaca for unique and lustrous yarns and rovings. Some of our fiber is hand processed -- we card, spin, ply, weave, knit, crochet, tat, felt and sew items for sale. We also send some alpaca fiber out to different mills for processing into different types of fiber products. Occasionally we offer items imported from South America for sale also, but try to keep everything Arizona Grown and USA made.

The last full weekend in April every year is Shearing (Saturday, April 27, 2019) and we invite people from around Arizona, the region, and even from several states away. We may provide rough camping with no amenities in the beautiful northern Arizona juniper forest, provide some accommodations and showers, feed everybody, and have a BBQ Saturday night. After cleanup on Sunday, generally everyone but family leaves for parts North, West or East. This annual shearing provides our raw fiber product.

We usually attend between two and five trade shows a year. Most notably, the Fiber and Wool Festival at Flagstaff, Arizona -- setting up our booth, bringing animals to share, educating the public, and selling our hand and machine made products to the public. We also participate in National Alpaca Farm and Ranch Days, and Thanksgiving and Christmas Farm Boutiques. We host a "Fun Fiber Field Trip" for K-12 children of the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe (Prescott), and Pine Forest Charter School and Camp Civitan (Flagstaff), and the Shonto Preparatory School (Shonto), in the Fall and Summer, as well as other school groups. Visitors are welcome on an appointment basis.

AlAnn Ranch is a member of several cooperatives such as the New England Alpaca Fiber Producers (NEAFP).
AlAnn Ranch Alpacas is a member of Alpaca Breeders of Arizona, Alpaca Owners Association (national), the Alpaca Registry and supports the semi-annual SouthWest Regional Alpaca Show.
