You're Invited! Please join us for our 20th Anniversary Open House & Sale here at Whirlwind Ranch November 7-9, 2014 from 10am-4pm. Bring your camera, friends and family, but please leave the family pets at home. See the alpacas and tour the interactive fiber display and get ahead start on your holiday shopping. Everything in the store, and the alpacas, are 10% off for the weekend, and 20 items, including one alpaca, will be secretly marked to get an additional 10% discount.
It all began when we met our first alpacas in late 1993, and bought our first ones in 1994. Then, searching for almost two years for a ranch where we could raise them, we found what is now Whirlwind Ranch in Lebanon, Missouri. We have had as many as 142 Alpacas here at one time, but now we average around 40 and several Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs to keep potential predators away. We raise Huacaya Alpacas at Whirlwind Ranch and have been blessed with over 300 births here. We are expecting 6 crias (baby alpacas) in the Spring of 2015.
We are very proud of the diverse Peruvian, Bolivian and Chilean bloodlines that have been incorporated in our foundation stock. We continue to strive for consistent quality - -- Our commitment to future generations of the North American Alpaca.
We gladly encourage prospective purchasers to spend time with us, both enjoying our crias' antics and learning about basic Alpaca care and management. We aim to support our customers in all phases of Alpaca ownership. We hope you will make an appointment to visit and share our excitement in these colorful fiber animals.
