IMPORTANT: The unusual weather can bring heavy rains to the Ozarks as we have experienced the past couple of days. We are located on top of a hill and there is a low water crossing you need to go over to get to us. If there has been a lot of rain, please, call us before heading out to visit us to ensure the road is safe. Remember, "turn around, don't drown". Thanks and be safe!
Our 21st Anniversary Sale & Open House will be November 6-7-8. 2015 from 10am-4pm. No appointment will be necessary to visit on these days, but please leave the family pets at home.
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.
