We would like to take this time to wish everyone a happy and safe Holiday Season. With colder and colder temperatures, not to mention those brutal Polar Vortexes that have been experienced already, keeping warm is important. We hope that we may have some items that will do just that for you, or for gifts for friends and loved ones.
Thank you to all who joined us for our 20th Anniversary Open House & Sale
here at Whirlwind Ranch November 7-9, 2014. The weekend saw hundreds of visitors and many returning smiling faces. For the holiday shopping season we will be OPEN on Thursday-Saturday from 10am - 4pm from Nov. 28th- Dec. 20th and no appointment required. Can't make those days or times? Not a problem, just call us to arrange an appointment time, or shop on line.
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.
