Since retiring from teaching in 2000, sisters Mickey and Evelyn began a whole new venture breeding and raising alpacas. These gentle and intelligent animals have been our full-time pleasure. In 2009 the Alpaca Barnhaus was ready for vacation renters.
Nature abounds with mountain flowers, hummingbirds, eagles, deer, elk, rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels, and more. Just open the door and walk in any direction to discover the blessings of the natural world. To make your stay at the Alpaca Barnhaus really unique, Mickey and Evelyn invite you to learn about their wonderful alpacas and what alpaca ranching is all about. Their two livestock guardian dogs, Tinker and Belle, are people friendly, too. In June 2014 we're expecting the births of two alpaca babies. In May the alpacas are sheared. Bags of the most incredible fleece are collected for sale or to be made into rugs and yarn. We have a store featuring quality alpaca products. Come and experience this special area as well as the alpacas. This part of New Mexico is truly enchanting.
