Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch is an 18 acre ranch on Hwy 213 in Molalla, Oregon. We are directly in between Molalla and Silverton. We have 85+ huacaya alpacas. We breed our animals for the fineness of their fiber, with a soft handle and solid density. Our goal is to create a long term fineness in all our alpacas that mimics the feel of cashmere or better. Presently more than half our herd is under 20.5 micron. We have white as well as a variety of other colors of alpacas. Did you know that there are 22 natural colors of alpacas as defined by the Alpaca Registry? Bill is a retired AOA Certified Fleece and Performance Judge. His education helps in the purchases and breeding of our alpacas. In the future we will be holding seminars on fleece evaluations, breeding selection, business plan write ups and fiber arts. If there is a topic you’d like to learn about, we’ll find the instructor and create the class. Or you can just stop by and we would be happy to answer your questions. We have a large fleece room dedicated for presentations and a ranch store for a quick pick up gift for yourself or someone special.
Our herd consists of seven studs we either fully own or own in partnership. They are Snowmass Trilogy, Ezekial's Challenger of Marquam Hill, Marquam Hill's Avitar, Crescent Moon's Clement, Crescent Moon’s Ezekial, Perfection's Encore of Hummingherd, Crescent Moon’s Accoyo Elizario, Accoyo America Kodiak, Skyline's Romeo and Emerald Cloud's Javelin.
We look forward to hearing from you!
