Visit Our Ranch

What to Expect when Visiting Us…

Welcome to Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch. We breed, raise, show and sell alpacas. We have close to 55 alpacas out in pastures or inside the barn. We have alpacas for sale from National Champions to gelded fiber males and in between. As a working alpaca ranch, everything we do and the rules around the ranch are related to the safety and protection of the alpacas. We love talking about alpaca ownership, showing them and our alpaca livestock lifestyle. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Alpacas are a prey animal and therefore a “petting zoo experience” would not be fun for you. Spit can happen! We offer our “Getting to know alpacas and alpaca ownership class/tour” as well. It is an educational, hands on tour by advanced reservation only. By the end of the tour/class, you will have a basic idea of alpacas and the alpaca lifestyle. We offer additional education opportunities to get you ready for caring for our alpacas when you are ready. These class/tours are $25/person. We limit the size of the tour to approximately 6 guests which gives us the chance to work with each participant. We are a quiet and peaceful environment. We have guard dogs and a llama to help protect our herd. Visitors with dogs will need to keep their pet(s) in their car. Domesticated dogs are the number one predator to alpacas. Alpaca babies or crias are normally born during the spring and summer.

We raise pigs … each year, during May – Dec, we toss treats like pumpkins or other vegetables over our pigpen fencing as a treat! Something different to do…watching pigs in action! We also raise grass feed beef and honey bees on the ranch. While the store has been moved to online only, it has the same products from our alpacas as well as new items from other farms and ranches. If you have questions related to the online store, please use the chat button on the website or call us.

We look forward to introducing you to our alpacas and the ranch! If you have questions about your visit, please call Jennifer at 503-407-3699.
