Long Description:
Located in the North Valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Albuquerque Alpacas is a nice place to visit. The farm breeds Alpacas and has a shop on-site where you can buy Alpaca related clothing and yarn.

From the Albuquerque Alpacas website:

Albuquerque Alpacas is home to an established herd of quality huacaya alpacas. We are located in the North Valley, on the east side of the Rio Grande River. The historic Acequia Madre irrigation ditch flows adjacent to the ranch transforming the desert into lush, green pastures where our animals graze and frolic.

The rural setting is just minutes from Interstate-25. It is surrounded by the greater metropolitan area and all it has to offer in terms of recreation, cultural points of interest, and a wide range of amenities.

Our goal is to offer a wide range of colors in varying price ranges from show to pet quality. One of the many benefits to having a small farm is the ability to spend time handling each of our animals from the impressionable early days until they go off to their new homes. This approach allows us to develop a respectful, trusting relationship with all our alpacas which makes herd management chores a breeze.

Our breeding philosophy is straight-forward. Pucara Accoyo Waimea is the exceptional herdsire we are currently using in our breeding program and offering clients for breed-back packages. In addition, we research high-quality outside breedings to enhance the attributes of our own foundation females as well as the pregnant girls on our sales list.
