Having never owned lifestock before, we carefully considered the implications of investing in the alpaca business. We looked beyond the doe-eyes and the cute babies to the business model and the daily tasks, and agreed that the 'alpaca lifestyle' appealed to us on multiple levels.
Aragon Alpacas breeds for fineness of dense, colored fleece, the ultimate product of our "green" ranching business. And the additional advangages — working with inquisitive, intelligent animals, and fertilizing gardens and vineyards with "alpaca gold" — are fun, too!
In keeping with 'Shop Local', our Farm Store & Gallery offers a wide selection of alpaca wearables for you and your home as well as yarn and fleeces from our herd. Most items are proudly crafted in Eugene or in Oregon. Store hours are generally 10-4, Thurs - Sun, and we welcome farm tours by arrangement.
