Rolling Oak Alpaca Ranch

Farms & Orchards

See the alpacas, feel the fleece, learn about workshop practices, shop the store at this mother-daughter owned alpaca ranch.

The dream began when daughter, Morgan, was searching for a softer yarn to make her crocheting goods with. Not finding a local supplier, she decided to learn how to raise, shear, skirt, and spin alpaca fiber into yarn. Since then, the ranch has expanded and visitors can now meet the alpacas, learn about alpaca farming and shop the farm store. Local, handmade, Alpaca products include: Yarn, felted goat milk soaps, dryer balls, shawls, socks, toys and more!
