Welcome to La Mancha!
Active Retirement! How we love it! Only wish we'd started long ago! We began in the fall of 2007 with the purchase of one pregnant female. Now we number around 40. We love our lifestyle and sharing our story. We welcome your visits, your questions and will be happy to share with you everything we've learned along the journey. We love to talk 'alpaca' and are open to farm visits most anytime. Just call and tell us when you'd like to come. We are off the beaten path, so let us give you the best directions to find us easily.
We are currently listing more of our alpacas on this site, so let us know if you see something you like that is missing details, photos, etc. We'll be happy to get that to you asap.

ALPACA SHOWCASE & FAIR, MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND in ELIZABETH, CO. was great fun! It was wonderful to see so many of our alpaca friends, that we don't get to see very often, and find out what they are up to. We made lots of new friends, and answered lots of questions about alpacas and why we raise them. Dr. Signe Balch talked to us about getting ready for cria season and reminded us of priorities in checking out the new arrivals and some new ways to handle the unexpected. We love our vet!
Had a wonderful time at GWAS (The Great Western Alpaca Show) in Denver. Took six alpacas, came home with 3 ribbons! We're very happy with the outcome. Maria & Socorro enjoyed their last competition in the show ring. They will be bred this summer and start their career as production dams. We'll look for further recognition of their greatness in fleece shows and in the accomplishments of their offspring.
Maria took 3rd place in the 2 yr. old halter class for Light Brown females.
Socorro took 2nd in the 3 yr. old halter class for Medium Fawn females.
Cinnamon Rose took 6th in the yearling halter class for Medium Rose Grey females.
