It wasn't until we reached our mid-forties that our hearts longed for the serenity of the rural life. After owning a couple places around the countryside, we've just recently settled on a ten-acre place south of Ardmore and about eight miles east of I-35.

Several years ago we fell in love with Alpacas and decided that's what we wanted. We began with five cats and three dogs, and thirty acres. It took time and a lot of work to turn our place into an alpaca-friendly ranch, but we were driven!

We began our herd in early 2008 with two pregnant female alpacas, along with two female Great Pyrenees watchdogs. Our dreams are now a reality!
