about sandy acres





Sandy Acres Alpacas, our 5 acre ranch is located between Riverbank and Escalon, California.


We purchased our ranch in 1992, at the time we started with a horse and a few dogs. About 1995, we decided we wanted to do something different. Just about that time a commercial came on about alpacas.

IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.


We started with geldings, and of course we wanted more. We wanted babies, so we purchased one pregnant female. Our goal was to have five females within five years. Needless to say, we have exceeded that number. So instead of quantity, we decided to concentrate on quality. We think that we are getting close to that goal.
