Are you looking for a locally owned alpaca farm to visit? Search no further than Foothills Alpaca Farm. We are the trusted ranch for various alpaca breeders in and around the Backus, MN area. Over the years, we have also made incredible items from our very own alpacas. We shear them once a year to harvest their wool, or what we call “fiber.”
Established in April 2006, Foothills Alpaca Farm started with a pregnant female and a juvenile female. Before even having the animals moved from the farms we purchased them from, we lost the juvenile female to an allergic reaction to a vaccine. Determined to start our own alpaca farm, we purchased a pregnant female and her 3-week old female cria. We have grown in the last decade and we treat our alpacas like our children.
