Alpacas offers cool oak woodlands and
rolling green meadows for the alpacas, and a view of
the Santa Barbara Channel Islands on a clear day, all
on 20 acres nestled against the mountains.
16 years in Hope Ranch we outgrew our three acres and feel
very blessed to have found our little bit of heaven in Carpinteria,
California, just 15 minutes south of Santa Barbara. We invite
you and your friends and family to stop by to feast your eyes
and to feel the exquisite fiber on these gentle, exotic animals.

is of utmost importance to us — we walk and talk
and play with our alpacas!
