Dancing Elk Alpacas

 This is Us!


We founded Dancing Elk Alpacas after a conversation over supper with some good friends. As empty nesters, we were excited about taking an opportunity to make a big lifestyle change. We had grown up with cattle and swine, and their kids were always in 4-H, so they had basic knowledge of raising livestock and were passionate about alpacas.

While researching the business, we visited some amazing alpaca farms, made many close friends, and gained some valuable mentors. Most of all, we saw true passion, exuberance, and sincerity in these alpaca farmers, and knew we had found a community where we belonged. Today, our network of friends and mentors stretches from coast to coast.

A Passion for Alpacas

Raising alpacas is hard work, but we relish the experience. The daily chores give us the opportunity to establish relationships with all of our alpacas and get to know each one's individual behaviors and health status. Even scooping poop provides a sense of relaxation, and the dogs love to ride along on the 4-wheeler when pulling the manure spreader.

The alpacas are beautiful, intelligent animals that know their names and come when called. We love coming home each day to a herd of alpacas that jump and run with excitement at their arrival.
