Welcome to Whistling Pines Ranch!

Our farm is located in the rolling hills between Clayton and Prairie Farm, Wisconsin, where we raise Suri alpacas.
We are both a breeding and fiber farm, and offer some of the finest genetics in the country. Our focus is to ensure that each new generation is better than the parents with respect to fleece characteristics and conformation, and our goal is to maximize fleece density, fineness, and consistency on a conformationally-correct frame. At Whistling Pines Ranch, we utilize both objective measurements (e.g. fiber analysis & skin biopsies), and subjective measurements (e.g. show placing and judge comments) to assess the quality of our animals and to ensure that our breeding program continues to move forward. Thus, our clients are getting the high-quality animals needed to move their programs forward as well. We also feel that there is a certain degree of predictability that we can forecast for an unborn cria, based on the traits recorded for the parents.

Our animals are treated with respect, and having a small herd allows for daily interaction with the animals. We were raised with strong values and we apply those values to our day-to-day interactions with not only our animals, but with clients, potential clients, and visitors, as well. We have been blessed to have met and worked with many great people in the alpaca business over the last several years, and we sincerely look forward to meeting new people in the future. We would be honored to assist you in starting or expanding your herd, be it show animals or fiber. Feel free to call for an appointment to stop by and look at the animals and/or products that we have to offer.

Thanks for stopping by!
