Alpaca 101:

 Learn about the history of the alpaca, why we raise them and how we care for them. You’ll learn some of their quirky traits and other interesting facts.  You may hand feed the alpacas if you like; this is a great opportunity for photographs! This tour includes a mini-seminar on how we work with the fiber, from washing and carding, to spinning and felting, and will give you a brief history of spinning fibers in yarn.  Spend some time in our boutique where you can find beautiful, handmade items by local fiber artists made from alpaca fiber, as well as luxurious scarves, hats, sweaters and gloves. There will be a craft for everyone to do.

 Absolutely no pets allowed inside the gates of

the ranch, even if left in the cars

Come let our alpacas delight you with their inquisitive & gentile nature, but be aware

. . .they just might steal your heart!

Catch yourself some Gold Fever and be a Forty-Niner!

There’s gold in them thar hills!

 Gold was discovered in California in 1848. Imagine travelling a thousand miles just for a chance to find your fortune.  After you arrive, you will be greeted by local miners bearing the news of the mother lode.  Head straight on up the long tom sluice, the mine and the gold fields!  Get supplies on credit and start digging and panning!

 Throughout the day you’ll learn about 49er life, including the feuds between the farmers and the miners and how gold was found. You might even learn the hard way about supply and demand.  How could someone be charged $100 for a glass of water, and $1,500 for rent?  Find out how millionaires made their money as you watch the price of gold!  Buy low, sell high!  Make sure you visit the Assayer to sell your gold for as much as you can!

 You’ll get a break for lunch at high noon, during which you are served a light miner’s ration. If that’s not enough to fill your belly, make sure to stop at the General Store and bakery for food items like our famous 5 pound pie. (Or make sure to bring your own lunch).

 At the end of the day, count up your currency and

participate in an auction where fortune-seekers bid on

prizes for their hard work.
