Deitrick's Alpaca Ranch

Prophetstown , IL

Welcome to Deitricks' Alpaca Ranch! We raise Huacaya alpacas and are currently home to 70 alpacas and have 2 more due this season. We raise alpacas for breeding and for their amazing fiber.. Alpaca fiber is the second most exotic fiber. It is lighter weight and warmer than wool and as soft as cashmere! Our specialty as a fiber farm is natural, un-dyed farm raised yarn, roving and felting items from our fiber as well hand knit scarves, cowls, shrugs, hats, hand woven rugs and other products made directly from our alpaca fiber. We also focus on alpaca education and do group educational tours where participants can meet, feed, pet and learn about the alpacas and the alpaca lifestyle. Please contact us if interested in scheduling a ranch tour! We offer special programs when available such as alpaca story time and crafts. Weekend hours available by appointment, please call!

Mission: Our mission as a family ranch is to continually improve our herd both in quality conformation and in fiber fineness and to always appreciate these amazing animals throughout our journey.
