Welcome to Alpacas of Anza Valley
Our 10 acre ranch, Alpacas of Anza Valley (AAV) is conveniently located in Anza, CA half way between the Temecula vineyards and Palm Desert along scenic Hiway 371 at 4,000 feet elevation were we enjoy all four seasons. As a full service ranch, AAV offers a variety of sales, stud services and boarding arrangements.
We started with four pregnant females in September 2004 and grew to over 60 in less than 5 years. Our clients become friends and enjoy all the opportunities to learn everything about alpacas when they visit their herds. Eight award winning studs in a variety of fleece colors, density and fineness to improve all types of females, call AAV home. Ask about the introductory breeding fees and see the new cria that these fabulous males sired this year.
Our focus encompasses educating the new breeder to become successful from the start. One of our educational tools is the popular Alpaca Business Secrets Power Pack. A set of audio downloads filled with 7 hours of expert advice and tips for the new breeder. Julie selected and interviewed each of the experts to create this incredible package of wisdom.
We also offer an eBook called Alpacas Made Simple and an emailed newsletter called Profiting with Alpacas. As a certified business coach, Julie loves to inspire people to create their desired lifestyle, even before they take the alpacas to their property.
Julie became a trained mid-wife and was personally tutored by Dr. Anita Dennison to offer a variety of herd health care treatments. In the spring/summer of 2012 we welcomed in our 91st birth on the property. Both of us take pride in supporting a healthy environment for all new crias and enjoy creating friendly and respectful alpacas.
Don supports the community as a computer doctor & webmaster. In addition to serving as the ranch manager for AAV he still lends a hand and assists new breeders with their ranch lay outs and computer needs.
