Welcome to our farm!
CJ guarding his alpacas!

Wings and A Prayer Alpacas was established in 1998. Our original goal was to enjoy our animals, the lifestyle they offer, and maybe even make a little "extra" money for our future. Our alpaca adventure started with just one female and has grown to close to 100 animals.

Prior to alpacas, Randy worked as a Journeyman Mechanic and Barbara was an executive secretary. When our herd kept growing and we were running out of day after working away from the farm and then coming home to "do the alpacas", we realized something had to change - and fast! Randy quit his "paycheck" job in May of 2003 to operate Wings and A Prayer Alpacas full time. Barbara's job was permanently eliminated in July of 2003 and we have been full time alpaca farmers ever since, never once looking back. We feel very fortunate to have found alpacas when we did, and have been able to "retire" from our normal J.O.B. (Just Over Broke!). These animals are our passion AND our livelihood.

In 2007 Wings and A Prayer Alpacas moved to our current farm in beautiful Amity, OR. Amidst the wineries and rolling hills we have finally found "the farm" that will support our animals and our quest for serenity and room to spread out. We are very easy to find, located on the way to the Oregon coast, Salem, Portland, and, did I mention wineries?!?

We also have a retail alpaca store located on the farm. Store is open by appointment - please contact us to schedule a visit. You'll find hats, scarves, socks, gloves, etc. in a variety of colors, sizes, and prices. What a great feeling it is to have the complete circle, from raising our alpacas to the finished products, made from their incredible fiber.

Our herdsires have taken Wings and A Prayer Alpacas to a new level and we have many visiting females (and assorted crias) coming and going for breedings. We have a complete color range from black to white suris, males, females, weanlings, bred females, pet/fiber animals, and packages. Our farm is open, by appointment, to anyone who wants to come by and see or talk about alpacas, whether you are seasoned breeders or merely interested in learning more about alpacas and the lifestyle they offer. We welcome you to come and see what alpacas are all about!

We also raise Great Pyrenees puppies as livestock guardians - ask to be added to our "puppy list" for future litters. Our number of litters varies each year and we always have people waiting for puppies. Many of our customers are repeat customers, having either bought a puppy years ago and looking to bring in a puppy to train, or just looking to add an additional guardian to their farms.

And.....ask about our Alpacas 101 experience or our AlpacaTrek! Both are an introduction to alpacas up close and personal.
