About Us at Unique Alpacas

Our California Alpaca Farm

Unique Alpacas was established in November of 2007. Our alpaca ranch is located in Jamul, California, 20 miles east of "Americas Finest City"—San Diego. Our alpaca journey started like many others, with a TV commercial. From there we had an immediate interest in these beautiful and gentle animals. The interest grew into months of lengthy Internet searches, ranch visits and alpaca shows.

One day while speaking with a business partner, he mentioned a family friend that owned a large alpaca ranch in Mora, New Mexico (Victory Ranch). I persuaded him to make a call so we could visit for three days and work on their ranch with over 200 alpacas. The experience proved to be invaluable and before we left the ranch we purchased our first alpacas (three females): Angel, Bethany and Sopa. They were soon joined by others and the herd continued to grow with carefully selected acquisitions of full Peruvian and full Chilean genetics. We have formed our foundation herd from the best blood lines in Peru, Chili & the United States.

Our herd development and breeding criteria have been implemented with full Peruvian and Accoyo genetics for the white, beige and brown colors and full Chilean genetics in the grey and black colors. "An alpaca is just an alpaca until it's Unique"

Our bloodlines include: K-2, Accoyo Peruvian Caligula, Accoyo Peruvian Felix, Accoyo Peruvian Leon, Accoyo Peruvian Peter the Great, Peruvian Pay Day, Sinopsis Nocturna, Patagonia's Midnight Mojo, Crescent Moon's Kryptonite, and Avalon's Black Total Eclipse.

By forming a ranching operation, we're able to provide clients with full support and offer a variety of high quality alpacas at affordable prices. Our intent is to deliver Unique Alpacas into a full-service operation providing a complete business and alpaca ranch support service... "From Start Up To Success."
