RanchoNC Alpacas at "Rancho Nuevo Comienzo" (our personal ranch name) is located in the foothills of Northern California, in Valley Springs.

"Ranch of New Beginnings" is exactly what it says and has a lot of meaning to us. What are the chances of a firefighter/alpaca breeder from California and a truck dispatcher/alpaca breeder from Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada, meeting at the International Alpaca Judging School (IAJS) in Peru, becoming friends, falling in love and eventually marrying in California? It does happen…

David is now a certified AOBA and IAJS Judge in Huacaya and Suri halter, fleece and performance. Brenda attended judges training under IAJS in 2001 and AOBA in 2002. Combined we have over 32 years experience in all areas of alpacas. Our experience includes breeding, marketing and sales, showing, farm management and animal transportation in both Huacaya and Suri's. Together we have brokered several very large and small deals taking pride in our ability to connect the buyer and seller and put together a deal that is beneficial for everyone.

Over the past 8 years we have worked hard to make RanchoNC a facility that caters to new and established breeders who are looking for an honest, ongoing and hard working relationship. We provide a complete line of services from breeding stock or stud services to training, boarding, herd assessments and brokering. RanchoNC will provide all this and the finest customer service and support found anywhere.

Our breeding program focuses on the production of alpacas with exceptional health and conformation as well as outstanding fiber. We strive to improve our fleece with every generation by selecting herdsires' with proven genetics. We constantly endeavor to improve our knowledge of fiber production from the animal to the mill. By taking a hands on approach with local mills as well as mills across North America we stay current with the processes and products that are developing constantly. We truly believe in our slogan "Alpacas the World's Finest Fiber".

In 2006 we began ACE, Alpaca Continuing Education, where we bring the industries best to educate breeders in fiber, conformation and heritability. Classes focus on skills development to promote better knowledge and help both new and established breeders to become more successful.

For the new breeder we can help you work out a personal business plan to make your investment in alpacas not only profitable but also enjoyable. To the experienced breeder let us help you grow and diversify your herd to continue in your success. Regardless of your experience level, spend an afternoon or a couple of days relaxing and learning with us in the beautiful foothills of Calaveras County. You'll find the experience exciting and David's smoked pork ribs are second to none!

So, direct yourself to Northern California, we're about one and a half hours from the Sacramento airport, come see the ongoing changes, building and progression of RanchoNC Alpacas.
