We appreciate your interest in visiting Blue Moon Ranch. As of January 2016 we have several new options available to you.
A. Shopping in the Yarn Barn If you would like to shop in our store for yarn or other fun alpaca items, we will be open to accommodate your schedule when you request a time to come at no admission fee. Please note, this option does not include a ranch tour Option D below. However, you will most likely see the alpacas, since it’s pretty hard to hide them! 😉 Please text 801-898-0145 to request a time, or email email@example.com 24 hours notice is appreciated
B. Interested in purchasing alpacas? We have many alpacas for sale. If you are interested in seeing our breeding stock or fiber animals, or would like to spend time discussing alpaca ownership, please know that we are happy to talk with you. We will answer your questions and share our 19 years of alpaca experience with you. Please text 801-898-0145 to request a time, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time. 24 hours notice is appreciated
C. Quarterly Open Barn Days We schedule open barn days throughout the year, at least once per quarter with free admission. Those days will be announced on our website and on our Facebook page. Or you can sign up for our newsletter to find out about these special events. Open Barn days in 2016 were Feb 13, May 21, August 6, Sept 24 and 25, Nov 26 and Dec 17. Hours and details for 2017 will be posted on our calendar page.
D. Full Ranch Tour Have friends or relatives visiting from out of town? Need to find a fun activity? Maybe we can help. Tours of Blue Moon Ranch will include interesting history of alpacas, a close up visit with the alpacas, and a demonstration on how fleece is spun into yarn. We will allow time to answer all your questions and then see the products for sale in our farm store, “Yaya’s Yarn Barn”. The tours will be offered at $20.00 per person with a $5 credit per person to be offered on any purchase in the store. The tour will last approximately 1 hour. Kids under 12 $15. Under 2 free. Please note: children must be kept under control by an adult at all times. A credit card will be required to hold your time. We request that ranch tours are scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. Minimum group size is four adults, maximum groups size 10. You can schedule tours by emailing email@example.com. Times available are usually 11:00 am and 2:00 pm most days of the week, other times by request. School groups and seniors please contact us for special pricing.
We do not offer mini-tours, quick drop ins or short visits. Anyone who comes seems to end up staying for at least an hour anyway, so we prefer you schedule a full tour if that is your interest. Thanks for understanding.
Please note: All visits are weather dependent. Heavy snow, rain or temps below 20°F might have us reschedule. Driving directions click here.
We host our Fall Open Barns days each year at the end of September so everyone can see the alpacas and the things we make from our annual fiber harvest. This is our biggest event of the year. We will be open both days from 10 – 4. Open Barn Days 2017 will be September 23 and 24. We hope you will join us.
Cell phone reception is minimal at the ranch. Text 801-898-0145 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for quickest reply. Text and email gets through to our phones while calls usually do not.
We love dogs, but our alpacas do not, so we ask that you leave your dogs at home when you come to visit. Our livestock guardian dogs have a job to keep all other dogs out of the alpaca pastures and they take this job quite seriously.
Frequently asked Question: “My kids saw the alpacas on TV and just want to come and pet them. Is this OK?”
The truth is that most alpacas do not like to be petted. Some will stand still for it, most will not. We do not allow our younger visitors to chase the alpacas in order to touch them. We have created a safe environment for the alpacas here and we believe that the way to keep them healthy is to minimize stress. Thank you for understanding.
