Tis The Season to LOVE Alpaca
Double 8 Alpaca & Llama Ranch is located in beautiful western Loudoun County, Virginia which is approximately 50 miles from Washington, DC.
We also offer educational farm tours for your family or groups. During your hour-long tour you will meet and learn about the animals on our farm and experience up close encounters with our furry friends so you may take memorable photos or selfies. We are now also offering hikes on our farm with our llamas and alpacas. The hike experience also includes the tour of the farm. The hike is about 45 minutes as we walk around our scenic farm and up a short mountain to pose on a boulder for photos. Please click the link "Book a Hike, Tour or Wedding" button to reserve your experience.
We have been raising alpacas and harvesting alpaca fleece in a sustainable and healthy way for ourselves and our community since 2005. We chose to raise alpacas due to their gentle nature and exquisite fleece, also called fiber. Concentrating on sound conformation, reproduction, noteable genetics, temperament, and fleece charastistics are the main goals of Double 8's breeding program. Production females, herd sires, stud services, and non-breeders are available for purchase.
The nutrition and training of the alpacas and llamas at Double 8 Alpaca Ranch are of utmost importance. We believe that a nutrionally sound and well-trained animal is a happy and healthy. Our alpacas and llamas can be handled for routine health tasks such as weighing, toenail trimmings, deworming, shearing.
The fiber that we harvest from our herd is either sent to mill or hand processed here at the farm. We sell yarn, roving, and products such as socks, hats, scarves, gloves, and felted items, some hand-made and some made at our mills.
Double 8 Alpaca & Llama Ranch is the host farm to the Loudoun County 4H Alpaca Club. The 4H youth get to learn on our farm how to care for, train, and show alpacas and llamas at the Loudoun County Fair. Our farm has many other gentle animals such as horses, chickens and dogs that provide unconditional love to anyone who visits.
Double 8 Alpaca & Llama Ranch offers an array of services, such as consulting with and mentoring new alpaca and/or llama farmers, farm tours, weddings, birthdays, and educational events for local school, 4-H, girlscouts and boyscouts. Even the German Consulate and a couple local veteran groups have come to learn about farming with alpacas and agritourism here at Double 8 Alpaca & Llama Ranch.
