We have an alpaca ranch in northern California. We also have riding horses. We have a herd of 40 alpaca and our business is breeding and sales of alpaca. The horses are not for business but for pleasure riding. I travel with the horses for riding all around northern California. Our ranch is close to San francisco, ski areas, and other California sites. See the ranch on our website.

The ranch is run by my husband and I. My husband Dave is retired and runs the farm. Though we list only one helper we would be open to two who may come together. Both Dave & I are dog and cat lovers, but because of the livestock, no large dogs can be housed. Some experience with some type of livestock is recommended, and experience with horses would be necessary.

Our home is about 3 miles from a small town, but driving may be necessary. We live on the farm that we are setting up for our alpacas so lots of work to do. We have television and WiFi.

We have a big extended family, 4 grown children and 9 grandchildren who live nearby, so family members and children may grace the farm on many weekends.

There are duties we would love if it is something you are proficient in, such as cooking, but if not that is o.k. Some light cleaning and picking up is required. The main job would be ranch work, helping with keeping animal areas clean. We would teach the helper how to handle and care for the alpaca. The most important work is providing help with the care, exercise & feeding of the animals, along with the ranch work.

We are only a few hours away from the San Francisco Airport and the Sacramento Airport, both are international airports.
