Visiting Windy Hill

Cindy Harris Alpaca Cria Windy Hill

Opportunities to Visit
Because we are a working ranch and not a "zoo", we offer
periodically when we welcome the public to come see what we do here and meet the alpacas. See our EVENTS page for dates.
Strollers are welcome. Bring your cameras, but no pets, please.
Open Ranch Day is FREE to the public.
Map & Directions

Are you curious about the possibility of starting an Alpaca Business? Maybe you want to live in the country and escape the "Rat Race" like we did. You may have children you would like to raise with animals, or be interested in sustainable farming with livestock, or be nearing "retirement" and want something productive to do. Perhaps you are looking for a more tangible investment than the stock market provides and need some real tax relief... It's even possible to get your herd started with no property of your own--we will board your alpacas and teach you everything you need to know to be successful!
Whatever your interest in the Alpaca Business, we are available to help you explore it. Let's plan a meeting soon, or come to one of our classes designed to learn more about the business. See EVENTS.
Please call Cindy at (805) 907-5162, or email us at

Life on the ranch is fun and relaxing. Our local climate is generally mild, but when you visit be prepared: wear flat closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, a hat, a jacket if it's cool, and be ready to get some dirt on your clothes. Our Anatolian Shepherd Molly loves to have visitors and insist on being petted, also!

If you have a scout troop, a school group, or a club, we encourage you to come on one of our Open Ranch Days. Keep your eye on our Events page for upcoming opportunities.

***SPECIAL NOTE: Group Tours involving a bus or van need to call for special arrangements. There is a fee for organized groups.

"The first time I met Cindy was when I came out to AWH to meet the alpacas and learn about the business.  I had a couple of pages of questions regarding the animals themselves as well as the business opportunity.  As we wandered around the ranch, Cindy answered all my questions and began my education on alpacas and being an alpaca rancher!  She's always my go to with any alpaca question and she's always willing to answer those questions and/or discuss.  I've been in the business 4 years now and I've never been happier ~ Thanks to Cindy!!

"Cindy can be relied upon to share everything you need to know about alpacas and their fiber. She doesn't just tell you what to do, but gives you the full picture and guides you in making your own decisions.  Always with a smile and a twinkle in her eyes, she will teach you with hands-on experiences and help catch you if you stumble as you gain confidence. A teacher through and through, she enjoys the victories of others she as much as her own.  She's my mentor and hero! "
