We wanted to break up our drive from Bend, Oregon to Redwood National Park with an overnight around Medford, Oregon. As animal lovers, we chose to stay at the Alpaca Farm at Lone Ranch, run by Richard and Renate, a husband and wife.
Richard and Renate built their Alpaca farm as their second retirement. The couple set out goals for themselves: they wanted to live in peace, contribute to the community, and they wanted to work together as a family. Thus, they created Alpacas at Lone Ranch.
As soon as we entered the Alpaca farm, we had ear to ear grins and could not help but laugh hysterically. The alpacas are beautiful creatures and they’re very interested in humans. They kind of reminded us of large puppy dogs who were incessantly curious about their human counterparts.
