About Our Ranch

Located in the Heart of Oregon Alpaca Country

ALPACAS of Tualatin Valley (ATV) had its beginning in 1988 on 11 acres of secluded property. In 2003, we expanded onto 45 acres of prime farmland where we are located just ten minutes from our famous neighbors, Intel and one mile from The Reserve Golf Course! Comfortable accommodations, fine dining and easy shopping are also within a few minutes drive.

We maintain a herd of approximately 100 North American alpacas producing superior offspring from some of the best genetics in the Nation. We specialize in fawns, reds, browns and black in our Suri and black and gray in our Huacaya.
