Our Alpaca Journey

We’re a passionate pair living out our dream and raising a lively (and prize-winning) herd of alpacas.

May 2017

We purchased 10 acres in Prescott Valley, AZ to start our farm.

September 2017

Zaynah, our very first alpaca entered our lives!


We have a quickly expanding herd of 32 alpacas.


We hope to grow in numbers and have farm full of love!

Our Story

We are Brian and Valerie, owners and caretakers at Plum Creek Alpacas.

We left Lake Havasu City, Arizona to get out of the extreme heat and enjoy the great outdoors. We enjoy the four seasons offered in Prescott Valley and the peacefulness of watching our alpacas, chickens, and dogs. 

In addition to our lively animals, we currently have an orchard full of both apples and plums.

 Valerie has quite the green thumb and is looking forward to having a green house this spring which will soon be full of herbs, vegetables, fruits, flowers.

We knew we wanted to raise livestock and explored the countless opportunities and possibilities but since cows and llamas are larger than what we were looking for, we began researching alpacas. With their unique personalities, adorable faces, and exquitsite fiber that we love sinking our fingers into, how could we resist?

In March 2017, we bought our very first alpaca Zayna. Zayna is carrying our first crib which is due approximately April 22, 2018. Shortly after buying her, we purchased land in Prescott Valley and began setting up our farm, enjoying the lessons learned each day since.

Since then, we purchased more alpaca and now are at a happy 27 with plans to add more  and expand through the year. Presently, we have 12 confirmed pregnancies due early fall of this year and are looking forward to our growing herd!
