Butterfield Alpaca Ranch is nestled in the rolling hills of south central Nebraska near the Harlan County Reservoir. With a focus on the luxury fiber produced by these elegant and graceful animals, we raise both the Hucaya and Suri alpaca breeds. Our stores carry items made from our own herd's fiber and other American alpacas. There is something for everyone - from the fashionista to the fiber artist. We are proud members of the Alpaca Owners Association, working to improve the quality of American alpaca fiber products.

Make a visit to the Ranch a part of your next getaway. A visit with the alpacas and llamas make for memories. The Harlan County Lake is a great place for a family vacation, group retreats, or a last minute weekend adventure.

Alpaca products are available at our store in Alma, NE and online. We proudly sell American Alpaca - grown and crafted in the USA - including a growing selection of exquisite American alpaca yarn.
