Our Ranch

La Dolce Vita Alpacas is located on the out skirts of Ramona California; about an hour east of San Diego.  Here in the foothills of San Diego County, our ranch is at about 2,000 feet elevation so it is cooler than the surrounding areas.  Ramona is a wonderful farming community.  This gives our operation access to great services and ranch resources as needs arise.

When you arrive at La Dolce Vita Alpacas, you will find a clean, well organized farm.  Our alpacas are well cared for and attended to on a daily basis.  We have a lovely steel barn which centralizes the care and handling of our alpacas with a generously stocked medicine room.  All the equipment necessary to provide top notch attention to our herd is readily available at our facility. 

Our ranch is a fully enclosed 10 square acres.  Our corrals, land and barn are easily  accessible so a visitor can safely tour the entire property to see the whole operation. The 6 foot perimeter fence is electrified for extra safety.  Our wonderful Great Pyrenees also participate in the care and safety of our alpacas and will give you a warm welcome when you arrive.

We have terrifically healthy alpacas and a great breeding track record because of attention to detail and familiarity with our herd.  Basic grooming, nail and teeth care are well attended.  Our alpacas are also better at ease with people because of our consistent routines and positive reinforcement.

You can relax at La Dolce Vita Alpacas.  We like to mix business with pleasure because, after all, it is a pleasurable business.  We welcome and encourage you to explore our farm and this website.  But most of all, we really look forward to meeting you and teaching you about alpacas.


La Dolce Vita Alpacas is a full service ranch offering comprehensive sales and services to our clients.

The care and nurturing of alpacas is our passion. We are here to assist and support you in developing your dream farm.

Shearing Day!!!
