We Invite You to the Wonderful World of Llamas

The Wonderful World of LlamasAs a community we were looking for a business adventure that would be rewarding and compatible with our life style as Benedictines. Llamas were the perfect choice. These gentle animals have a contemplative spirit and are easy to care for in addition to manifesting a majestic presence on our beautiful prairies. You are welcome to visit our hobby ranch.

We received our first two llamas in July of 1994. The number of llamas varies. We have llamas for sale for breeding, pets, and guard animals, as well an abundant assortment of fiber for spinners and spun yarn for knitting. We will offer limited herd sire service. All of our llamas are registered. We strive to raise quality llamas with excellent conformation with a tendency to have abundant fiber.

Joan and CocoWhat are llamas good for? This is a frequent question. Llama fiber is used for fiber production; llamas themselves are used for breeding and showing, predator control especially for sheep, pets, grazing to control leafy spurge, and pet therapy. Last but not least, llama fertilizer is one of the best there is.

If you are thinking of buying a llama, this page will give you a brief description of llamas for sale. However no matter how much you read about llamas there is nothing like hands-on-experience. So give us a call and come for visit. See the type of fencing and sheds needed, walk with a wooly companion, ask lots of questions and make new friends over a cup of coffee with the Sisters.

If you are interested in fiber for spinning or knitting or crocheting let us know. We can make individual skeins of yarn to your specification. We also sell llama wool items made by the sisters such as pouches (great for change purse or rosary), felt purses, neck scarves etc.

We periodically give workshops on contemplation and spinning.
