Farm was established in 1990 when we obtained our first llama, Dakota, as
a wedding present from Gary to Katrina. Since then, many more of
these regal, magical and mystical creatures have arrived.
Located in beautiful upstate New York, just south of Saratoga Springs,
Dakota Ridge Farm is situated on 42 acres of woods, creek side, ponds and
We also offer farm tours and educational visits.
established the 4-H Club "The Woolly Llama Whisperers" and brought llamas
into the Saratoga County Fair for the first time in the early 1990's.
We canít say
enough about what our venture into the llama industry has done for us.
Llamas display a serenity and dignity that is regal, quiet, stress
relieving, and awe-inspiring to say the least. What began as a hobby has
provided immeasurable joy to us and our family of boarders.
From our own herd of over 30 llamas, we offer animals that will fill a
variety of purposes. You may be looking for a lovable companion, a show
animal, a pack animal, a guard, or a source of exquisite fiber. Having
carefully bred the best to the best for almost 20 years, we have produced
a collection of top quality llamas. Many of our llamas come from the
famous Berry Acres Llamas (BAL) and they raised very elegant, large,
conformationally correct llamas that were consistently winners in the show
rings across the country.
Our doors are always open (RSVP please) to visitors, so come by and share our joy in
raising llamas. We have always been here helping new owners and it is a
pleasure for us.
