Connect with California Alpaca Farmers!

The California Alpaca Breeders Association (Calpaca) is the best place to find alpaca farms in California and beyond! In California's tradition as a pioneer of progress, Calpaca was the first—and is the oldest—regional alpaca association in the Northern Hemisphere and has been a leader in the American alpaca industry since 1989.

Calpaca represents alpaca owners, breeders, and enthusiasts. We promote the well-being of alpacas and education of the public about alpacas, alpaca fiber, and alpaca products. We support each other through shared information and experiences, and host meetings, speakers and shows for the benefit of members and the public. We invite you to join us and become  part of a supportive network of caring and helpful alpaca owners.
