Quality fiber production and women in agriculture are the primary goals of the farm. The bulk of our fiber is graded and sent on to a co-op for processing. Gaye spins, weaves, and knits and is building an inventory of handmade products for a future online store.

Alpacas & California Red Sheep


Our farm is nestled in the middle of the self-proclaimed Zinfandel Capital of the World, in the Northern San Joaquin Valley of California. Our family farm is operated by a mother-daughter team, Gaye & Gina. Our farm support consists of husband David and children James & Magen.

It suffices to say that after 45 years of working as a Registered Nurse plus raising thoroughbred horses for 30 of those years, that our farming goals were more than ready for change. The horses are gone and the alpacas moved in and Vello Vellon was born.

Since we are located on the Lodi California Wine Trail, stop by when you are out tasting as we are always ready to meet and greet.
