About SoCalpaca

"We exist to promote and protect alpaca as a viable agricultural industry in Southern California."

The Alpaca Breeders of Southern California (SoCalpaca) was founded in 1998 by a handful of dedicated, passionate, alpaca breeders. We are proud to be an affiliate of the national Alpaca Owners Association (AOA).

Our members are our greatest asset. We are committed to providing the Southern California community with a wealth of alpaca knowledge and experience. We know what it takes to succeed in a region with its own unique challenges to the agriculture industry.

We welcome you to visit us, meet our beautiful alpacas and learn about these special animals. Be sure to check our Events page, chances are good there is a Southern California alpaca event near you.

Join us, we’re living and loving the alpaca lifestyle!
