This is Apollo


As the lead male alpaca on the farm, he's the first to get a kiss in the morning and the first to eat in the morning. But he's also just one of many alpacas who thrive here, all of whom we consider family. Without them, our operation would not be possible.

Alpaca is one of the most durable natural fibers. It is super-soft and hypoallergenic. 

The alpaca family is growing at Lion Gate Farms! Valentino was our first baby alpaca (Cria) born here. He is now three years of age, confidently taking his place among the other male alpacas. And we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of two more babies in July of 2017 as two of our female alpacas are pregnant.

These are the Maremma LIVESTOCK Guardian Dogs


Permanently living with the alpacas, they take their job very seriously as the protectors and companions of the herd.

Our four Maremma livestock guardian dogs are descendants of the Tibetan Mastiff. They are originally sheep dogs from central Italy.

And thanks to them, we never fear for the safety of our alpacas. So far they have killed two coyotes, four possums, squirrels, rats, chickens, and a deer. Frankly no creature wants to find itself within the fence line.

These are the Bees


Responsible for producing what has been called the most 'sublime' local honey, they are extremely healthy, happy, and hardworking.

These are the Bees


Responsible for producing what has been called the most 'sublime' local honey, they are extremely healthy, happy, and hardworking.

There are over 500,000 bees on the farm spread across seven chemical-free beehives.

The bees wake up with the sun and it can be so exciting to see them return with pollen packs attached to their legs – even during mild winter weather when nothing is supposed to be blooming. We don’t open the hives every day unless the team senses there is a problem. Normally we check each hive every two to three weeks.
