Southwest Regional Alpaca Show
The South West Regional Alpaca Show was a great event. We had wonderful weather, an outstanding judge and over 200 beautiful alpacas. Looking forward to next year!

Square Top Ranch is located in the rolling grasslands of Sonoita Arizona, in the state’s Southeastern region. Sonoita is part of the Mountain Empire which also includes Patagonia and Elgin. This region is home to a growing vineyard industry, horse and cattle ranching, a rural lifestyle and more recently the beautiful alpaca.
Our first encounter with an alpaca was at the local county fair, and from then on our interest and involvement in learning more about these gentle creatures grew. After ranch visits, classes and gleaning as much information as we could, and then doing a little soul searching, we bought our first alpaca. We haven’t looked back since.
Since purchasing our first alpaca in 1999 our herd has grown to 20-30 alpacas depending on the season. Our idyllic yet profitable lifestyle has become a reality. Our business includes raising and selling these wonderful animals and related alpaca products, as well as boarding for other owners.
Our goal is to breed and raise conformationally correct, fine fleeced animals with gentle endearing personalities. We concentrate on hands-on individual attention; our personal care for each individual animal ensure its health and happiness. The results are alpacas that are people friendly and easier to raise and handle.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being an alpaca owner is the lifestyle and the chance to meet others who love and care for these amazing creatures
