December 30, 2017 (Ramona) – La Dolce Vita Alpacas invites you to spend New Year’s Day at their 10-acre ranch in Ramona, which will host an open house on Monday, January 1st from 12 noon to 3 p.m.

Learn about alpacas and their history, pet or feed cuddly alpacas, watch a wool spinning demonstration, and have an opportunity to purchase alpaca yarn and products made from alpaca wool. 

Admission is $10 per person (no charge for carried infants)

This event is subject to cancellation due to foul weather (heavy rain, extreme winds, fires, etc.).  This is a working farm with uneven terrain, dirt, loose rocks, and two friendly dogs so guests are advised to dress appropriately.

If you are interested in purchasing alpacas or large quantities of yarn, please email Susan at, or call at 619-672-7683 to schedule an appointment.

The ranch is located at 24901 Bareta Star Rancho Road, Ramona, CA 92065.
