Welcome to our website. WeatherTop Alpacas is owned by Rick and Chris Starkweather. We hope you enjoy your "virtual" ranch visit and look forward to scheduling an in-person ranch visit with you soon. We are located in the beautiful rolling hills of Prescott, Arizona. WeatherTop Alpacas began with the purchase of our first animals at the beginning of 2003. Since that time, we have focused on a strategic breeding program that is reflected in the quality of our herd.

We offer proven quality from the bloodlines of Dom Lucilio, Augusto, Quijote, Royal Gold, Felix, and Victor to name a few.

Alpaca Sales
We offer quality, proven genetics from nationally recognized blood lines. When you purchase an alpaca from WeatherTop, our service does not end with the sale. Friendly on-going support is given to all of our customers. We also provide full disclosure, so you can be certain you have all of the facts about the animal you are purchasing. If we know it, you will know it! Any female purchased from us comes with a free breeding back to the WeatherTop herdsire of your choice, so you are always guaranteed a package deal! A live cria guarantee is provided for all bred females. We also offer delivery of your alpacas in certain areas.

Alpaca Products
Visit our on-line ranch store today for beautiful alpaca products made from our own alpaca fleece, as well as others. Check back often, as new items are being added all the time. We are currently working to build our store at the ranch, but we will be happy to display these wonderful soft creations for you to enjoy and purchase when you visit until the store is up and running.

Every time we breed a female, we do it with that next great stud in mind, so you can always expect exceptional herdsires from WeatherTop Alpacas. Every breeding comes with a live cria guarantee, and multiple breeding discounts are available. When your females come for a breeding, you can rest assured that your girls and any crias at their side will receive the same exceptional care that we provide for our own alpacas. You will receive constant updates on your girls and breeding progress reports. All pregnancies are confirmed through ultrasound. Don't like sending your females off the farm? We offer drive-by breeding services to certain areas of the state.

The animals entrusted to us enjoy the same comfortable, safe lifestyle and TLC as our own alpacas. Rick is at the ranch full time, so your animals are not left alone for extended periods of time. We also have close-by access to excellent veterinary care. All alpacas are provided with shelter, daily pasture time and the best quality hay and supplements available. We conduct monthly herd-management days to monitor the health and well-being of all of the animals. Frequent communications will keep you informed about how your alpacas are getting along. Our agisting fees include care of the pregnant dam, birthing, cria care, weaning, training and routine injections and herd maintenance. The only additional costs you incur are veterinary fees. Call or email us for additional information.

Love alpacas, but don't want your own ranch? You can invest in an alpaca and let us do all the work! We will take care of your alpaca(s) and handle breeding, marketing, showing and sales for you! Call or email us for details.

Alpaca Ranch Tours
We offer ranch tours for group outings, bus tours, and school field trips. This is a great way to get up close and personal with the alpacas, learn about their history and what it takes to care for them. You can also visit our ranch store for great alpaca products and souvenirs. Contact us to set up a date and time.
