Hello! Welcome to Shady Meadows Alpaca Ranch. We are a small but growing breeding and fiber production farm. We are building our herd on some of the finest bloodlines around and work closely with our friends at Crane Creek Ranch Alpaca in our selective breeding program.

Founded in in 2014, we have as our goal a metered approach to herd growth with focus upon the quality of the animals and the fiber they produce. Beginning with just 4 animals that year, we grew to 27 in Spring 2017. This spring we are at 7 alpaca on the farm.

We are located 15 miles north of Joplin, Missouri just off of Highway 43 on Pine Road in the picturesque farmland of southwest Missouri. Access from Interstate Highways 44 and 49 is convenient and food and lodging is readily available in Joplin, Carthage and Pittsburg, KS.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcome guests to come visit, learn, and fall in love with these wonderful animals.

With richest blessings,

As of December 31, 2018, Dale and Nina have retired from the alpaca operation. Jeff remains as the sole member of the LLC.
