Fence Lake, New Mexico
High Country Alpaca Ranch, located in west central New Mexico, is a full time alpaca livestock operation that offers our facilities for your relaxation and enjoyment. Established in 2009 by John and Carolyn Fifield, High Country Alpaca Ranch prides itself as a super clean, well maintained ranch where one can easily commune with nature and animals alike.

The ranch sits at 7560' and is surrounded by Pińon Pine and Juniper trees. The barn, pastures and paddocks were well thought out and constructed in a manner that is conducive to excellent animal husbandry and human interaction.

There was a snowfall while we were there and our girls were in heaven frolicking in the snow. The Bunkhouse is part of the High Country Alpaca Ranch and we enjoyed seeing the alpacas with their cute faces being guarded by a pack of Grand Pyrenees dogs.

The Bunkhouse really is a misnomer because the house is a beautiful manufactured home with every amenity possible including a dozen farm fresh eggs waiting for us in the fridge. DVD's games and hundreds of books and magazines are there for your enjoyment, and you will want them because the house in little Techado (Fence Lake) is 50+ miles from any kind of stores and shopping. We took two sides trips to Gallup (the Code Talker Museum) and Grants passing through the amazing El Malpais National Monument with sandstone cliffs and a huge lava field from an...
