Argonaut Farms is located in Siskiyou County, near the base of Mt Shasta, in the beautiful foothills of Northern California. They say there's something magical about Mt. Shasta. Perhaps it's the clean air and marvelously pure water, or some other mysterious something, but magic seems to happen here... Ask us about the story of Athena.
We raise our alpacas with loving care, shear them every spring, and use their beautifully soft, warm fiber to make yarns, roving for handspinners and other fiber artists, meditation mats, energy mats, rug, hats, scarves, baskets and all manner of things!
You'll also see a free-ranging flock of chickens on our farm, along with a pair of guinea fowl. The guineas are great at keeping down the ticks and snakes, and actually serve as watchdogs, as they make a loud fuss when anything is amiss. We have two Livestock Guardian Dogs, Maremmas, to guard our alpacas, as well as our trusty cat, Monet, who keeps down the mice and gophers around the place.
If you want to learn about alpacas, click on our "About Alpacas" page. Check out our "What's Up" page to see what's happening on the farm, and see our new products in our "Farm Store" and be sure to see the videos on the "Gallery" page. And of course, feel free to send us your comments and questions on the "Contact Us" page.
We hope you enjoy visiting our site and that you find something here to brighten your day!

Rick and I have both had some health issues in the past year or so, and have had to find new homes for our alpacas and Sentinel, our Livestock Guardian Dog. Sweet Bella, our other LGD passed on to greener pastures last year. We miss them all! I'll leave the site up for a while since the videos and pictures are fun to look at.
