Property Description

Live your dream of owning and operating a turn-key alpaca ranch in the heart of Southwest Colorado, near the vibrant town of Durango. Centrally located, Pleasant Journey Alpacas sits on 35 acres of farm and ranchland South of the La Plata Mountain Range and West of the historic downtown area. The property is surrounded by lush pastures, open meadows, and incredible mountain views in every direction. This is a place to enjoy nature, family, friends, and guests. The business is multifaceted and includes alpaca breeding and sales, showing, boarding, ranch tours, and retail sales from alpaca fiber products. The owners also have a successful Harvest Host RV program, which brings additional business to the retail and tour operations. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom residence was built in 2012 and has several recent upgrades, including new siding, exterior painting, and kitchen updates. The home has comforting natural tones throughout, wood floors, tongue & groove wood ceilings, ample cabinetry, large countertops, a large kitchen, and an open floorplan. Take in sweeping views of the snowcapped mountains from oversized windows in the living room and kitchen areas and watch the playful crias (baby alpacas) interact with each other from their pen right off the covered porch. The ranch's heart is the primary 40’ X 96’ barn that houses the operations center, several stalls, hay storage, heated vet/fiber room, and full bathroom. This space includes a 20’x 30’ workshop with 220 amp service currently used for woodworking projects. Adjacent to the barn is a 12’x24’ alpaca fiber store where the owners sell goods related to their collection of alpaca fiber, yarns, and woodworking projects. The alpacas are a young, proven herd with many show awards and desirable genetics. They are housed amongst 9 different paddocks with 10 metal loafing sheds and multiple pastures for both the male and female alpacas. There is an additional 25 acres of irrigated pasture leased by a neighboring rancher who runs cattle to maintain the grasses' health. This could be an expansion area for the current business or developed for other livestock. Everything is included in the sale for the property's continued operations, including but not limited to the alpaca herd, tractors & implements, trailers, store inventory, feed, and much more. Growth opportunities exist by expanding the agri-tourism component, adding an AirBNB rental, developing more Harvest Host RV business, expanding the herd, and/or adding additional livestock or farming components. The owners have been excellent stewards of the property and have grown the business from the very beginning. They will train and be available after a sale to the new owners of the property. This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy a unique and fulfilling lifestyle on a beautiful property in a special corner of the world.
