    All of the animals on my sales lists were either selected and purchased by Bob & Barb or raised on our farm here in the heart of Wheat Ridge Colorado.  I am not a broker. Every alpaca is friendly and easy to handle.    

     Hance Ranch is nestled at the east base of the Rocky Mountains, minutes from downtown Denver and only 40 minutes west of Denver International Airport, a half mile north of Interstate 70.   

   Our breeding program was started  as a retirement project, and has been in operation since 1990.  I  have a few breeding females, both Huacaya and Suri, all are “ARI Registered". They have: Bolivian, Chilean, and Peruvian blood lines with most of the wonderful natural colors. 

   Improvement of conformation and fleece quality have been our prime objectives.  Our hands on breeding ensures valid dates on bred females.  We have always been a major "support system" for the animals we have sold and the breeders we sold to.     

Mary Hance, our daughter-in-law, & our son Ken Hance (who were our helpers) moved to Tucson, AZ for his job 2 years ago, and our grandson, A J, is in his last year at Western State, in Gunnison, CO. And Bob died in September of 2014.   Barb can no longer handle the HANCE RANCH operation, so I have had to find helpers. I sincerely need to find homes for our beloved critters..
