We saw this on your web site. Called "Mike" the owner to get more information. Sounded like fun to us, we enjoy different experiences. We made a date with him to visit, off of his regular visitor day schedule - which we really appreciated. He was very informative, explaining so much about the alpaca's, why and how he got involved.... More

We called in and were the only visitors at the time. Mike and his mother were so friendly and gave us so much information and time. We found out things about the production process in a really interesting way. Mike has the personality, sense of humour and technical knowledge to make this a really great visit. The babies were a...

We got a tour of their wool processing facility. Got to feed the alpacas. There were two babies: a 3 day old and a 6 day old. Amazing how much they do at that young an age. Owners very friendly and talked with us for a long time. they have a great operation and a good life. It's a little... More

We came to Suncrest Orchard, and it was our best experience in Palisade. The owner was super friendly and showed us around his Alpaca wool factory at no cost, and we purchased some amazing Alpaca wool products like socks and scarfs. We will definitely be back!

This was a great little find for our eight year old. It was super informative and super cool to get to lead the Alpacas around the orchard. The owner was very informative and we actually learned a lot about how they make the yarn from these animals. All that for $10 bucks a person! What a deal.

On our road trip through Colorado, we stopped to visit Suncrest Orchard Alpacas. We were 2 adults and 2 boys, ages 11 and 7. Mike introduced us to the alpacas and we had a lovely walk through his beautiful peach orchard. The alpacas were gentle and sweet, and we were all in love with them. Mike was very generous with...

When visiting Palisades you think and read about wineries. It's time to do something else or in addition to the winery thing. The answer is GO ALPACA. Mike the owner took us on trek through the orchard. Two young males who once we got by the female pens were obedient and docile. He than took us through his Alpaca fur... More

Seeing these little guys is pretty great. You can feed them as they come up to you. Don't plan on spending a ton of time though!

On a recent trip to Palisades, we stopped to visit Suncrest Orchard Alpacas. Mike met us as we drove up and offered a tour. He was so interesting as he explained how to raise, feed, protect, shear and mate the alpacas. We also had a tour of his fiber processing area and learned so much about preparing the fiber for...
