Welcome ya’all to Melody Moon Ranch Alpacas, where our love of great music and alpacas come together to create a one-of-a-kind alpaca ranch experience. Nestled in the Central Texas Hill Country in Driftwood, we founded Melody Moon Ranch in 2005 when we purchased one of the “purdiest” pieces of land in the area. While packing to move from our home in Austin, Texas we stumbled across a box of papers in the attic from my childhood and low and behold, there it was, a report I’d written in the 6th grade about Peru and the most fascinating animal I had ever seen, The Alpaca. What are the odds?
That was all it took for us to begin our new adventure. With a little research on these amazing gentle creatures, we found that alpacas would be kind to our land, profitable, easy to care for, and help us fulfill our dream of living in the country, leaving the hectic city and getting back to the land. So, inspired by the lyrics of the great Guy Clark, we literally got off our version of the LA freeway, headed out to establish new roots…to Driftwood and alpacas, our new life.
