Maryland's Premier Alpaca Ranch

Our Story

Maryland’s Black Barn Alpacas Ranch is owned by the animal-loving couple Travis and Yussy McManus. Travis was raised on a cattle ranch, and Yussy grew up riding horses—cementing their love of farm life from a young age. The couple lives on the ranch and looks forward to greeting the alpaca herd every morning with nose boops (and an extra handful or two of food). 

Travis manages the farm team, and Yussy leads the Y Interiors design team, dreaming up home goods made with genuine alpaca fleece. Together, they intend to expand Black Barn Alpacas, delivering well-bred animals, quality fleece products, and unforgettable experiences. Take it from the experts; there is nothing more rewarding than being able to snuggle up to an alpaca every day!

Alpaca Breeding Program

At Black Barn Alpacas, we are creating a premier alpaca breeding program focused on producing show-quality or “typey” black and gray alpacas through sustainable and caring farming practices. By way of strategic, sustainable, and compassionate breeding, we aim to produce fine-quality fleece, champion alpacas, and a happy herd.

The Shoppe

Shop Locally Made Alpaca Fleece Clothing and Home Goods

 

We are a real working alpaca ranch, producing some of the finest quality fleece around. After we shear our fuzzy alpaca friends, we turn fleece harvests into one-of-a-kind apparel, home goods, and accessories. Shop our collection of alpaca fleece products and some of our favorite Texas finds. There’s nothing as soft and durable as alpaca fleece!

⌛️ Time to hang up our Winter coats!

This weekend is the FINAL weekend to see our alpacas in all of their floofy glory! In less than one week we will be shearing our 100+ alpacas 🦙 

Be sure to schedule your visit this Saturday or Sunday if you want to see the alpacas before their annual haircuts. Once shorn, our alpacas will look like what we endearingly call ‘bobble heads’ or ‘lollipops’ (equally as adorable as with their long locks). 

Shearing is very important for sustainable care. Alpaca  fleece keeps growing, so after a full year it can be anywhere from 3-7 inches long and weigh between 5-10lbs.  With the impending warmer weather, imagine how hot and uncomfortable they would be without shearing!
