What you'll do

We’ll greet you at the main parking lot as soon as you arrive. The Livestock Guardian Dogs will usually beat us out the gate. Don’t be alarmed! They’re quite large but very people friendly. After a brief introduction we introduce you to our alpaca boys! They are quite inquisitive and will come up the fence to greet you. Many days a group of our turkeys will be out for a stroll. They can be quite entertaining! Across the road from the alpacas are our sheep pens. Learn about rare this breed and why we choose to raise them. Next we will move to the chicken coops, where we collect our own eggs. Then meet Ginger and Spice our very naughty, very spoiled miniature horses and feed them some treats. We’ll take you into one of the most important places on our farm, The Shearing Shed, and show you how we shear and collect their fleeces for processing into yarn. On the way to meet our girls (alpacas) where you can hand feed some treats or alfalfa, you’ll enjoy a pleasant walk around our Airbnb cabins as well as taking in the views of the surrounding countryside. When available we can give you a sneak peak inside one. Step into our shop for some light refreshments and to see and feel the products made with our animals fiber. There are unique gift items and yarn available to purchase as well as souvenirs. Sit back and relax on the patio as a perfect end of your visit.

Lyn & Mark

My husband and I have owned and operated the Gulf Breeze Alpaca (and Sheep) Ranch and Lodging at Lake Corpus Christi since 2007. Soon after welcoming my first alpacas home, I developed skills in processing their fiber, starting with learning how to shear them. After learning how to shear and process the fiber into batts, roving and yarn, I opened my shop and studio on the farm, where I teach spinning, knitting and wet felting & needle felting. I offer handmade and commercially made items and yarn in my shop. My husband and I offer educational and entertaining tours of the ranch to groups and families throughout the year as well as offering lodging through Airbnb in 2 cute cottages and our RV.
