About Us

Thank you for your interest in Foggy Bottom Alpacas.   Founded in 2008, Foggy Bottom is an elite breeding farm, home to over 100 Huacayas.  Our commitment to this exciting industry is to operate our business professionally and ethically and to actively promote the combination of breeding and fiber product development as a legitimate business model.

We are a family operation, owned by Sara, Barb and Mark Bender, located on 20 rolling acres in Isanti County, one hour north of the Twin Cities, conveniently located close to major cities and highways.  We welcome your inquiries and invite you to visit our farm anytime…..get to know us and allow us to get to know you.


Foggy Bottom Alpacas and Over the Rainbow Alpaca Ranch merged in January 2018.  This has allowed us to rise to the top as one of the top breeding farms in the state of Minnesota.  We pride ourselves on being a leading seedstock farm for other breeding farms in the region.
