The Tenino Alpaca Ranch is located near the rural town of Tenino, Washington which achieved national fame during the Great Depression. After the local bank closed, the town government temporarily issued a wooden money scrip for use locally when cash was scarce. However, most of the wooden money was never redeemed as it became a collector’s item.
This scenic ranch has views of both Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, and gorgeous territorial views. This property, which was a former racehorse reproduction and training facility, offers lower grazing areas in the numerous irrigated fenced pastures, pond, and separate fenced paddocks. There are over 120 indoor stalls designed for horses. The upland and timbered areas and pasture provide excellent grazing for livestock as well as wildlife habitat. Tenino Alpaca Ranch is home to a variety of wildlife, including Roosevelt Elk, Black Tail Deer, bear, winter fowl, quail and wild turkeys. The owner has leased the property out to big game hunting, but under very strict guidelines to ensure and maintain the hunting opportunities for years to come.
