Our Staff

Meet the Team!

Here at River Hill Ranch, our alpaca family is made up of more than just alpacas. We are blessed to have an excellent team of dedicated “ranch hands” which keep our Ranch up and running smoothly. You very well may see some (or all) of these lovely faces at our market events or on your next visit to the ranch. Learn more about these awesome folks below!


Owner/ Operator

Alvina is the crazy/weird one that started this perfectly imperfect patch of paradise. As an Air Force investigator, it was a natural fit to become a ranching, business-owning, stay-at-home Mom. Not taking herself seriously and sarcasm have served her well in the transition. Ranching and fiber arts have been  great ways for her to both enjoy and keep from killing her two wonderful children who are now reaching the age where some of that free child labor is starting to actually happen.

In all seriousness, Alvina thoroughly enjoys the lifestyle ranching provides her family and is grateful to be able to share this life with others. Read/watch videos about more of her story and passion in the various media stories about her here in the In The News section.
