We visited Victory Ranch as a stop on a long road trip. My daughter is infatuated with alpacas, so we wanted her to be able to meet one in person. Surprisingly, the stop at Victory Ranch became a highlight of the trip. The kids enjoyed a great lesson on alpacas, and we all enjoyed Darcy and Brian's hospitality. Great gift... More

Visited on way from Santa Fe to Colorado Springs. Kind of out of the way, but worth it. It's an alpaca farm. Staff is super friendly. Our guide Brian was great!! Kids loved him and his stories. Feeding the alpacas was one of the highlights of our 3 week trip. Soft, cute and fun to be with. Store sells everything... More

I remember this ranch when it was a cattle ranch. My family and I stopped in and had a wonderful time socializing with these beautiful animals, our hosts were so knowledgeable and very gracious, the store is a very nice touch. Recommend stopping in. We truly enjoyed our visit.

We have visited the Victory Ranch on many occasions. North of Las Vegas, NEW MEXICO about 25 miles, you’ll find a pristine setting for this Alpaca Ranch. Our favorite spot is the store in which you’ll find items made from the wool of these extraordinary animals. Our children are ‘out of the house and grown’ so we were not interested... More

You can't go wrong with a trip to Victory Ranch. The scenery is spectacular, the folks and the livestock are friendly. The store carries a wonderful selection of handmade items.

This was our second visit to Victory Ranch. Since I'm an avid knitter, I love visiting the store and seeing the animals. The alpacas are just too cute, and the dogs and llamas are part of the ranch. It's a scenic ride from Las Vegas, Santa Fe, or Taos, not that long of a drive. We've always been greeted at... More

I took this trip reluctantly since I was not comfortable venturing too far from Santa Fe (this is my first time visiting this state) The drive was very scenic with mountains. This ranch is located out in the middle of nowhere and my cell had a hard time with gps. I suggest printing directions. While pulling up to the ranch... More

Wow...off the beaten path, but worth every minute. I found this ranch via RoadTrippers (app) by accident. My daughter (10 years) and I visited while we were spending time on spring break in Santa Fe. The drive from Santa Fe was easy and took about 90 minutes and was very scenic. Brian (our tour guide and owner) and his wife... More

Brian gave an informative and fun tour. Loved feeding and petting the alpacas and dogs. The gift shop also has a fun mix of alpaca yarns (identified with the picture... More

You must experience this amazing place for all ages. The gift shop is the perfect holiday shopping and everyday that you need something special. The tour feeding the Alpacas is for every age. My 6 year old visitors to Mora were just as delighted as my 85 year old in laws. There is something for everyone on your list. Now... More
