Home of Hidden Paradise Alpacas

Welcome to!

As the name indicates, we were raised in Chicago; Mike on the northwest side and Anna on the southwest side. Upon retiring, we wanted to live close to our beloved "Sweet Home" Chicago, yet wanted to try our hands at "living out in the country raising a few animals". Thus, Hidden Paradise Alpacas was born.

We are located approx. 1-1/2 hours southwest of Chicago, just off of Interstate 80, in North Central Illinois, an area known as the Illinois River Valley. This part of Illinois is home to the friendliest people, the best fried chicken and the most beautiful land including Starved Rock and Mathiesson State Parks.

Hidden Paradise Alpacas is in Granville, north of town. We are currently sharing our adventure with alpacas, llamas, donkeys, rabbits, dogs, miniature horses, sheep, goats, cats, and birds including chickens, ducks, and guineas.

Hidden Paradise also offers an on-site gift shop, featuring alpaca fleece apparel and collectibles, and an on-site sign shop, creating custom signs, banners, decals, magnets, etc., to accomodate your needs.

You are welcome to visit our hidden paradise to meet the animals, learn about them and maybe consider adding alpacas to your life. We offer alpaca breeding, sales, and tours. Call ahead for directions. We welcome your visit.
