Jane Levene has grown her alpaca operation to include two ranches in Colorado. "They are the most incredible animal," says Levene. "They will do just what you ask them based on the face that you are who you are. I don't need big burly guys or specialized equipment to help me handle them. I can do pretty much everything I need to by myself."
Fleece from Levene's alpacas is spun and sold as Jefferson Farms Natural Fibers.
From a career in medicine and living downtown Denver, Colorado, to operating a multi-location alpaca farm might be a stretch for some people…but not for FarmHer Jane Levene. Jane owns and operates Jefferson Farms Natural Fibers, a business where she raises alpacas and markets their fiber.
