come to play on the farm, making nesting balls, feed the alpacas, and shop in the boutique.  There is something for everyone..

Alpacas All Around is a California alpaca farm, established in 2004, in Loomis which is 30 minutes northeast of Sacramento, CA. We offer alpacas sales in CA (and for transport throughout the U.S. and Canada), alpaca product sales at our farm, alpaca breeding services, and we invite you to schedule an alpaca farm tour to learn more about alpacas and the alpaca lifestyle. If you are looking for alpacas in California, or just thinking about raising alpacas or starting an alpaca farm, we can help you learn more and get started.

Sacramento River train Great Train Robbery Experience

Great Train Robbery


Ride back in time to the Wild West. Each ticket price includes a 3.5 hour train ride, a Western show, and a barbecue buffet lunch. Both kids and adults will find something to love amid the scenery, gun-slinging, and picnic buffet.

On this 3.5 hour trip, we’ll roll over the Fremont Trestle and through some pretty countryside. As the train passes Robber's Roost, keep a weathered eye on the horizon for greedy outlaws. Luckily, we have the Marshall on board to keep things safe — he may need to teach those old crooks a lesson! Later on, we stop at Elkhorn Park for a delicious Western buffet lunch by the river.

The walk from the train to the park is approximately 100 yards. Please discuss this with our reservation staff if someone in your party could have a problem making this distance — with advance planning, we can arrange to make a vehicle available to transport you. While we have some seating at the park, you may also like to bring a blanket to picnic on the shady grass. If weather conditions are poor, we may remain on the train for lunch.

Homeschool High School Dances

Father & Son Right of Passage event: Loomis /One Sunday evening monthly for 7 months / 7-9th grade boys

Wow, what an opportunity!  God bless men who step up to help disciple our young men.

This is the second year that my son and daughter have had Mark Johnston as a teacher. He is passionate about the Word, and discipling children, challenging them with wisdom, service, and proper attitudes.  I met Dan Biddle through Genesis apologetics trainings, and have found him too to be a godly man, enthusiastic about sharing the truth of God's Word.  - Michelle

Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack

Dear Homeschool Network Families,

A personal note from me (Heily)……..

For the past seven years, I have been the volunteer coordinator for the Feed My Starving Children mobile pack that comes to Rocklin in October.  Each year, hundreds of homeschoolers have turned out to help pack meals, almost three million of them now! Thousands of children’s lives have been saved! J  It has become a tradition for many homeschool families so I am again letting you know about this opportunity, should you want to join us. This year we are packing 500,000 meals!  We need 3,000 volunteers to help us assemble those meals!  Please consider joining us for a two-hour shift.  Six shifts are available during the October 20-22 event that is held at William Jessup University in Rocklin.

Registration goes live this Friday, September 30th at 8:00 a.m.  You can sign up your family any time after that, if you are not already a part of another group that is. Spots have historically filled up quickly (thanks, in part, to amazing homeschoolers!) Just a few things to keep in mind:

Ø  Please no children younger than 6, for safety purposes. There is also an adult-to-child ratio that needs to be followed.  This ratio can be found at the website under “Questions and Answers” as well as other frequently asked questions.  Please take a minute to review this information. 

Ø  The names of everyone attending will need to be entered into the system. 

Ø  An e-mail will come out about a week before the event with information about what time to arrive, where to park, what to wear (and what not to wear), etc.  Please be sure to share that information with the people in your group. (if you sign up more than just yourself)

Ø  The local FMSC committee has to pay for all the meals that are packed at our mobile pack.  The average person packs about $48 worth of food in a two hour shift.  For example, if you bring six people to the mobile pack, you will pack app. $288 worth of food.  Any donations to help pay for the food would be greatly appreciated, although donating is not required to pack meals.  There is more information about donating on the website.

The website:  (Click on “Register to Pack Meals” to register or on “Questions and Answers” for more information)

Mobile packs are fun and high energy!! Serving in this way will send a meaningful and powerful message to your children.  If you would like to see how a mobile pack works, here is a video:
