About us


Lynne Johnson, the owner of Sauk Creek Alpacas, has been breeding alpacas for 14 years. After seven years agisting her growing herd, she bought a five-acre farm located just 10 miles south of Madison, Wisconsin, and became a hands-on alpaca breeder.

Sauk Creek Alpacas has built a herd of fine quality huacaya alpacas. We have some of the best known bloodlines in North America--Peruvian Accoyo Caligula, Hemingway, PPeruvian Accoyo Felix, NWA LTD Accoyo's Goldsmith, Conan, PPeruvian Emilio, PPPeruvian Royal Fawn, Snowmass Royal Star and PPeruvian Guellermo--represented in our herd. 

Operated with the highest of integrity, Sauk Creek Alpacas is breeding alpacas with dense fine fiber, calm dispositions and rock-solid conformation. Our efforts are rewarded annually in the show ring with blue ribbons and color championships.

The alpacas of Sauk Creek are registered with the Alpaca Registry, Inc. We are members of Alpaca Owners and Breeders of America (AOBA), AOBA Show Division, Alpaca Fiber Cooperative of North America, Alpaca Registry, Inc., Midwest Alpaca Owners Association, Upper Midwest Alpacas and the Great Lakes Alpaca Breeders Association. 

Recently retired after almost 24 years as senior director of communications at the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the fundraising arm of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Lynne is now breeding alpacas full time.

Lynne, long active in the alpaca community, is one of the co-founders of the Great Midwest Alpaca Festival, which had a successful 11-year run at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. 

A former journalist, she  spent much of her career in the newspaper business in Wisconsin and in Orange County, California, where she was entertainment editor for a local daily newspaper and later executive editor of the Orange County Business Journal. She also owned and operated a public relations firm prior to her return to Wisconsin in 1990. She has published articles on the business of breeding alpacas and conducted seminars on marketing.
