Camels of Camel Hill Vineyards

Welcome to the camels of Camel Hill Vineyards. We have been raising Bactrian and dromedary camels for many years, and we are one of the top four breeders in the United States. We have established a white gene color in our camels, which is extremely rare and sought after in the industry. We are constantly learning new breeding and birthing techniques, and we are one of a few breeders who successfully uses intrauterine rotation if a fetus is breached.

Camels are intelligent, sensitive, and social animals that are easy to care for. Our camels receive excellent care and training, are groomed regularly, and receive a great deal of attention. Socialization begins as soon as a calf is one to two weeks of age. We are fortunate to have Karen Gaines as our camel groomer and socializer for all of our camels. (See Grooming and Socializing in the pull-down menu above.)

Here is a list of our adult camels by species. The female Bactrians are available for breeding, and the Bactrian male is available for stud service. Each camel has a distinct personality, and you can read about and see a photo of each camel just by clicking on his or her name.

Babies and Camels for Sale

At Camel Hill we offer a limited number of baby camels for sale throughout the year.  These babies are allowed to nurse with their mothers. We interact with the baby camels on a daily basis to assure that they are gentle and easy to handle and begin their basic training at approximately four weeks of age. The common color for camels is light brown; however, through selective breeding we have established a color gene that produces white offspring, which is extremely rare and in great demand.
