Llamas

Nanci Sutton is among a growing number of boomers and Gen-Xers nationwide who are becoming hobby farmers. Five years ago, she and husband Ken sold their Glendora home and bought a 7 1/2 -acre ranch in Apple Valley to raise llamas. Their menagerie now includes 25 llamas, five goats and three peacocks. Sutton said it's not a moneymaker. "The animals are therapy for me," she says.
