Save the date! The weekend of Sept. 25-26th we will be participating in the 4th Annual National Alpaca Farm Days celebration.
Over the past three years, we have joined with alpaca farms all over the country in hosting an open-house weekend for the public. Carloads of visitors kept us busy for 2 days as we answered questions and introduced our alpacas. Again this year, you will be able to observe the alpacas close-up, dig deep in a bag of luxurious shorn fleece, shop for alpaca socks, scarves, and teddy bears, and enjoy cookies and juice. There will be informational material available, as well as a spinning demonstration by Louise Nuttle of Dry Creek Alpacas, for those interested in the fiber aspect of the industry.
Mark your calendars and come see us!
