Faber’s birthday bash was a resounding success! Our little guy enjoyed all of his friends and fans stopping by to see him and wishing him well. It was a cold and blustery day, but the critters didn’t seem to mind. They were all very pleased with the extra treats that Faber’s big day supplied for everyone!
We have finished our last open barn for this year, but we will be open for last minute holiday gifts. If you find yourself in need of some of our cuddly alpaca yarn, give us a call, text, email or send us a message on social media and we will do our best to help you get what you need. If you would like alpaca goodness shipped to a special person and are out of state or unable to come by the farm, we would be happy to help in that respect as well.
In other news, the flock has been enjoying the wet weather we are finally receiving. They spend most of their day out in the fields pecking at worms and bugs that have sprung to life with the rain. All of the hens are now laying and we receive between 5-7 eggs /day in an assortment of colors. Henry, the rooster, keeps busy watching over his girls and finding yummy treats for his favorite hens. He has decided Farmer David is lots of fun, and asks to be carried around and hugged often.
The alpacas are also enjoying the cooler weather and rain. They spend most of the day in the barn and the evenings enjoying the fields. They are all getting ready for the holidays and the new year when we will open the barn back up for more visitors. They are also working a a very special treat for their fans, that we will introduce soon!
