The final countdown…

The folks and the critters here at the farm have all been busy, busy, busy!  Farmer David has been cleaning up fence rows, fields and the barn, the alpacas have been busily munching down their fields, the chickens have been on bug patrol, Ross, the barn kitty, is keeping varmints away and Mason, the Wonder Dog, is in charge of security.  Momma Christine has been experimenting with handmade soaps, organizing the medical supplies and heading up the media.  We are a little crew, but we do mighty things!

All of this is happening so we can welcome folks to our little slice of heaven this weekend for National Alpaca Farm Days, and we are in the final countdown (do you hear the music??  Is it stuck in your brain yet?  You can thank me for that this weekend).

We will open our gates and our barn doors to the public, no appointment necessary, on Saturday, Sept 24th from 10 am to 6 pm and again on Sunday, Sept. 25th from Noon until 5 pm.  We will have yarn from our animals on hand, raw fiber from this years clip, and  be taking pre orders on alpaca socks, felted soaps, scarves, gloves, etc for the Christmas holidays.  We will be giving tours through the fields at the top of every hour, and if you would like to bring a chair and  knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning gear, reading, etc we will have a spot for you to sit with the herd while you craft and relax.

We look forward to seeing our old friends and meeting our online and new friends.  See you this weekend!

**Please remember we are a working farm so we have dirt, dust, bugs and more! We recommend closed toe shoes if you wish to enter the fields.  We do not have restroom facilities (unless you’re an alpaca).**

Spring and Shearing

Spring has been in full force here for a while but this past week we have been experiencing a Blackberry Winter.  Temps have been much cooler, we’ve had some rain and wind but it has been generally beautiful.

The herd loves the cooler temperatures, and I often find them sunbathing for extended periods during the day.  Nothing like soaking up some Vitamin D on a beautiful day! Continue reading
