Feature Friday #7

Happy Friday,everyone!  Hopefully our US friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving, while our international friends are enjoying a peaceful Friday.

We are hosting our Annual Open Barn/Holiday Shop this entire weekend, so we’ve been out giving tours and hosting shoppers in the farm store.  While I was in the farm store I noticed one of our family’s favorite products, but until today  I never thought to showcase them because they aren’t made from alpaca. They were just so pretty with the Christmas lights reflecting in them and up against the pine walls of the store.

 

Our hand etched glassware features alpacas. We offer wine glasses in clear, and colored glass; beer steins ( with a pair of socks included for a ready made gift !) ; candle holders; and lighted glass bricks.  All are handmade right here on the farm.  Our selection is constantly changing and evolving and we are happy to do custom orders.  If you would like to purchase any of our glassware, please contact us via email for current availability and pricing, or stop by the farmstore.

Happy Friday y’all 💚

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).**

The Good Shepherdess

Hello, friends!  We welcome you to our blog!  This is a new adventure for us, so I’m sure there will be some bumps in the road.  Bear with us, and together we can work it out.

In the meantime, let us know what you would like to see on the blog.  Do you want to know more about alpacas in general?  We can do that!  What do you do with them?  We can do that, too!  Learn about our herd?  Got it covered.  Want to schedule a time to visit with the crew? Done!

We want you to feel like the blog is an interactive place where you can feel free to comment and add suggestions.  A quick preview into some of the topics we will be covering soon:  What’s an Alpaca?, Alpaca 101, Fiber & Fleece.

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with us!  We truly appreciate it!  If you found something you liked, please pass our site along and give us a like or two on social media!
