We love to open our barn to the public. That’s why we have two major ‘Open Barn’ events each year. The first one is in May, the weekend before shearing. This usually occurs Mother’s Day weekend. What a great treat to bring mom out to the farm, meet and learn about the alpacas and pick out an alpaca for mom to take home! Seriously, we sell our fiber boys to hand spinners or to family’s as pets. On a different scale for mom, we stock a fiber arts and yarn store full of things for mom made from her favorite alpaca’s fiber. We sell fiber straight from the animal, washed and carded into rovings and slivers, spun into a variety of weights of yarn as well as a range of finished products from felted placemats and table runners to knit sweaters, socks, hats and scarves.
Our second annual 'Open Barn' event is held the last weekend of September to celebrate National Alpaca Farm Day. In addition to having our fiber arts & yarn store open, you’ll be able to feed the alpacas treats, learn the differences between the suri and huacaya breeds and feel the difference in fiber softness between month-old cria and adult fiber. You can also make it a great learning experience for kids! Our learning center makes a great way for those curious about alpacas to learn more about their care and feeding and whether an alpaca breeding business would fit your lifestyle, income and entrepreneurial situation.

With nearly two dozen babies (called cria) due during the spring 2015 there will be plenty of cuteness and excitement on display as babies chase and romp across the pasture. Enjoy watching them nurse, learn about their husbandry and shop in our exclusively alpaca shoppe and fiber studio.
