Mama – that’s not a Llama! Learn about Alpacas at Open Farm Day

Dolce and CinnamonTreat your mom on her weekend to a visit with the alpacas at Windrush Alpacas!

Our next Open Farm Day is on Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday, May 9, 2015. Visiting the farm on this fun day is a great way to celebrate motherhood and family! Take our tour to meet our mama alpacas. We will introduce you to the alpacas, tell you a bit about their history and lineage, and explain to you how this soft, wooly animal is related to llamas and camels – but is definitely a different breed!

If the tour alone is not gift enough for your mom (because we know she’s pretty darn special), walk with her through our Farm Store where you will find luxurious, affordable gifts made with alpaca yarn. Indulge her in a lightweight scarf or wrap. Or treat her feet to soft-as-a-cloud pair of alpaca socks. If she’s a knitter – she will be in paradise with the selection of yarns!

Go over the top with a really unique gift by signing her up for our Adopt-a-Paca Program! For one year, your mom will have a special alpaca to call her own. She will receive an adoption certificate, a picture of her ‘baby’, periodic letters from her alpaca and more! And she doesn’t have to do a thing for this except to visit the farm when she would like to see her alpaca. Bet no one else will be giving her this kind of gift!

You don’t have to be a mom to come to Windrush Alpacas. Everyone is invited to the Open Farm Day Event! There is always something new to learn and see at the farm. Stop by anytime on Saturday, May 9 between 10 am and 3 pm! It’s a great way to spend a day with family and friends, be outdoors and become informed about this special animal.

It’s always free admission and free parking. We have refreshments to share with you too! Windrush Alpacas farm is located just 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. Watch our Facebook page for updates http://www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

Whisper March 2012Spring may be allergy season – but not at Windrush Alpacas. Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic! There’s no sniffling at our farm!

Come to our next Open Farm Day on Saturday, April 11, 2015 to learn more about the other unique features of alpacas. Not only do they provide some of the softest yarns and fibers you’ll ever touch, alpacas are also very safe and pleasant animals to be around. We’ll take you on a tour, introduce you to our family friendly herd of alpacas, explain the difference between a Proven Dam and Maiden (both females) and tell you why a baby alpaca is called a Cria.  Visit us sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to learn, see and touch the alpacas!

After your pasture tour, step into our Farm store where you will find an incredible selection of alpaca yarn products. Bring home a gift for your spring-time feathered friends – an alpaca fiber bird-nesting ball – or pick up a soft toy for your favorite child.

Sign up for our Adopt-a-Paca Program – it’s become quite popular! You can sponsor a real, live alpaca for one full year. You’ll receive a glossy photo and other goodies. Pick out your paca while you’re on the tour!

Welcome Spring with the Sweet Softness of Alpacas at Open Farm Day!

Crowd at OFD 2.14.15Did you know that alpaca yarn is as soft as cashmere? Or that it was once reserved for Incan Royalty?

At our last Open Farm Day, nearly 150 people visited to learn about and spend time with our alpacas and now you can too!

Shake off those winter blues and join us for our next Open Farm Day on Saturday, March 14, 2015 (just a week before Spring arrives!) to find out more about alpacas, the fibers they produce and this fascinating animal’s rich history. Visit us sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to see and touch our special yarns that reflect the colors of the new season: Breath of Spring, in beautiful soft, green tones; Blue Swirl, which captures the hue of new spring buds; or NAAFP Ultra Fine Chorus, melodic in its versatility to be dyed or used for gentle items such as sweaters or baby items.

On Open Farm Day we have guided tours where you will get to meet our alpacas and learn a bit about each one. (They all have different personalities, you know!) You can pet them and learn how their soft fleece is turned into the beautiful yarns, garments and toys that are sold in our Farm Store.

After this long, snowy winter, treat yourself to a day outdoors on the Farm. Enjoy a few hours with our friendly alpacas. Who knows, you might even Adopt-a-Paca while you are there! No need to take it home, we’ll care for it and you can visit him or her whenever you’d like!

When was the last time you had the chance to meet an alpaca? Bring your family, your friends, your co-workers and anyone who needs to get outside in the sunshine and join us for this informative and fun day!

We have ample free parking, it’s free admission for everyone, and we even offer hot and cold refreshments to our visitors. Windrush Alpacas farm is located us 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. Watch our Facebook page for updates www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

Spend Valentine’s Day at Windrush Alpacas and receive a special kiss from a real, live alpaca!

Yes, it’s true! Our next Open Farm Day will be on Valentine’s Day, Saturday, February 14, 2015. Come out and visit us sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and enjoy a very special Valentine’s Day indeed! Bring your sweethearts – spouses, dates, children, parents, cousins – and you’ll have a delightful experience that will live on in your memories forever.

The extraordinary amount of snow that we have been getting hopefully is encouraging the alpacas to grow longer fleeces and will help the fleeces to feel a little softer with the added humidity in the air.  We’ll let you pet an alpaca and feel their lovely “fur” and then demonstrate how we turn it into the super warm garments we sell in our Farm Store. We’re fascinated by the process and we know you will be, too.

If the weather is favorable, we’ll take you on a tour of our working alpaca farm. If not, we’ll bring our alpaca to you right inside our toasty warm and dry Farm Store. Where else can you visit with a paca indoors? No where!

We love our alpacas… and want you to love them, too!

We have ample free parking, it’s free admission for everyone, and we even offer hot refreshments to our visitors. Windrush Alpacas farm is located us 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. Watch our Facebook page for updates http://www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

Let it Snow Farm Day Event!

Filed under: Adopt A Paca, Open Farm Day — Tags: , , , — alpacalady @ 11:05 am

Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 12.51.22 PMThe weather outside is frightful… but alpaca socks are so delightful! So join us on Saturday, January 10, 2015 from 10:00-3:00 for our monthly Open Farm Day Event and Farm Store Shopping Experience! Get yourself a pair of paca socks and then take a tour of our working alpaca farm, participate in educational demonstrations and meet our friendly alpacas… all while staying toasty warm!

Did you know that alpaca fiber is warmer than wool yet lighter in weight? It’s also naturally lanolin free and does not feel prickly against your skin. It has a softness that’s comparable to cashmere, too. Plus, people who are sensitive to wool can usually wear alpaca! What’s not to love!?

While you’re here you’ll learn first-hand about alpacas, how they live, and how we harvest their lovely fleece to use in products to keep people warm. Of course we welcome you to browse our Farm Store and the multitude of other merchandise we offer — rugs, toys, household items, and accessories — and sip on some warm beverages.

If it happens to be too chilly or windy, we will also bring one of our star alpacas into the Farm Store to visit folks so you won’t miss out on any fun!

As usual, we offer free admission, free parking and free (hot) refreshments. Come join us 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. We have easy access and ample parking to accommodate even large groups. See you soon!

Stay in touch with us on our Facebook page, through our newsletter, or better yet you can Adopt-a-Paca and get special treatment for a whole year!

For more information, call us at 575-683-5177 or visit our website at www.windrushalpacas.com.
