It has been a long, hot summer but now that the days are getting slightly cooler, the alpacas want to welcome you back! They have been hanging out under the shade trees waiting for company to stop by.

Visit with all of our alpacas at Open Farm Day, Saturday, September 12, 2015. We love to have visitors on our working farm

and to show off the alpacas. We’ll give you a tour, answer your questions, and show you what a typical day on the farm is all about.

There is always fun on the farm, so be sure to bring your family and friends to Open Farm Day! We have activities and discussions of interest for all ages.

While you are visiting, step into our newly stocked Farm Store to see the many products created from alpaca fleece. Cuddle with a hand-crocheted Pac-a-Bear, made from the fibers of our very own alpacas.  Or stock up on some cozy warm socks for the winter months ahead. There is also a selection of yarns for you to purchase so you can create your very own alpaca fashions.

Do you want to have an alpaca, but don’t own a farm? Sign up for our Adopt-a-Paca Program! For one year, you will have a very special alpaca to call your own. Upon adoption you will receive an official certificate and a picture of your alpaca. You will even receive periodic letters from your alpaca. And you can visit your alpaca whenever the farm is open.

There is always something new to learn and see at the farm, so if you’ve been here before, please come again  – and bring a friend.! Stop by anytime on Saturday, September 12 between 10 am and 3 pm!  We’ll even serve light refreshments. Bring a camera and your sense of curiosity and fun. Our alpacas are sure to provide you with entertainment you’ll want to remember long after the day is over.

Alpacas are Showing some Skin at Windrush Farms!

Shorn pacaCome to see the alpacas strut their stuff! After shearing this spring, our entire herd is ready to show off some skin!

Visit with all of our alpacas at Open Farm Day, Saturday, June 13, 2015. Tour the farm to meet with the freshly shorn alpacas. They can’t wait for you to see their summer coats. They were even filmed by PBS during their shearing! These alpacas are real stars!

While on tour you’ll learn why they need to be shorn each year, how their fleece is used and the importance for the farmers to use shearing time to evaluate each alpaca’s health. You’ll likely hear tales of spitting and retaliation from some of the alpacas who would prefer to keep their winter coats and not have their yearly ‘spa’ day.

After meeting with the celebrity alpacas, enter our Farm Store to see the many products created from their fleece. Feel the softness of our Dramatic Nuno Felted Alpaca/Silk scarf – made right here at our farm! Or cuddle with a hand-crocheted Pac-a-Bear, made from the fibers of our very own alpacas. There is also a selection of yarns for you to purchase so you can create your very own alpaca fashions.

For those who wish they could take home one of these gentle, soft animals, we’ve got the next best thing! Sign up for our Adopt-a-Paca Program! For one year, you will have a very special alpaca to call your own. Upon adoption you will receive an official certificate and a picture of your alpaca. You will even receive periodic letters from your alpaca. And you can visit your alpaca whenever the farm is open.

Open Farm Day is for everyone! Tell your neighbors and friends. Make it an adventurous day for all! We even provide light refreshments. There is always something new to learn and see at the farm. Stop by anytime on Saturday, June 13 between 10 am and 3 pm! Bring a camera and your sense of curiosity and fun.

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.

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!
