A Taste of Life at Windrush Alpacas

It’s That Time of the Year Again

Time for National Alpaca Farm Days!  This year the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association has scheduled National Alpaca Farm Days for September 25 and 26, 2009 which is great except that those are also the dates of the alpaca show at the New Mexico State Fair.

This year Ric is the show superintendent for the New Mexico State Fair and so it will be difficult for us to hold our National Alpaca Farm Days Open Day when Ric, at least, will be away at the State Fair (I am still trying to figure out if I too can attend the State Fair even if only for a day, that will depend on us finding a reliable farm sitter)

The State Fair was not willing to reschedule the dates of the alpaca show, so we have decided to hold our National Alpaca Farm Days celebration a little early.  On September 12, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. we will hold an Open Farm Day in celebration of National Alpaca Farm Days.  During the Open Farm Day we will conduct pasture tours, give brief educational presentations, have some fiber arts demonstrations and we will also have the farm store open for business.  With Christmas rapidly approaching our Open Farm Day will be a great opportunity for people to do some early Christmas shopping.  Of course Willow’s new cria will be a favorite I am sure and hopefully by then Bjorn will have had her cria too (she’s due today!).  Visitors to the farm always like to see the new crias.

For now we are busy working on marketing the event to the local community and hope that we will have a good turnout.

If you are not in the Clovis area and would like to attend a National Alpaca Farm Day event you can go to the National Alpaca Farm Day website where you can locate participating farms in your area.  If you are in the Clovis area we hope to see you at our early National Alpaca Farm Day celebration on September 12.
