Fall in love with one of our alpacas at Open Farm Day, October 10, 2015. The alpacas love attention and we enjoy showing off the alpacas on our farm. We’ll give you a tour, answer your questions, and let you get close and personal with Inca, Contessa, Dream or any of our other beautiful alpacas.

You can even adopt one of them! You can have a very special alpaca to visit whenever the farm is open. You’ll get an official certificate, a picture of your alpaca and occasional letters from them too! Learn more about our Adopt-a-Paca program when you visit.

A visit to Windrush Alpaca is not complete without stopping in at our Farm Store. It’s time to start stocking up on super warm alpaca socks and slippers, hats and gloves, scarves and shawls. We even have cozy pet beds for your dogs and toys for your cats! Make sure you stop by!

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.
