IMG_20180414_120245590What better way to let Mom know how much you love her than spending time with her? This Mother’s Day weekend take Mom to Windrush Alpacas’ Open Farm Day, Saturday, May 12 between 10 am and 3 pm! Bet she’ll say it was one of the best Mother’s Day gifts she ever received.

At the farm, you and Mom will get to personally meet the owners of Windrush Alpacas. You will learn about the daily routine of raising these gentle, soft-fleeced animals. You will even have a chance to feed the alpacas, and if they are up to it, feel their newly shorn fleece!

As a bonus, take Mom into our Farm Store where we are sure you will find a ‘little something’ to brighten her day a bit more. Or you might find something for a soon-to-be graduate, or a June bride and groom. Alpaca yarns are hypo-allergenic, as soft as cashmere, and incredibly warm. You can never go wrong when you give a gift made from alpaca yarns.

May is a wonderful time to visit the farm. If you’ve been here before, come again! There is always something interesting to learn and see at Windrush Alpacas. Stop by anytime on Saturday, May 12 between 10 am and 3 pm!  Make sure your phone or camera is charged – our alpacas love to pose for pictures with you!

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.

Beat the Post-Holiday Blues with a Visit Windrush Alpacas

091015 OFD

After a busy holiday season, some of us feel a letdown in January. We’ve got the cure! Visit with our alpacas at Open Farm Day, Saturday, January 13, 10 am to 3 pm.

When you visit with the alpacas, you can’t help but smile. Their gentle demeanor, soft fleece and eagerness to eat grain from your hand will change your mood instantly. Take a tour of the farm to learn why we chose to raise alpacas, how we care for them, and what we do with their fleece in the spring. Our alpacas each have a name and very different personalities. A visit to the farm is a unique experience.

While here, stop in our Farm Store. We sell toasty, warm alpaca products. Warmer than wool and softer than cashmere, we have luxuriously soft alpaca scarves, gloves, mittens, and hats… and everyone’s favorite, socks and slippers.

Admission is free, and refreshments will be served at the Farm Store. If it’s a little too cold, we’ll bring one of the alpacas inside too for you to visit with and feed.

Start your new year in a new way.  And if you’ve been here before, come again! There is always something interesting to learn and see at Windrush Alpacas. Stop by anytime on Saturday, January 13 between 10 am and 3 pm!  Be ready for plenty of picture taking too!

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.
