Bunnies may be the talk of the season, but alpacas – well –  they are in season all year long! Take a break from the ordinary and visit with our lovable herd. Their fleece is long and fluffy now, but not for long. See the alpacas before we shear their winter coats!

Come on out to Open Farm Day, Saturday, April 8 between 10 am and 3 pm.

While you are here, you will get to personally meet our owners, hear about the daily routine of raising these beautiful animals and learn the names of our soft-fleeced friends. They are safe to be around and can be very personable! 

Our Farm Store will be open for you to enjoy refreshments and browse the alpaca products we have for sale. Perhaps you’ll find a special pair of socks or a hat to place in someone’s Easter basket.

April 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, April 8 between 10 am and 3 pm!  Make sure your phone or camera is charged – our alpacas love to pose for pictures with you!

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.

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.

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.
