The Holiday Season is Extra Special at Windrush Alpacas

 Ashling and Regent with Windrush Sign

The holiday season is about spending time with those you love! And we know you LOVE Windrush Alpacas! And our alpacas love you too!

Join us for our very special December Open Farm Day on Saturday, December 10. Our alpaca herd will be looking for you from 10 am to 3 pm in hopes of making holiday memories with you.

While you are visiting, you can tour our working alpaca farm, learn why we raise alpacas and what we do with the fleece that we shear off our alpacas each spring. You can interact with and feed the alpacas – even learn their names! Each one is very special to us!

We make holiday shopping easy too! Our Farm Store is stocked with gifts for everyone on your list. Alpaca fleece gloves and hats, scarves and shawls, unique toys for kids and even some for your dogs and cats! Just think of how surprised your friends and relatives will be when they open a soft and warm gift made from alpaca fiber.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served at the Farm Store.

 

By the way, the Farm Store will also be open December 3 & 17, in case you can’t make it to Open Farm Day. Hours are 10-3.

 

Another unique gift idea is to enroll your friends in our Adopt-A-Paca© program. Your gift recipient can have a very special alpaca to visit if they visit the farm! But even if they can’t, they will get an official certificate, a picture of their alpaca and occasional letters from them too! You can choose which alpaca to adopt for them. And why not adopt one for yourself as well?

Create special holiday memories by attending Open Farm Day.  There is always something new to learn and see at the farm, so if you’ve been here before, please come again! Stop by anytime on Saturday, December 10 between 10 am and 3 pm!  Be ready for plenty of picture taking too!

It’s always free admission and free parking. Windrush Alpacas farm is located just 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. Watch our Facebook page for updates www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

Visit the Alpacas after their Makeover!

IMG_20160409_141656799Humans aren’t the only ones who like to strut new styles in Spring! Our Alpaca herd gets their own ‘makeovers’ in Spring when we shear their winter coats!

Come to our next Open Farm Day on Saturday, May 14 to see our newly shorn alpacas, tour the farm and learn how we use the soft fleece and fibers from the alpacas.  Visit us sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to learn about, see and touch the alpacas!

After your pasture tour, step into our Farm store where you will find an incredible selection of alpaca yarn products. Although OFD is after Mother’s Day, ask mom to join you as we are sure you will find a ‘little something’ to brighten your mom’s day, or maybe a soon-to-be graduate, or a blushing June bride. 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.

Or, we can provide a very unique gift! While you are visiting, sign up for our Adopt-a-Paca! Program. Choose which alpaca you would like to sponsor – or give as a gift! In addition to receiving a glossy photo of your special alpaca, you will also receive a certificate of sponsorship of your very own alpaca.

If you have been here before – we welcome you back! Every Open Farm Day provides for a different experience.  Bring your Mom, a friend, your spouse, even your cousins and grandma! There is something for everyone at Windrush Alpaca Open Farm Day

We have ample free parking, it’s free admission for everyone, and we even offer cold refreshments to our visitors. Windrush Alpacas farm is located us 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. Watch our Facebook page for updates http://www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

Let it Snow Farm Day Event!

Filed under: Adopt A Paca, Open Farm Day — Tags: , , , — alpacalady @ 11:05 am

Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 12.51.22 PMThe weather outside is frightful… but alpaca socks are so delightful! So join us on Saturday, January 10, 2015 from 10:00-3:00 for our monthly Open Farm Day Event and Farm Store Shopping Experience! Get yourself a pair of paca socks and then take a tour of our working alpaca farm, participate in educational demonstrations and meet our friendly alpacas… all while staying toasty warm!

Did you know that alpaca fiber is warmer than wool yet lighter in weight? It’s also naturally lanolin free and does not feel prickly against your skin. It has a softness that’s comparable to cashmere, too. Plus, people who are sensitive to wool can usually wear alpaca! What’s not to love!?

While you’re here you’ll learn first-hand about alpacas, how they live, and how we harvest their lovely fleece to use in products to keep people warm. Of course we welcome you to browse our Farm Store and the multitude of other merchandise we offer — rugs, toys, household items, and accessories — and sip on some warm beverages.

If it happens to be too chilly or windy, we will also bring one of our star alpacas into the Farm Store to visit folks so you won’t miss out on any fun!

As usual, we offer free admission, free parking and free (hot) refreshments. Come join us 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. We have easy access and ample parking to accommodate even large groups. See you soon!

Stay in touch with us on our Facebook page, through our newsletter, or better yet you can Adopt-a-Paca and get special treatment for a whole year!

There’s nothing cuter than an alpaca in full fleece!

PrideWindrush Alpacas are wearing a year’s worth of fluffy fleece…but not for long! This Open Farm Day Event will be your last chance to see them in their winter coats before they get sheared for the warm months of summer!

Learn why alpaca fleece is super soft, warmer than wool and highly sought after. We’ll explain the shearing procedure and the process the raw fibers go through to become a usable product to be made into luxurious items for human (and pet) comfort. 

We’ll also take you on a guided pasture tour and perform some demonstrations to educate you on the wonderful world of alpaca farming.  Then you can browse our Farm Store collection of alpaca products–some items made from our very own alpacas–including alpaca fiber bird-nesting balls which are great for spring birds! And if you’re a crafter, we also offer yarns, roving, batting and needle felting kits.
