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.

Hint O’Spring at Windrush Alpacas

Hint O’Spring at Windrush Alpacas!

 Rascal Standing

Spring is just around the corner, and our alpacas are certainly excited about the warmer temps and hints of grass that will begin to sprout up in the next few weeks. How about you? Is it time to come outdoors and spend some time with the alpacas?

Shake off those winter blues and join us for our next Open Farm Day on Saturday, March 12, 2016 (just a week before Spring arrives!) to learn about alpacas, see their full winter coats (shearing will take place in April and May) and take a tour of our farm. Visit us anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. After your tour, you can stop in our Farm Store to see and touch our special yarns milled with Windrush Alpaca fibers. Reflecting the colors of the new season our yarns even have spring names! Breath of Spring will wow you with a hint of soft, green tones; Blue Swirl will remind you of the hue of the beautiful spring sky; and Pink Whisper reflects the colors of fresh new buds on spring plants.

On an Open Farm Day tour you will get to personally meet our owners and many of our alpacas. You will learn a bit about each one. (They all have different personalities, you know!) We will explain how we care for them and how their soft fleece is turned into the beautiful yarns, garments and toys that are sold in our Farm Store.

After spending time with our friendly animals, you might even Adopt-a-Paca while you are there! No need to take it home, we’ll care for it and you can visit him or her whenever you’d like! We’ll tell you all about our program when you visit!

Bring your family, your friends, your co-workers and anyone who needs to get outside in the sunshine and join us for this informative and fun day! And don’t forget your camera! Our alpacas love to take selfies with you!

We have ample free parking, it’s free admission for everyone, and we even offer hot and 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.
