A Taste of Life at Windrush Alpacas

April 1, 2013

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! 

On Saturday, April 13, 2013 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. will be the Windrush Alpacas Open Farm Day Event and Farm Store Shopping Experience. Come out to our farm — bring your kids and bring your parents — and spend a couple of hours meeting our friendly alpaca!

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.

We always offer free admission, free parking and free refreshments.
