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!

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.

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. Stop by anytime on Saturday, June 13 between 10 am and 3 pm! Bring a camera and your sense of curiosity and fun. Our alpacas are sure to provide you with entertainment you’ll want to remember after the day is over.

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 http://www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

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.

Welcome Spring with the Sweet Softness of Alpacas at Open Farm Day!

Crowd at OFD 2.14.15Did you know that alpaca yarn is as soft as cashmere? Or that it was once reserved for Incan Royalty?

At our last Open Farm Day, nearly 150 people visited to learn about and spend time with our alpacas and now you can too!

Shake off those winter blues and join us for our next Open Farm Day on Saturday, March 14, 2015 (just a week before Spring arrives!) to find out more about alpacas, the fibers they produce and this fascinating animal’s rich history. Visit us sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to see and touch our special yarns that reflect the colors of the new season: Breath of Spring, in beautiful soft, green tones; Blue Swirl, which captures the hue of new spring buds; or NAAFP Ultra Fine Chorus, melodic in its versatility to be dyed or used for gentle items such as sweaters or baby items.

On Open Farm Day we have guided tours where you will get to meet our alpacas and learn a bit about each one. (They all have different personalities, you know!) You can pet them and learn how their soft fleece is turned into the beautiful yarns, garments and toys that are sold in our Farm Store.

After this long, snowy winter, treat yourself to a day outdoors on the Farm. Enjoy a few hours with our friendly alpacas. Who knows, 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!

When was the last time you had the chance to meet an alpaca? 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!
