Special Gift Shop Hours  9 AM - 4 PM 

Come watch the harvest and shop the alpaca Gift Shop. 

 
Nathan Good will be returning to  shear the alpacas. 
Shearing will start at 7:30am
 
 
 
This year we will continue to sort the alpaca fibers
We are looking for helpers to skirt the fibers once they are shorn from the alpaca. 
Skirting is where the fibers are sorted into like fibers and the unwanted waste is removed. 
It's not hard, dirty, but not hard and no experience is necessary. We will show you how to sort the alpaca fiber. 
Please let Julie know if you are interested.
