Sorry, we’re not open for visitors.

We’re very sorry to disappoint the kids and alpaca loving adults but we’re NOT OPEN any longer for visitors.  The herd is for sale and we have just 4 alpacas who still need to find new pastures. If you are interested please contact us about purchasing alpacas.  We’d love to share our experience, expertise and love of all things alpaca.

Alpacas on vacation.

For the next few weeks we are not able to be open for farm visits as we attend to family needs and participate in alpaca 4H activities at the Whidbey Island Fair.  However, if you’re yearning for alpaca yarn or a pair of alpaca socks or some of our other alpaca products please contact us by email and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.

We encourage you to visit the Whidbey Island Fair August 6-9 in Langley, WA. It has all the funloadingBackDoor-blog of a rural county fair. . . . animals, rides and food. The 4H alpaca club will be having their competitions on Friday in the arena by the alpaca barn. Sit in the grandstand and watch the 4H alpaca handlers put their animals through their paces. On Sunday you can watch the egg and spoon races and timed obstacles courses. It’s a lot of fun for everyone. See you at the Fair.

Please watch the website for updates on when the farm will be open for visits again.

Girls day out.

blythe2It was a busy and beautiful weekend on the farm with visitors to the island coming to the farm to meet the alpacas. And what a delightful surprise when a long time friend of mine and her daughter dropped by for their first visit to the farm. Here’s  her daughter, Blythe, schmooozing with Freya and Electra in the girls’ pasture.

AsaSupercloseUP_blogWe captured a couple of other great pictures of the fluffy characters on the farm that day. How could you not love this face! Asa has lovely mahogany fleece and killer eyelashes.

Spring is a great time to visit the alpacas. They still have all their fluffy fleece. We’re heading towards shearing day so don’t wait too long to plan your visit to see them in their full fleecey splendor.

Oh, and we have just received from the mill more skeins of our true black, bay black and white 100% alpaca yarn — all from our own herd. Plus, for the weavers and fiber artists we have white, beige, rose gray and dark mahogany brown rug yarn spun on a cotton core. It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to get the loom warped up again for more rugs.
