As the weather warms our alpacas become anxious to get back out on pasture. Suddenly the hay doesn’t look as good as it did in January and February. In order to make this happen, however, we needed to get out and fertilize, check and mend fences and top-seed the pastures. As of this date all of that has been done and our alpacas are out happily grazing on fresh spring grass.
Our shearing is also done for this year. We sheared early, on April 12th, because of some scheduling issues we had. We did, however, hold off on Electra and Excalibur as we took them to the PAOBA show in York this past weekend. We showed both of them in the yearling class and Electra received a 4th place ribbon and Excalibur a 6th place ribbon.
Based on the interest expressed by many of our customers we have decided to open our farm store for more hours. We will now be open for limited hours during the week days, and many weekends. Please call to check on when we will be open as we don’t want you to waste a trip.
