Alpaca Farm

Open house at the Alpaca Farm!

Alpacas are one of the oldest domesticated animal

They are sheared once a year in the spring.

five week old baby




Getting ready to spit

This farm has 17 alpacas. Photos are of the females. The males
including Geronimo, are kept separate.

The white fiber can be dyed, so it is the most versatile.
