Annual shearing took place just a week ago. Even in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, farm activities must go on. Shearing is one of the most important events of the year since it is essential for the health of the alpacas and llamas, and the fiber harvest provides the base for many of the products we sell at the shop.
How I Got Into Alpacas: The short answer: I’ve always wanted to be a farmer as far back as I can remember. When I was 5 years out from retiring from the Air Force, I bought a cute little 5-acre farm. After only a couple months on the farm, I was browsing through a magazine and saw alpacas. I ended up visiting a few farms, fell in love, and ended up with a couple of alpacas and a llama late that same year. Over the years I have “collected” more alpacas and some have had babies. Here we are today with about 40 alpacas and llamas on the farm.

1. What is the difference between alpacas and llamas?
2. How often do you shear alpacas?
3. How long do alpacas live?
4. Do alpacas spit?
5. What do alpacas eat?
