Shearing Day 2017. Although the sky threatened rain most of the day, we managed to keep our herd dry and have a successful Shearing Day on Monday, April 24. Matt Best of Best Shearing expertly and efficiently removed the fleece from our 15 alpacas and two llamas in less than 2 1/2 hours (that's between 8 & 9 minutes per animal!) providing us with about 104 lbs of fiber to be taken to the mill and turned into yarn. If you or someone you know loves to knit, stop by the farm to see, and more importantly, feel our alpaca yarn. And after you choose your yarn we'll take you out to the barn to meet the animal who produced it!
