Congratulations to Drs. Joel & LuAnne Yeager of Newmanstown, PA on their purchase of Sugar Hollow's Born to Run, Deacon Blues, and Abracadabra! They are off to a good start on their alpaca adventure with these three fabulously fleeced young males. Runner earned an Advanced Fleece award at the 2020 PAOBA fleece show with a score of 83. Deacon and Abby also show excellent fineness, consistency, staple length, and crimp. All vital characteristics to produce wonderful yarn!
Here is a list of the events we will be hosting or attending this fall. Other events may be added so check back often!
National Alpaca Farm Days - Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10:30 to 4:00 & Sunday, Sept. 26 from 1:30 to 4:00. This is the weekend that alpaca farms all across the United States open their doors to the public. Stop by our farm to visit the alpacas, take a tour of the farm, learn about the care and handling of these amazing animals, and also the process for turning their fleece into yarn and eventually into the soft and warm apparel that you've come to know and love. Then finish off your visit in our farm store and get a jump start on that Holiday shopping!
Waynesboro Market Day - Saturday, Oct. 2 from 9:00 to 4:00. Held on Main Street in downtown Waynesboro this annual event features dozens of vendors along with lots of food and activities. We will have alpacas with us so be sure to stop by and say hello! For more information click here.

Holiday Farm Store Hours. You know what we always say - "Give us a call, if we're home, we're open!" We realize however that in the rush of the Holidays it's not always convenient to have to stop and find our number to call first. Therefore, we will have the following set Farm Store hours, no calling ahead required:
Saturday, December 4 from 11 AM to 4 PM
Saturday, December 11 from 10:30 AM to 4 PM - Holiday Open Farm (see above)
Sunday, December 12 from 1:30 PM to 4 PM
If you can't make it during our holiday hours you can still call us at other times to see if we're home. But do please call first - it's a busy time for us, too!
