The days are getting shorter and cooler weather will soon be upon us! Following is a list of events we will be hosting or attending this fall. Events may be updated and others added so check back often!
National Alpaca Farm Days - Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10:30 to 4:00 & Sunday, Sept. 24 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 to get a jump on that Holiday shopping!
Waynesboro Market Day - Saturday, Oct. 7 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.
2nd Annual Hagerstown Fiber Fest - Saturday, Oct. 7 from 9:00 to 4:00. Unfortunately the date for this event conflicts with Waynesboro Market Day so we will be unable to attend.
