Annual Shearing: watch the process and maybe even lend a hand. There is lots to do. Get to feel the incredibly soft fiber as it comes off the animal. This year's shearing will take place on Saturday, May 5th beginning at approximately 12:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to watch the process and lend a hand if so desired. Be sure to bring your camera for pictures with the alpacas.

We open our shearing to the public each year, weather permitting. Refreshments are served and the Fiber Hut will be open for shopping. Come learn about these wonderful animals, watch the shearing, feed the alpacas and help out if you would like - there is always plenty to do. We look forward to your visit.
