In addition to the flurry of personal events, we have been learning so much about our alpacas, alpaca fiber, pasture management and new approaches to animal health issues. Jeanne and daughter, Natalie, have become FAMACHA certified through the certification course taught by Susan Beal, DVM sponsored by Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture (PASA). Please see the information page about this exciting health assessment.
A large part of animal health and economical farm management is about pasture management. We are beginning new methods of rotational grazing and weed control and look forward to seeing the fruits of these efforts in the next year.
This year, we look forward to seeing you at our farm store. We have many wonderful alpaca products, including hats. gloves, clothing, rugs, hides and toys. Come and see us at our Open House on Saturday and Sunday December 20 & 21 from 12pm to 5pm. We will also have extended hours on Monday, December 22 and Tuesday, December 23 from 4pm to 7pm. We will be available at the store on Christmas Eve from 12pm to 3pm for those last minute shoppers as well. Hope to see you here! font>
