National Alpaca Farm Days—A FREE fun family event!
Meet the owners of the farm and their beautiful alpacas at this wonderful two-day, family-friendly event.
Saturday, September 29, 9 am-4 pm
Sunday, September 30, 12-4 pm
Don’t miss this family-friendly event for the opportunity to meet alpacas up close and personal! Dennis and Christy Pace purchased 80 acres of land in 1995 and soon after became interested in Suri alpacas. There are two kinds of alpacas, the Huacaya (pronounced Wuh-kai-ya) and the Suri. Huacaya alpacas are fluffy like teddy bears and Suri alpacas have long shiny locks like very soft, slightly curly hair.
Not only do they have several alpacas, they also have a store with a variety of items for sale including warm and soft alpaca socks, hats, scarves, sweaters and much more. The store is open on Saturdays 9 am-3 pm and Sundays 12-4 pm between Thanksgiving and Christmas or by appointment.
The store will be also open during the event. Saturday hours are 9 am-4 pm and Sunday hours are 12-4 pm. If you are unable to visit us during those times, give us them a call at 608-751-2261.
During National Alpaca Farm Days, you will be able to learn about alpacas, their care, and their fiber. There will be local fiber artists on-site to demonstrate fiber preparation techniques (skirting, picking, carding), spinning fiber into yarn, then knitting, weaving, or felting the fiber and yarn into product.
The event provides an excellent opportunity to shop early for the holidays! Items for sale include clothing, socks, handmade accessories, dryer balls, raw fleece, roving, yarn, and more! There will also be fun activities for kids, and food will be available from Rosemarie’s Kitchen Table.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of Noah Wisconsin—an all-breed animal rescue.
