Shearing Day—-

Alpaca Fleece Harvest Day

3rd Sunday in May   ~   2024 May 19th

All year long we offer, Alpaca fleece, fiber arts classes and a gift shop fill with products and apparel made with alpaca fiber.

Where does all that alpaca fiber come from?

The answer is: it comes from our alpacas, grown right here on the ranch.

Shearing day is harvest day at the alpaca ranch.  All the alpacas get their hair cut. We collect their fleece to supply the shop.

You are invited to watch or get your hands on the fun.

We have a viewing area where you can watch the shearer, Nathan Good, and helpers take the alpaca fleece from the alpaca.  Remember to visit the alpaca gift shop to take home a little alpaca of your own.
