Shearing Day


One of the most important (and fun!) days on our farm.......

On the first Saturday of May, we are blessed to have so many of our friends and family come to join us for shearing!  It's Alpaca Spa Day!  They all get their heavy winter coats removed, a new hair-do, their nails and teeth done and any needed vaccinations.   We sort, clean and grade all of their fibre.  We work under the big yellow circus tent rain or shine! We couldn't do it all in one day without all the help and they keep coming back for the food and company!!  Thanks to all! (you know who you are!!)
