Slow clothes

Yes, we do have some options for local and sustainably created clothing. We recently had the pleasure of meeting Hannah Regier, a Vermont-based fiber artist. Hannah produces knit hats fashioned from Vermont wool and alpaca fibers, hand-dyed with farmed and foraged plants and knit on a vintage knitting machine. We’re please to have our alpaca fiber included in this excellent example of local, ethical fashion. You can read more about Hannah’s creative process and purchase her hats on her website, … Read More

RIP Hannah’s Julie

posted in: Alpacas, Crias, Herdsires | 3

The first cria born on our farm held a very special place in our hearts.  Hannah’s Julie was born on a very cold and windy January day in 2000. As a result, she, her dam, and the one other alpaca on our small farm spent the better part of the next couple weeks living in our walk-in basement. Other than the weather, Julie was off to a strong and healthy start. We made a very common mistake with our first … Read More

Package Deals

Like many farms, we often package several alpacas together and offer the group at a discounted price.  This is generally to help a client sell the last of their herd or maybe to rehome a few geldings as a group.  But the other package deal we offer as standard practice is what we call a “3-in-1 package” that includes a bred female with a free breeding. We also go one step further and allow that free breeding to be transferred to … Read More
