2019 Open Farm Events:

 

 National Alpaca Farm Days:  Saturday 9/28 - Sunday 9/29 

 

We can’t wait to see everyone for National Alpaca Farm Days!

Just a few more details about the event:

There is no charge for this event. We will be open from 11am - 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Farm tours will occur hourly, beginning at 11:30 with the last tour starting at 3:30. Please bring appropriate footwear for the weather conditions if you plan to take the tour or meet the alpacas. Shoe covers will also be available for visitors coming from other farms. All ages are welcome, but we do respectfully request that 4 legged family members remain at home.

Access to animal enclosures will only be permitted while accompanied by farm staff during the tour. This allows us to keep our animals stress free during the tours and prevents accidental escapes from improperly closed gates. Visitors are welcome to take a self guided tour to take photos, interact with the alpacas from outside their pens at any time. We will also be happy to set up private farm visits for anyone that would like to come back to get more information after the event.

Activities: meet and greet the alpacas, learn about alpacas and their fiber, alpaca selfies (we have an instant camera available for anyone without a phone or camera) browse or shop the farm store, learn how to needle felt and take home a felted book mark, air freshener or bracelet, wet felt a bar of soap, kumihimo braid an alpaca friendship bracelet, make your own alpaca (craft). Light refreshments will also be provided. We will also have a Facebook photo contest so don’t forget your camera! Winning photo will earn a free pair of alpaca socks or a gift card.

If you have any questions prior to the event, please let us know!

 

 

 

 

ShaDo Alpacas is our home as well as a working farm. If you are interested in learning more about alpacas to enter the business, or if you want to look at our animals to add to your existing herd, fill out our farm visit request form to schedule a time to visit our ranch:

The request form can also be used to schedule a visit to our farm store to purchase finished alpaca goods or fiber.  Requests for visits of this type can generally be accommodated on weekends.  We are not available for weekday visits at this time.

Visitors interested in just seeing alpacas or looking for a fun activity are welcome to join us on our scheduled open barn days. We generally have at least two open farm weekends a year, along with open farm days periodically as our schedule allows.  These events will be posted on our Upcoming Events page http://www.shadoalpacas.com/pages/1588/shado-alpacas-news-and-events and on Facebook https://m.facebook.com/shadoalpacas and will include farm tours and activities for our visitors.



For additional information, please contact us via email info@shadoalpacas.com or message us on Facebook @shadoalpacas.  Phone calls are not preferred, as cell coverage is spotty and we aren’t usually inside to take calls during the day.
