UPCOMING EVENTS AT LITTLE LOST CREEK

Shearing TIme

On Sunday, May 3rd at 4 p.m, we will be shearing our two Angora goats, Pete and Pippin. This is always an instructive event as our shearer Hoyt Emmons enjoys answering questions and educating the audience about what he is doing.

On Tuesday, May 5, it’s the alpacas’ turn to get their haircuts. We don’t have a specific time as yet but our shearer said it would be late afternoon/early evening. If you’d like to come watch, or even help out, we’d love to have you. Please call ahead  Tuesday afternoon and we’ll let you know when to come.

Philly Farm and Food Fest

We would like to thank our four 4-H members—Katy, Ava, Jessica Joy, and Kayla—and their families who came to the Fest to support us. We had a very successful day educating the “city folk” about alpacas and couldn’t have done it without their help.

    2015 marks the third year of Art Camp at Little Lost Creek, and I am thrilled to share that campers from last year report having had a blast! The groups were small, as planned, and many of the kids knew each other, making for a comfortable beginning of the week. Besides the very fun art work that was created, everyone enjoyed drawing and herding the alpacas, and playing with Pete and Pippen the goats, and of course, Chester-the-dog.

Come join in the fun of a small art camp with a lot of one-on-one attention to your work. We will explore the farm, the animals, the ecology of the woods, and much more.

Afternoons or Evenings at the Mad Felters!

Come and enjoy a relaxed workshop on wet or dry felting (or both) and bring home something you can delight in having made.

Build your own felting party – we can work out days and times that work for you and your friends. I’ll provide all of the materials, instruction, plus goodies to eat and drink. Most parties run 2- 2 ½ hours. Just come ready for fun!

$20 per partier
