Summer 2017

Quilt Raffle

Little Lost Creek is sponsoring a quilt raffle to raise funds for our alpaca club to attend agility competitions. Each of our club members was given a 10″ inch square of fabric and asked to design a farm animal or farm scene and then needle felt it onto the fabric. One of our mothers graciously volunteered to stitch them all together. The result, as you can see below, is a unique creation. Needless to say, we were very impressed with the hard work everyone put into the project.

Tickets for the raffle are $3 apiece or 4 for $10.

The winner will be drawn at our farm on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 3 p.m, following an agility demonstration our kids will be presenting.

We will be selling tickets at the farm and other events we will be attending, like the Lansdale and Perkasie farmers markets.

Agility Invitational

On Saturday, June 17, we held our Seventh Annual Agility Invitational at the 4-H center. Twenty-nine  kids from 5 different 4-H clubs from Pa. and N.J. participated in three age groups.

Our Alpacateers performed well. Rookie Kylee placed an amazing first in the 12-14 agility class, while veteran Sarah took the 15-18 showmanship class and third in agility. Kayla won the 8-11 showmanship class and placed second in the 8-11 agility. Other placewinners in the 8-11 category included Vanessa (5th showmanship, 6th agility), Leah (fifth agility, eighth showmanship), Weston (eighth agility, fourth showmanship). In the 12-14 class, Jonathan placed third in agility and fifth in showmanship, while Annabelle was sixth in agility and ninth in showmanship. Newcomer Maggie was fifth in agility and eighth in showmanship in the 15-18 age group.

• Meet our newest alpaca. King Arthur arrived at the farm on Sunday, June 4. We purchased him from Rocky Run Farm in Malvern as a fiber animal and as another alpaca we could use for agility competitions.

He’s a real cutey. He was born on Oct. 4, 2016. We have put him in with the females because he is still small and won’t get beaten up by the “big guys.” He and Channing are striking up a friendship as they are closest in age. We think he will be a great addition to the farm with his pleasant disposition and “crimpy” fiber.

Please stop by and say hello to him.

Arthur is our newest addition to the farm.

 

 

Adopt-an-Alpaca (or a goat or a sheep)

Visitors to our farm have often remarked that they would love to own their own alpacas, but for one reason or another were unable to.

As a response to those people who love the animals but can’t own their own, we are offering an adoption program.

You can choose which alpaca you would like to adopt and for a fee of $20 you will receive the following:

  1. Updates on your alpaca’s health, weight and activities (such as shows it may enter or markets it might visit).
  2. An 8×10 photo of you and your alpaca.
  3. A copy of your alpaca’s National ARI registry certificate.
  4. An alpaca finger puppet.
  5. Visitation rights. Give us a call when you would like to come out and see your alpaca. You can even take him or her for a walk.
  6. Help in the shearing of your alpaca and receive a sample of its his or her fiber.

The adoption program is valid for one year.

To choose your animal, you can look at them on our website. Just click Our Girls and Our Boys to see all of the alpacas or come to the farm and choose one in person. If you are interested, please give us a call, click on the red link below, fill out the application and send it to us.
