PLEASE NOTE: While we are available most times for tours and shopping, please call ahead to make sure someone will be here. Try either Alex at 484-431-5587 or Sandy at 484-431-9305.
Also: Many GPS’s do not recognize our zip code. If that occurs, use Harleysville 19438. That should get you here.
NOTE: Our events page has recently been updated. Check it out to see what we are doing this year.
Little Lost Creek has been in the news a lot lately. MONTCO Homes, Gardens and Lifestyle featured us in its Spring issue. It was a very extensive article accompanied by many photos of our farm and work. It is a great magazine for learning all about Montgomery County. Even if you don’t live there, you can discover unique places to visit.
For the Philly Farm and Food Festival, two of our alpacas were front and center on the cover of Philly Weekly.
And finally, Little Lost Creek has gone solar. Solar City erected 44 solar panels on our barn and house, which they estimate will cover 96% of our electric bill. It seems like a great company to work with, and we are very pleased to do our part for global warming.
Spring is finally here and we are getting ready for some neat events.
May 3rd is alpaca shearing day at the farm. It is open to anyone who would like to attend and help out with the shearing. For those who haven’t seen it or participated, it is an interesting experience. We don’t have a time yet, but the shearer should arrive sometime late afternoon. Please call ahead that afternoon and we can give you a more specific time.
If you can’t make that, the goats will be shorn Saturday, May 14th at 4 p.m. While not quite as dramatic, it is also informative and fascinating to watch. We expect some of our 4-H kids to be here, in which case, they will give an agility demonstration.
May 21st and 28th we begin our season at the Lansdale Farmers Market.
ART CAMP AT LITTLE LOST CREEK ALPACA FARM
All the information about our 2016 Art Camps can be found on the Art Camps page. Click on the tab to the left.
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:
- Updates on your alpaca’s health, weight and activities (such as shows it may enter or markets it might visit).
- An 8×10 photo of you and your alpaca.
- A copy of your alpaca’s National ARI registry certificate.
- An alpaca finger puppet.
- 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.
- Help in the shearing of your alpaca and receive a sample of its his or her’s 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.
