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.
If you haven’t visited our farm yet, you can take a video tour produced by Montco Happenings TV, in the comfort of your own home.
Spring has finally arrived and the alpacas can’t wait to get out to pasture, although they will still have to wait awhile until the grass decides to grow. As the weather begins to warm up, it’s a good time to come visit our menagerie or greet your adopted alpaca.
On Saturday, April 29, Chester passed his therapy dog test. And we might add with flying colors. We are hoping to take him for visits to nursing homes, etc.
On Saturday, April 22, many of our 4-H kids and parents volunteered at Green Lane Park to tear out invasive plant life.
Shearing days have been determined.
The alpacas will be shorn on May 4. We won’t know exactly what time, but we told the shearer lo come late in the day. Anyone who would like to attend and help out (we always need plenty of help), please call mid-afternoon. In the past he’s come around 4-4:30.
The goats and sheep get their turn on Saturday, May 4 at 3:00 . This is always an entertaining event as our shearer loves to talk about what he is doing and interact with the spectators. We also hope to have a few of our 4-H kids here to give an alpaca agility demonstration. Don’t be late as it doesn’t take more than a half hour to do all four of them.
Also, on May 6, we will be participating in the Abington Friends School Ecofest from 10-noon at the Jenkintown campus.
May 20th marks the start of the Lansdale Farmers Market, which this year is being held at Penndale Middle School. We hope to see some of you at the very popular market.
Also in the month of May, Sandy will be holding a dryer ball workshop on May 13th and 25th.
New! Dryer Ball Workshop
Many of you have seen or purchased our 100% natural dryer balls. Besides being a chemical-free way to soften your clothes, they are extremely durable, and great as thoughtful gifts. We are now offering two workshops on how to make your own. Each participant will make 3 dryer balls, decorating the surface with vibrant color and the design of your choice. Each workshop is limited to 6 participants.
Two dates are being offered:
Saturday May 13, 1 – 3pm
Thursday May 25, 7 – 9pm
Cost: $40, including all supplies
Please call Sandy with any questions or to sign up: 484-431-9305.
New Farm Store Items
We have a few new items in our farm store you may not have seen.
Come meet these cute little penguins. Each hand-felted penguin comes with its own birth certificate, listing name, birth date, height, weight and favorite ice cream flavor.
We have also added alpaca slippers to go along with our very popular socks.
Spring Cleaning Sale
For the months of April and May, we will be giving 20% off belts and leashes, select scarves and hats, and fleece flops.
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:
- 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 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.
