Brief Update

Hayfields are in an explosion of emerald green which is a sign of healthy hay to come.

Alpaca shearing has begun. Our shearing schedule is booked for 2015 now.

Fresh Eggs Available Now

After recovering from the loss of most of our flock due to wandering dogs, our hens are now producing brown and green eggs at almost one dozen eggs daily. They are available for $3 a dozen.

In case you haven’t heard the latest and greatest news about using fresh eggs as hard boiled eggs, here it is. STEAM them. That’s right. Wash the eggs and put them in your steamer. After 20 minutes, plunge them straight into ICE WATER until they are barely warm to touch. Roll them on a surface with your hand to crack the shell and they should peel clean and easy.

Now you can use fresh eggs immediately without waiting weeks because of the difficulty in peeling them. Try it! You’ll never boil an egg again!!

How’s the Weather Treatin’ You?

While we humans are trying to wear as many layers of clothing as possible and still be able to flex our limbs, the alpacas are in their element. They have been romping in the snow and basking out in the sun when it makes an appearance.

Alpaca fiber has amazing insulative properties. If you were to put your bare hand into their fleece to make skin contact, you would be surprised to find how warm they are under all of that fuzz!

We have socks, hats and other items made from alpaca fiber that will help keep you warm in this harsh weather.

Stop by the toasty warm studio on Saturdays after 1pm until 7pm.
