We celebrate everything Alpaca with our annual Open House this weekend, Saturday, Sept 29th and Sunday, Sept 30th from 10 to 4 each day. Come and visit these beautiful and majestic animals as well as some of our other farm friends. We will also have spinning demos, felting demos, refreshments and fun. Mother Nature is calling for some questionable weather but we will still be open for visitors! Our farmstand will be filled with everything we make here on the farm!

It's official, those wonderful days of Autumn are upon us! I found this old file picture of our Yorkie, Zoe on a fall day looking out over our pumpkins. My favorite time of year and my favorite things...pumpkins, scarecrows, simmering cider, apple and pumpkin pie, fall leaves, the crisp smell in the air, hoodies, festivals and fairs, autumn walks, the smell of wood burning, spinning and knitting, and the feeling of home...

Well we have reached the official end of summer. I was out taking pictures of some of our Alpacas for an upcoming event and had to share! "Cyrus" on the left and "Royal" on the right just chillaxin" on this last day of summer. Hail and farewell to one of the hottest summers on record, we welcome fall with open arms...

She went to see Dr Carlson and I was very worried about her prognosis but my worries were turned to optimism by the Vet and his staff. He stitched her uterus back into place and did not see any form of infection! However, "Rose" is retired, she will never lamb again and of course this is the first time he had seen a prolapse from a sheep that was not even pregnant! She will live her life out here on our little farm and already has a legacy of a daughter and a granddaughter, our white little ewe, "Daisy".

I was lucky enough to come across this amazing find the other day, bees collecting to make Propolis!
I must say I feel blessed to have seen this for myself. We all need to take a walk sometimes and see what nature is showing in today's matinee'.
