Celebrate National Alpaca Farm Days on the SouthCoast
National Alpaca Farm Days are Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29 of 2019.
Alpaca Owners Association Inc. created this fun holiday to bring awareness about these fluffy creatures and their fur. So many items are made from their coats, including sweaters, scarves, and socks. Alpaca farms across the country are opening their gates to the public in honor of National Alpaca Farm Days. Almost all of them allow you and your family to experience alpacas up-close, feel the alpaca fleece, tour the farm, view live demonstrations, learn about raising and breeding alpacas, and shop for alpaca products.
There are two alpaca farms on the SouthCoast of Massachusetts that you can visit to celebrate accordingly:
Sippican River Farm, Rochester, MA. Event to take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Meet the alpacas, learn about what makes them so unique, and how products are made from their fleece. Great activity for children. No charge for admission.
Hill Crest Alpacas, Dartmouth, MA. Event to take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Meet the alpacas, feel their fleece, tour the farm, live demonstrations, learn about raising and breeding alpacas, shop alpaca products, fudge and face painting.
As an added bonus, here is an alpaca farm located in Rhode Island:
Hope Alpaca Farm LLC, Little Compton, RI. The event will take place on Saturday, September 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Meet the alpacas and learn more about these unique animals and the fiber they produce. The farm will have alpaca products for sale including hats, socks, yarn, gloves & mittens, scarves, headbands, stuffed alpacas and more.
Excuse me as Alpaca pun into this post since I cannot help myself.
