Jason, Hunter, and I would all like to extend a big thank you to everyone who we were fortunate to encounter this last year. From our alpaca buyers and tour visitors to those who shopped in the store or covered our farm in the news – we are grateful to you.
Farming is an adventure! Read our farm blog posts and articles to follow our adventures as we leave corporate life and move from city dwellers to country farmers.
Alpaca birthday parties can be great fun. No matter what the weather, you can have tons of fun just feeding and hanging out with the alpacas on the farm.
Last week was busy and completely full of 4H fair activities for the Northwestern Michigan Fair in Traverse City. It was our first year at the fair, and I can safely say, it will not be the last.
Looking back that magic was a bit of family magic. Nothing of this magnitude can happen on its own. It was the family that helped prep land, raise beams, and build roofs. It was the cousins and uncles who crawled high, hammered nails, and provided physical and moral support.
As soon as I arrived, I knew this was home. The wide-open space backed up against woods, a creek, and a little pond. Across the street was a friendly horse farm with a welcoming white picket fence. It was everything I was looking for and it was exactly what I wanted to call home.
