Shearing Day 2016

It’s that time of year already–the alpacas are due for their haircuts!!

April 9, 2016 from 8 am to 2 pm. Come enjoy the day–working or not is totally okay. Sister Rose is in charge of the weather again so we’re hoping for a great day. Bring the kids (borrow some if you must!) to spend some fun time outside.

Kim’s Bakery will have all of her goodies for sale. Greisemer’s Beekeeping returns with their honey assortment including local raw honey. Laura’s Garden is new this year; she offers pickled vegetables and infused vinegars.
