Cooler temps this fall means a great time to get outside and enjoy the fresh crispy air. Or at least I have high hopes for cooler temps! LOL! Start your outdoor adventures at our farm! We offer field trips that cover National Standards in Science, Social Studies, Math, and ELA. Our education stations give learners a chance to explore the farm, learning what is needed for alpacas and llamas to survive and thrive, and how we use them, the importance of water conservation, and discover fun facts about a variety of our farm animals. We also have a worm display where students can observe earth worms and their importance in healthy soil. During the wildflower walk, students and leaders will explore pollination by reading the story “On This Farm Trail”. For homeschool groups, clubs, and civic organizations, this is a great chance to get your members outdoors and enjoy the day. Can’t visit the farm in-person? We offer virtual options as well. Oh and an added benefit, we are located less than 4 miles from another education-focused farm, Lever Farms. Visit both farms in one day and complete a full day of learning.
Looking for a fun weekend adventure? Visit the farm on Saturdays from 10 am until 2 pm. We have several events scheduled this fall. National Alpaca Farm Days will be held the last weekend in September. This free event gives everyone a chance to experience alpacas up-close and view live demonstrations. Want to learn about raising and breeding alpacas? Our Alpacas 101 class held on October 8th is for you! This seminar will provide you with information about alpacas, their care, and the physical requirements for a farm. Enjoy the farm on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at our first annual Paint and Pour scheduled for October 16th. Coastal Strokes’ Mary Anne Hundt Dunn will help visitors create their very own alpaca masterpiece.
During our events, visitors can tour the farm, feel the alpaca fleece, have a chance to feed the herd, and enjoy a fun-filled day for the entire family. Oh, and alpacas love selfies! Our farm store will be open stocked with all things alpaca and llama related plus tons of farm fresh chicken and duck eggs.
