Our second pasture is completely fenced in now.
We've been dreaming of this for five years, and in just a couple of days - it's finished!
Our new pasture abuts our main pasture, which means we can transition the alpacas from one field to the other pretty easily.
Because one side of our main pasture fence divides the two areas. We replaced that span of fence with a new one.
It was old, rusty, and wonky -- it zig-zagged across the field to take advantage of trees that were used as gateposts, which we addressed by installing new gateposts and replacing the rusty old gate with a new one.
That fence is now a straight line and the entire area is enclosed to keep predators out and the alpacas safe.
the old fence zig-zagged across the field & used 2 trees for gateposts
The new fence has straight lines, new gates we can actually use and offers lots of new space
While the fence itself is done, the second pasture is not complete....yet!
The felled trees need to be cleaned up; the area needs landscaping, and seed needs to be planted.
But that didn't stop us from introducing the alpacas to the new area.
While Autumn hasn't officially started, we've been lining up our fall schedule to bring our farm-made and Peruvian products to you!
Find us this month at these locations for a wide selection of alpaca scarves, socks, hats, dryer balls, pet toys, and more!

Farm tours continue through Fall
Before long, the leaves will start to turn color and the alpacas' coats continue to grow thicker. It's a great time to meet these majestic animals against one of nature's beautiful backdrops.
