Burrrr! Just when you thought Spring was Here

We were spoiled with a beautiful weekend and silly us, we expected it to stay like that! For a second there, I forgot we live in New England. As the saying goes, "If you don't like the Weather, just wait a minute." Unfortunately that holds true the other way around, if you are enjoying the Weather, know that it can vanish in just a minute.

After looking at the U.S. forecast it looks like a lot of you are getting Rain Today, whenever it is gloomy around here I always watch some of our Farm Videos from Summer to cheer me up - here is a small collection of our Hummingbird Videos we shot last year - can't wait until they come back!

 

Enjoy!

When we aren't running the farm or business we like to...

Sit back and enjoy the Weather. Since a very young age I can remember being an avid Weather lover, always mesmerized by the sheer force of Mother Nature. Luckily living in New England we are able to experience a wide spectrum of what Mother Nature has to offer, as the old saying goes - "Don't like the Weather? Just wait a minute."

We have been embracing the use of online video to market and advertise our farm for a little over a year now and we have learned a tremendous amount in that short time period. When we first set out to publish online video of our Farm, Vimeo.com was just becoming popular and it was a perfect fit. Not only do we host our Alpaca Videos there, but we also take part in their very active community, and we actually now moderate their HD Weather Channel.

If you, like us, love Weather in all it's forms, I encourage you take a few moments and check out our Weather Chanel, we have over 100 videos ranging from Time Lapses to violent Lightning Storms. The majority of the videos are in High Definition, and we are always looking to add more so don't hesitate to send in your submissions.

You can get a quick glimpse into the channel by looking at the widget embedded below, or you can head directly to The HD Weather Channel on Vimeo to see each video in it's full glory.

Bird Watching on this Rainy Day!

Here is a quick video we shot with our new HD Camera, the Canon HV30. We couldn't be happier with it! Tons of different birds in this one, including our Wild Turkeys!

Happy Holidays from Golden Touch Alpaca Farm!

Everyone here at Golden Touch Alpaca Farm wanted to take a quick second and wish you all a Happy (and warm) Holiday! We have been getting slammed with snow this past weekend but all our Alpaca are safe and cozy in their barns.

 Here is a video we shot over the weekend.

 

Note: If you experience stutter on playback, click off the HD ON button in the top right corner of the video. It also helps to allow the video to fully buffer before hitting play. Enjoy!

Golden Touch Farm's Weather Channel

Online Video has become such a major part of our Farm's persona. It allows us to share our Farm, Animals, Products, and all other aspects of our life with our neighbors whether they live on our street or across the world. They also act as a wonderful marketing tool, as they stir up interest and introduce our farm to people who were not necessarily looking for it.

We use Vimeo.com to showcase our videos for a bunch of reasons, but mainly because it has such an amazing community and great accessible staff. When browsing videos on YouTube, you can't but notice that almost every video has horrible/negative comments on it, regardless of the subject matter. Vimeo is the exact opposite, people are supportive, helpful, and exciting to share their own little worlds through online video.

Not only do we upload all of our own videos there, we also use the site to make our own channel, called the Weather Channel. As farmers, we are all obsessed with the Weather and spend half of our lives watching it, our Channel is a collection of all the best Weather videos submitted to Vimeo by a ton of different users from across the planet. Below is our Channel, when you have a free moment be sure to watch it.
