And that makes me happy!  The alpacas are spending the day in their barn, due to the strong wind-and-rain storm we're receiving.  I can see them all cushed in front of the doorways, watching Mother Nature's wrath of wind blow the rain and...

You're Milking What?

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Monday August 27, 2012   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

All good stories start “a long time ago…” which, when you’re a mature 23 years of age, eight years of hard work, study, and dedication seems like one of those legendary ages.  And, just like many of those great epic journeys, it starts in a very...

Ode to the Red Wheel Barrow

As I sit here typing this, I swear I can hear a bugle in the distance playing ‘Taps’ .................. Well, last evening it finally happened.  Our old, very, very old wheelbarrow, carried its last ever pile o’ alpaca poo over to...
