Down on the Farm!
By: Talia Lumpkin (Jun 9, 2012)
This alpaca farm is down a sweet little dirt road, Blueberry Lane, with a serene setting of beautiful farmland all around. When you visit, you feel at peace and will most likely yearn for the simple things in life. Owners, Andy and Cheryl, offer many educational opportunities such as field trips, family farm events, and classes such as spinning, crocheting and knitting. I participated in a spinning class last fall, which was so much fun, and now I am on the hunt to find my first spinning wheel! I have also attended a family farm day in which many local crafters come together and display their goods while offering demos on how they make their products....things such as honey, soaps, aromatherapy, handmade knitted and crocheted items, etc!! Take time to visit these sweet, furry creatures and learn about their way of life and the many avenues of creativity their fleece offers. As a knitter, alpaca fleece is my favorite to knit with...the most luxurious!
