A working Alpaca Farm where you can experience all we have learned. We invite you to visit and learn fiber harvesting "Field to Barn" and processing for spinners "Barn to Yarn".
"A Day on an Alpaca Farm" Hands-on Experience
Scheduling April and May dates
GET FREE FIBER!
Over the last few years ALPACA-Dabra Alpaca Farm has developed a shearing technique that pre-sorts the fiber and utilizes volunteers for the various tasks involved in the shearing process. This year we will be shearing April and May dates. We generally shear 4-6alpacas a day.
Volunteers earn a share of the fiber harvest of beautiful alpaca fiber by their participation and willingness to learn. If you are willing to bag fiber, weigh it, or handle it, you could be a big help to us and get free fiber in exchange. For the more adventurous and physically able, we will will be happy to teach you alpaca handling and shearing assistance. Some tasks are standing, some are sitting and some are petting alpacas.
See the process for yourself.
