It can be cold. It can be dusty. It can be hard on your feet. But the take away is bringing a smile to the faces of everyone who encounters an alpaca at Farm Show. It may be their very first time seeing these creatures and we have the exciting chance to educate them regarding all the wonderful aspects of owning alpacas.
You will spend the day with alpaca owners, breeders, enthusiasts and I guarantee you will walk away with some new nugget of information. It may be related to fleece, showmanship, herd health, or how to manage your farm business. No matter what, Farm Show is the mecca of agricultural and creative experience. The Alpaca Princess will be there along with other Royalty. The 4H and youth programs will show the animals. Fleece will be transformed into beautiful shawls.
Every year we have been offered more space and participation at the Show. It is so exciting to see our booth develop, offering PA Preferred products, hand dyed yarn, an array of alpaca items, as well as demos of hand-spinning, weaving, knitting/crocheting, needle felting, etc. Of course selfies with an alpaca are a must!!
When the time rolls around, please consider signing up for a few shifts during the event. Volunteers coming from out of the area may have the option to stay in a rented house nearby the Farm Show Complex – a chance for more alpaca conversation and camaraderie at the end of the day. Parking passes will be granted to Volunteers as well. Come be part of the excitement!
