Sunday Pics from Sundown Alpaca Ranch

Well Sunday's weather was a little warmer and sunnier than Saturday.  We had a few more visitors along with friends and family at the ranch.  My  "Aunt Betty" was dressed as a clown. She passed out ballons and suckers to the children.  They managed not to stick any suckers in the fiber of the Alpacas.  All in all we had a great time visiting with everyone.  Thanks for coming out.

National Alpaca Farm Days Open House

Sundown Alpaca Ranch is hosting an Open House the weekend of Sept. 25th & 26th, 2010.
Sat. from 11:00  to 6:00 & Sun. from 12:00 to 6:00
Follow this link  National Alpaca Farm Days and do a search for MI farms and you can get a map to our ranch.

This is a good time for all of you that expressed an interest in seeing our Alpacas to come out and visit us this weekend.  And a special offer for all of you spinners, knitters and weavers, as we are going to offer you something exciting for next years Alpaca fiber harvest.  We are now a CSA Alpaca Ranch. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Our fiber CSA will allow you to own a share of our alpaca herd and receive yarn and/or roving from our herd as if you owned the alpacas yourself.  When you purchase a share of our 2011 fiber harvest, you will not only receive a selection of fiber or yarns, you will also be invited to participate in the life on the ranch. You can come out for Ranch Workdays during the year (actually working is optional, of course!), and attend special events held here at the ranch. There will be more information and what other benefits you will receive with your CSA purchase next weekend during the open house.  Of course there will be a limited amount of shares to be sold so everyone will receive a lot of fiber and yarn.  Once the shares are all sold, you can be placed on a waiting list for the following year.  So come on out and visit the alpacas and see where your yarns and fibers will be coming from.
