Shearing on the Farm – May 3 & 4

White Owl, Butch Cassidy, Mooncake, Ulysses, and Ninja

Alpaca Shearing season is here!  Shearing season is always a fun time to visit the farm because you can see alpacas both shorn and unshorn, and be amazed at the difference their lovely (and dense) alpaca coats make in their size.  We have a good start on shearing already and have many of the alpacas running around the farm showing off their skinny bodies and long necks, so stop by and say hi to our sleek alpacas who are ready for summer this week while they wait for everyone else to get shorn.

David and Claire have been busy shearing for alpaca farms in North Carolina and Virginia, including our farm last weekend.  They will be shearing at Peaceful Heart Alpacas again on May 3 & 4.  We invite everyone to come by the farm to watch the alpacas get their winter coats off and prepare for summer.  The farm will be open our regular hours on those weekends, Saturday 10am – 5pm and Sunday 1-5pm.  Shearing will be ongoing throughout the day with a break for lunch.
