We don’t have reindeer – but we do have alpacas! And visiting with our herd at Open Farm Day is always fun for the whole family! Our Holiday OFD is December 14! During your visit you can tour the farm, learn, about alpacas, and how we use their fleece. You can interact with and feed the alpacas – even learn their names! Each one is unique and very special to us! We make holiday shopping easy too! Our Farm Store is stocked with gifts for everyone on your list. Alpaca gloves and hats, scarves and shawls, and unique toys for kids! Imagine how surprised your friends and relatives will be when they open a soft and warm gift made from alpaca fleece. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served at the Farm Store. The Farm Store will also be open December 7 & 21, in case you can’t make it to Open Farm Day. Hours are 10-3. A unique gift idea is to enroll your friends in our Adopt-A-Paca© program. Your gift recipient can have a very special alpaca to visit if they visit the farm! But even if they can’t, they will get an official certificate, a picture of their alpaca and occasional letters from them too! You can choose which alpaca to adopt for them. And why not adopt one for yourself as well? Create special holiday memories by attending Open Farm Day. There is always something new to learn and see at the farm, so if you’ve been here before, please come again! Stop by anytime on Saturday, December 14 between 10 am and 3 pm! Be ready for plenty of picture taking too! It’s always free admission and free parking. Windrush Alpacas farm is located just 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM.
