Farm Raising - grand prize drawing

Well, we had our Farm Store (Barn) Raising event on March 20, 2021. We had a great time online (Zoom) and want to thank every one who attended, purchased or donated to our cause. We have purchased Sherwin Williams paint in their new color - ALPACA. How cool is that. We also have purchased lights and the flooring and have some money left for whatever.

We have the store insulation completed with our 2nd and 3rd from prior years shearing. Visqueen over that, sheet rock. Now we are read more...

We Have Moved

Sawdust Alpacas has finally moved from Reno to Fallon NV. All alpacas are now with us in their new home. We upgraded the land from 2 acres to 5. We have had to start the building process anew as we had to leave all our shelters, fencing etc with our Reno facility.

We have temporary shelters and pens for all alpacas. We will be designing new areas for them soon. Alpacas are pretty well situated right now. Wish we could say the same for the house. Lots of stuff to unpack, put u read more...

FLOODING IN LEMON VALLEY NV

3/16/2017

3/16/2017

It's been a busy wet winter in the High Desert of Nevada. With all the snow and rain, heavy run off, and all the water pools near here at Swan Lake.
