Since we have moved our store to the farm, we are still working on figuring out our store hours. It is looking like Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 - 4:00 or by appointment will work best for now. Please check back regularly for updates and for a list of our upcoming events. We have some new alpaca/merino batts hot off the press and a great selection of felting supplies and beautiful alpaca yarn too.
Our farm store is open today, June 24th from 12:00 - 4:00. You can find us at 820 County Road 18.
Our farm store is open June 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th 10:00 - 4:00. We are closed on Sunday, June 25th. We will be at Wendy's Country Market in Lyndhurst on Sunday with alpacas and alpaca products. Come see us there.
Have you always wanted alpacas but are not quite ready for them? We might have a viable option for you. We are planning our 2016 breeding season. Come for a farm visit and we can help you choose a suitable pairing. You will pay for the breeding and the resulting cria is yours. We will keep the little one with mom until it is ready to be weaned. Not sure what you would do with the alpaca fibre, we may have an option for you. We would be happy to buy your graded and classed alpaca fibre by the pound. We are looking for potential alpaca farms to buy fibre from and reducing the number of animals that we have on-site so that we have more time for product development. We take a lot of pride in the care and health of our animals so potential buyers need to do the same. Something to think about!

We have finalized dates for a weaving course and a knitting machine course. Details will be posted shortly on our Workshop page and on-line registration will open next week.
We are offering a beginner's weaving course on June 25th and a Knitting Machine Course on July 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th.
All our other courses do not currently have scheduled dates but if you have a group of four or more, we would be happy to arrange a mutually convenient date to offer the course specifically for your group.
We are busy getting our farm store up and ready to open for the 416 ArtKruze. I am also finalizing details for courses: knitting machine course, FeltLoom course and weaving course. As soon as my internet is up and running (hopefully by the end of today) I will be able to post course details. We are also looking at having scheduled spinning nights once a month. Bring your own wheel and for $10.00 per night per person, we will have an experienced spinner offer guidance.
We raise alpacas and produce many different alpaca products and fibre related artwork. We are in the process of moving our store to the farm with our ultimate goal of becoming a destination rather then a location. We invite you to come meet the animals that are our "raisons d'etre". We are open the year round and have a beautiful selection of alpaca products, offer a range of fibre related courses and educational farm visits. Alpacas, angora goats, sheep, free range chickens, guinea fowl and 3 cats are all part of the experience.
Our farm store will open the week-end of the 416 ArtKruze on June 11th. We are stop number 3. On the Sunday of the 416 ArtKruze, we will be giving all sorts of fibre arts demonstrations: dying, spinning and felting just to name a few. We look forward to your visit so we can share our passion for what we do.
Kathy & Corinne and all our furry and feathery critters
