Annual Alpaca Open House

Big Rock Alpaca Farm 2014 Open House

November 8, 9 & 15, 16, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The alpaca walking area is always a big hit for kids and adults alike.  Be sure to bring a camera to catch that moment your loved one gets an alpaca kiss.

Be sure to visit us at one of our earlier events to get one of our sticky notes/coupon pads.  Very useful as sticky notes, but be sure to keep the last one as coupon for your purchase in our shop.  If you can’t make it out to the open house, visit our online store to get some great alpaca products.

This year we hope to have quite a bit of alpaca yarn and alpaca rug yarn available, made with fiber from our own animals.

We plan to have the hay ride again, pulled by an antique tractor driven by Kelly’s father, or Josh.  Part of the hay ride route will also go past the highland cow pasture, and if they are cooperating you may get see them, including the calf that was born in August.

We have some different events on the different days this year.

November 9 – We’ll be doing our first alpaca product fashion show.  Come out and see some of the great alpaca products we have to offer.

November 15 1:00 PM – The East Berlin 4-H fiber club will be practicing for the Sheep to Shawl contest help at the PA Farm Show in January.

November 10 & 16 – Sundays tend to be lazier days so bring your knitting needles or crochet hooks and have a knit in.  We have heard from the mill, we should have some beautiful alpaca yarn available.  And we’re getting some of it dyed so there will be a wide selection of colors.
