National Alpaca Farm Days Planned for September 23 and 24

Alpaca your bags: Animals in spotlight at farm’s open house

Hoosier Heartland Alpacas’ annual fall open house will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Spinners will be making yarn and perhaps some knitters. Pumpkins and chickens have been added for this year’s free event, which is a part of National Alpaca Farm Days.

Attendees are invited to bring their cameras and chairs.

During National Alpaca Farm Days, alpaca owners from across the United States and Canada are inviting the public to come to their farm or ranch to meet their alpacas and learn more about these inquisitive, unique animals, the luxury fiber they produce and why the alpaca business is perfect for environmentally conscious individuals.

Hoosier Heartland Alpacas, owned by Ed and Juvonda Jones, is at 2500 N. County Road 1000W, Seymour, a mile and a half southeast of Reddington and two miles off of U.S. 31.
