Farm / RichEarth Acres

Farm Type: Alpaca Farm

RichEarth Acres is a small Alpaca farm with a focus on the Fibre Arts.

Our focus is on creating and making useful and purposeful items with alpaca fibre.

  • Come and meet our herd of Alpacas, watch and join in on demonstrations on how the wool is processed from animal to wearable items, like mittens, sweaters and socks.
  • Try your hand at preparing fibre and spinning with a drop spindle. We will also have demonstrations on weaving and locker hooking.
  • See our local children’s author and her alpaca book, “The First Day the Snow Fell” , inspired by the farm.
  • As well as explore our artisan market.
