Farm Happenings

New addition

On September 15th, we acquired our newest addition, an eight week-old English shepherd sister for Chester. Chance (we are taking one) is a lovely girl who, when she’s not getting her puppy fire out of her is a laid back dog much like Chester. It took Chester a week to acknowledge her but now the two play like fiends. She was one of a litter of eight born in Slippery Rock, Pa. We forgot what is was like to raise a puppy (like having another child), but we are looking forward to many happy years with her. Stop by and see her.

4H

We completed our final community service commitment on Sept. 24th. For the past two years we have helped clean up the Schuylkill River Trail three times a year. We thank all the members who gave their time to support this worthwhile project.

4H Fair

The Montgomery County Farm, Home  and Youth Fair was held on Aug-8-10. As usual our 4-Hers performed well.

Naomi (left) was named Reserve Champion with the second highest combined score, and Sarah was the Grand Champion.

Storm of the Year

On May 29th we were struck with 90-100 MPH straight line winds. The damage was extensive, as you can see in the photos below. We estimate close to 50 trees blew over, crushing  500 feet of fencing and two gates. Somehow, only two fence posts were broken.

Miraculously, neither the house nor the barn took a direct hit, but the rear overhang of the barn sustained minor damage. We were out of power from Wednesday to Saturday. Fortunately we have a backup generator.

It will be a year or more before we get everything cleaned up and even then it’s not likely we will get our trails cleared. There are so may trees down, we can’t even see them at this point.

On July 10, 2018, Fox 29 visited our farm for a feature on our alpacas and 4-H Club.

We were featured at three time slots.

On June 8th we were featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Here is a video about the farm:

 Adopt an Alpaca (or sheep)

 Visitors to our farm have often remarked that they would love to own their own alpacas, but for one reason or another were unable to.

As a response to those people who love the animals but can’t own their own, we are offering an adoption program.

You can choose which alpaca you would like to adopt and for a fee of $25 ($30 through Paypal) you will receive the following:

  1. Updates on your alpaca’s health, weight and activities (such as shows it may enter or markets it might visit).
  2. A copy of your alpaca’s National ARI registry certificate.
  3. An alpaca finger puppet.
  4. Visitation rights. Give us a call when you would like to come out and see your alpaca. You can even take him or her for a walk.
  5. Help in the shearing of your alpaca and receive a sample of its his or her fiber.

The adoption program is valid for one year.

To choose your animal, you can look at them on our website. Just click Our Girls and Our Boys to see all of the alpacas or come to the farm and choose one in person. If you are interested, please give us a call, click on the red link below, fill out the application and send it to us, along with a check made out to LLCAF. If you prefer to pay through PayPal, go to our Farm Store (price there is $30). When we receive the notice of payment, we will send you the materials.
