Mansfield farm planning spring celebration

February 4, 2018 by  

Some of Mansfield furry friends will soon be celebrating spring, and they want to share the occasion with the local community.

Alpaca Meadows is home to a herd of alpacas, and they will still be wearing their winter coats that have almost a year’s worth of growth. The public is invited to meet the animals before they get their springtime shearing, and the fibers from this will be used to make an assortment of materials.

Those who come to the occasion will have an opportunity to learn more about raising these animals, and Fitzgerald, who is the enterprise’s new angora rabbit, will also be on hand to meet the visitors. The farm’s store will be open for business, and a variety of new products will be on offer.

Demonstrations of how the alpaca and rabbit fur are spun into yarn have been planned, and guests can have their pictures taken with one of the resident alpacas during this free function. Postcard printing can be utilized to craft items that can be sent out to let local households know that a celebration like this has been planned for their area.

The Spring Farm Open House will be taking place on April 28 and 29, and it is located at 1200 Rock Road North in Mansfield. Anyone who would like to learn more about the occasion can contact the organizer through its event listing.
