The Alpaca Farm

This weekend, I visited the Krystal Acres Alpaca Farm on the island.  The farm includes about 80 acres of land and a herd of about 70 alpacas.  The scenery is beautiful including lush grass, ponds, and lots of wildlife. It is an ideal place to raise alpacas.  The alpacas are very cute and gentle creatures; however, as much as I tried, they did not want to be pet.  I met one of the owners, Kris Olsen, who actually shows some of the alpacas at competitions. They are judged primarily by the quality of their fur.  Their fur is extremely soft and very expensive to buy. At the farm, you can buy many alpaca fur products including hats, sweaters, scarves, and yarn.  It is definitely worth visiting the farm to see the adorable alpacas!
