Spring is here, summer is near, but what is up with the weather?
Our open dates are quite limited this time of year due to all the activities that our kids have chosen. Our sincere apologies if you miss us. We do hope to find a time when you can visit.
Additional weekend and possible evening dates will be spontaneously announced on our FaceBook page.
We can accommodate special requests, send us a message or give us a call (607) 227-8458 and we may be able to open the store just for you!
Check out our Schedule Below. Plan your visit now!
How about an alpaca rug, alpaca socks, alpaca yarn?
We are impatiently awaiting the arrival of Bella's baby. She was due either May 1 (350 days pregnant) or May 5th (355 days), but as of May 21st she has passed both those dates and is still going! We are not worried, alpacas give birth whenever they are ready, some have gone as long as 400 days!
NOTE: UNUSUAL TIMES!!

We recently brought in a super-rare surprise. TWIN alpacas. The boys are already a year old and are on the farm as buddies for Sundance. These twins do have fancy registered names, but their nicknames are Bert and Ernie.
Keep an eye on this page and our FaceBook page for our open days during rest of the winter, spring, and into summer!

Stock up on yarn!
In the summer your knitters love to stay busy, we have a large selection of 100% USA alpaca yarns. We stock handspun yarn as well as mill-spun yarn. Grab some for yourself or your favorite knitter/crocheter for some happy project time. I personally enjoy knitting with super-soft local yarns while the kids enjoy ball games and practice.
Super-soft and amazing rugs made from our fiber. Truly an indulgence. Worth every penny. 100% USA made.
Check out the socks that we have available at Monticello Mercantile in Monticello, Illinois!
Are you interested in having more events? A Canvas and Corks event, an alpaca seminar, an arts and crafts seminar? Drop us an e-mail to let us know. If there is enough interest, we can make it happen!
We love guests. Give us a call at 607-227-8458 to arrange a tour or special visit.
Weekends work best and we give free weekend
tours when we are here.
Group tours on a weekday
are not available.
While we build our customer base, we are giving away alpaca manure.
We do accept financial donations toward the care and feeding of the alpacas.
How was your garden this year? Consider using alpaca manure as fertilizer.
Manure can be added directly to the garden without harming your plants!
