Alpacas go to High School

Two of our ‘girls’ went to Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School yesterday as part of Green Week.  Students were able to feed the alpaca and card some fiber.  Some nervous students giggled or squealed when the girls gently scooped grain from their open palms.  There were many questions asked about the care of alpacas and the products made from their fiber.  There were a few times that the CeCe and Mariah felt a bit stressed by the ‘pack’ of teenagers surrounding them. but they retreated to the safety of the trailer.  We hope that we were able to help educate the students about these creatures and how they give back to us with their unique fiber, their rich bean fertilizer and of course, their cuteness!
