Alpaca Odyssey and Farm Festival set for May 27

May 3, 2012 | 0 comments

The 12th annual Alpaca Odyssey and Farm Fest from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 27, at LondonDairy Alpacas, rain or shine.

This event is free but monetary donations or a canned food item are being accepted at the gate for the Two Rivers/Mishicot Food Pantry.

Attendees are invited to enter the raffle to win an alpaca.

This event has attracted over 1,000 people for the day in past years. Alpacas will be walked throughout the crowd for close interaction.

Live music will be provided by folk singer Rebecca Markvart.

See demonstrations on fiber spinning and carding. Observe several mother alpacas with their babies (crias).

Kevin Stoer will be available to answer questions on alpacas.

There will be a wide variety of venders with handmade soaps, gift wear, honey, crafts, perennial plants and other treats.

Visitors can talk to members of the 4-H Alpaca/Llama project of Manitowoc County. This is the first year these members will be judged at the Manitowoc County Fair.       

Food and refreshments will be available the entire day, with all proceeds going to Wildlife of Wisconsin.

Alpacas have been in the United States for over 20 years. They are the fastest growing livestock endeavor in the nation.

Alpacas produce one of the world's finest and most luxurious natural fibers. Alpaca fiber is very fine, thus making it one of the softest natural fibers available.

Originally only Inca royalty was allowed to wear the alpaca fiber. Alpaca is as soft as cashmere and comes in more natural colors than any other fiber producing animal. Alpaca fiber is warmer and stronger than other natural fibers.

Alpaca is also a very clean fiber that contains no grease, lanolin or oils. The vast majority of people allergic to sheep wool are not allergic to alpaca.

LondonDairy Alpacas is located a half-mile north of Two Rivers on Highway 147, about 35 miles south of Green Bay from I-43 to Highway 147, or 85 miles north of Milwaukee. Maps are available at www.Londondairyalpacas.com, or call 1-920-793-4165.
