Foothills Alpaca Farm to participate in National Alpaca Farm Days

On Sept. 27-29, alpaca breeders from across the United States and Canada invite the public to come to their farm or ranch to meet their alpacas and learn more about these inquisitive, unique animals, the luxury fiber they produce, and why the alpaca business is perfect for environmentally conscious individuals.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. those days, Foothills Alpaca Farm will welcome guests for many activities, including drawings for 10-inch teddy bears, and spinning demonstration, all for free.

Foothills Alpaca Farm is located at 190 68th Ave. S.W., Backus, MN 56435. Watch for signs.
