Free tour to focus on all things alpaca

posted by Daniel Crofts in events, farms, tours.

The Grant family of North Bergen invites people on a 30-mile tour of Alpaca Country, which includes a tour of their alpaca farm at 6499 N. Lake Road in Bergen.

This event is free, open to the public, and lasts from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25-26.

The tour includes five farms and will expose people to the wonders of the alpaca, which is the world's oldest domesticated animal.

They'll get to see, pet and feed the alpacas, learn about why they are bred, see spinning and fiber crafting demonstrations, enjoy refreshments and be able to buy alpaca products.

Passports to "Alpaca Country" can be picked up at any participating farm. These are to be stamped at each farm and entered into a raffle drawing at the end of the tour.

For more information on this event, please call Belinda Grant at 494-1371.

Event Date and Time: 
Saturday, September 25, 2010 - 10:00am to Sunday, September 26, 2010 - 5:00pm
