[small groups, field trips, and families are all welcome]
A hands on experience suitable for anyone interested in natural textile processes. Bring your own picnic lunch and eat among the menagerie of alpacas, two donkeys, a sheep, and a goat, stroll the wooded path along the creek, and witness a slice of life on this productive little homestead nestled on the Cumberland Plateau.
Price: $10/person (children under 2 are free)
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
On a standard tour you will have the opportunity to walk around the farm, meet + feed the animals, and learn a bit about our daily routine. Throughout the visit I will also offer a brief demonstration on processing raw fiber all the way into a finished product via carding, spinning, and weaving.
Please wear clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. This is a working farm, not a petting zoo: although there are a few resident critters that will run right up to greet you at the gate.
** Available by appointment [please allow at least 24 hr notice]

** If you are a school group that is interested in extending your visit by including a craft of some kind (spinning, weaving, felting, natural dyeing, etc) we are equipped to host up to 40 people at a time, and can put together a customized schedule of events to fit your curriculum goals.
[pricing varies depending on activity / group size ]
Workshops at the farm offer an opportunity to extend your visit by attending an alpaca shearing, learning how to naturally dye, weave, spin, etc. [Workshops can be customized depending on group interest and skill level.]
