Taking place September 29-30, 2019, National Alpaca Farm Days is a weekend-long event that will take place at Der Bauernhof Farms in central Illinois.
This annual, two-day event is free of charge and open to the public. It will allow guests to see alpacas and learn about life on this little-known farm like never before.
Additionally, visitors will get to feel the incredible fibers that come from the alpacas and which are used to make handcrafted clothing, hats, and even jewelry.
These items will be for sale at the event and at other times at the farm's shop, known as 5 Miles East, as it sits about five miles east of Bloomington.
A wide array of products made from alpaca fiber can be found at this shop on the farm, and it's worth a trip here just to feel your way through the unique fabrics.
The event will take place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Otherwise, these items are sold at stores in Wisconsin and at other special events.
Bring a picnic, your family or friends, and your camera for an unforgettable day at this fabulous alpaca farm. Enjoy demonstrations, feedings, and more.
