alpaca's Profile

About

I am a mother of three and live in a small town in upstate New York (near the Canadian border). Growing up in Rochester, NY I always had a dream of (second to being a mom!) living in the country, in a log cabin, on the water, in the mountains while raising animals. .I think I have been blessed with an almost perfect reality! I live in the country, in a timber frame home we built ourselves (using the timber from where our home now stands!), on the Beaver River, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. On top of all this I raise alpacas! Our dog, cat & chickens add to the assortment! I have three super children (actually young adults!) and was fortunate to be able to stay at home with them while they were young...another desire of my heart. Additionally, as of July 2010, I also have a marvelous daughter-in-law!

I have a teaching degree and have used it from time…

I have a teaching degree and have used it from time to time in the school setting...mainly as a substitute teacher for about 20 years. As my children grew and became more independant I took time to learn more aspects of the fiber world. I enjoy spinning, knitting and weaving, although i have to say that all of it is a learning in the works! Fortunately I have wonderfully talented friends who are willing to help me out with answers! It is truly an art and something that I appreciate and continue to learn more about each day! I enjoy the time I spend alone working on individual pieces, as well as the time spent working closely with the community to produce sought after fiber art products.

Currently I own 10 alpacas and another 12 board here at my farm. I was up to 32 here but managed to sell some of them! I am a member of the Empire Alpaca Association, Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association, Alpaca Registry, Lewis County Chamber of Commerce & the Lewis County Industrial Development Agency.

This is a VERY smoke-free place...Special care is given to each and every item and customer.
