|Me looking at alpaca fur Notice my sweater.|
This alpaca farm is up the way from us. When the weather turned cold, I decided I needed a new sweater. We drove back into the hills and discovered this charming man and his farm. He used to be an economist in Rome, and wanted to get out of the rat race. In the 80's he bought this property and tried many different ways to make the land produce. He eventually found alpacas and has been in love with the animals. I must say they are very sweet. THey are in the camel family, cousins to llamas but according to him are smarter and sweeter. They seemed very sweet to me.
If ever you are in the Niccone valley, you should stop in and see them.
