Visit a Vermont Alpaca Farm

 

Fun visit for a late November weekend getaway.

Are weaving and fiber arts part of your life? Take a “hobby trip” to Vermont. Fiber artists and growers work all around Addison County, Vermont. We found one farm last weekend. From Cornwall Orchards B&B, follow picturesque country roads east for 20 minutes to Brandon, Vermont. Tucked away down Adams Road, is the Maple View Alpaca Farm. Knitters and weavers will be inspired by the sweet-natured animals, the fiber mill, and the little store.

Alpacas were all fluffy for our visit. The farmer explained all about them.

Good viewing of the entire spinning process in the authentic fiber mill.

I came home with roving for my drop spindle. Come stay with us at our lovely B&B and, after a delicious breakfast with ingredients from other local farms, you can teach me how to use it!
