My dream of having a farm store has become a reality.  Our garage has been modified and is now my "studio" where we will have alpaca product for sale.  We will have raw fiber, roving, yarn, socks, hats, gloves, scarves, and other alpaca products.  If we don't have it we will try our best to get it for you.  We hope this venture will take us in a new direction in providing product people are interested in and we hope through product sales we will be able to offer a better variety of items.   The store will be open Tues, Wed, Thurs, and Mon Dec 18, 19, 20, and 24 from 12 noon to 3 pm or by appointment.  You can call 417-548-0099(home) or 417-310-0566(cell) to make an appointment to visit and see what we have available.  We look forward to talking alpaca with you.  

We had a great time at the Alpaca in the Ozarks Halter Show in November in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  My sister Phoebe from Texas came to the show with us.  It was surprising how well she handled the alpacas as she has not been around them very much.  April received 2nd in her class.  May and June competed against each other and June took 2nd with May taking 3rd.  They were all very well behaved and friendly to all who walked past their stall.  They have retired from competing as they will be bred this spring and become first time mothers in spring 2014 we hope.

Come back soon to read about more adventures in alpaca land. 
Hummmmmmmmmmmssss to you til 
 
HI!  My name is Penny Moore and my family has a farm where we raise alpacas.  My husband Doug and I do most of the hands on work with the alpacas with the help of our daughter Sandra who lives with us at the present time.  We have another daughter Sabrena who comes to the farm occasionally to help as needed if Doug and I are away.  We have three grandchildren of which two are at the farm a couple of times a month.  Andrew is 9 and Malaki is 5 and they love to help us with the alpacas whether it is feeding or scooping poop. Our step granddaughter Cisha who is 10 likes coming to see the alpacas when she can.  We started this venture in 2008 and are very excited to start getting our farm name out into the public letting people know we have alpacas for sale, product available to purchase, and opportunities to help someone learn about alpacas and possibly starting an adventure for themselves.  We have gotten off to a slow start due to some personal health issues but as I continue to strive for better health we continue to strive for better quality in alpacas, fiber, products and farm. The last 5 years have been like a rollercoaster in that we continue to learn about the alpaca as an animal, their fiber and what quality and quantity means, breeding for better quality of fiber and better alpaca, and all the ins and outs of pasture health and maintenance and alpaca health and maintenance.  We have had good times like when a new cria is born and some bad times like when we had an alpaca pass away during labor.  Our good times definitely outweigh our bad times.  I am happy to have this opportunity to work with and learn about a different type of animal that is huggable, lovable and cute as can be.  I only hope I have many more years to give to these wonderful animals. I need to thank my four wonderful sisters and their families as the idea came about from two of them and everyone helps in one way or another with their helpful hands, ideas, thoughts, encouragement and prayers.  I must also thank my parents as they purchased the 250 acres that they live on, we live on, and we raise our amazing alpacas on.  Thanks MOM and DAD.
