Here's what we have been doing...
We have been very busy settling in but we have finally done it. The move is complete. The
store is open. The mill is operating at full speed. The animals have adjusted well.
So for 2020, dryer balls. I know, I know, some of you already know I'm making dryer balls. A select few, I have made dryer balls for. After piloting that program for the last year, we are ready to move forward and offer that as a service in our mill. Send us your 2nds and 3rds and we will send it back to you as dryer balls. It really is that simple. We have worked have to perfect our process and provide a consistent quality every time. Dryer balls are baseball size and approximately 2oz finished and wet felted very firm. Your cost:$2.00 per ball.
We also offer these dryer balls from our fiber at the wholesale cost of $2.75 each. buyer pays shipping.
This is a great way to use up those 2nds and 3rds.
After months of work, we are finally residents of Tennessee. Everything is finally on the new farm. Now we just need a little more time to be fully operational again. This has been a tremendous undertaking!
To all of our Wisconsin friends, family, customers and fellow alpaca farmers, we will be back to visit! All mill customers, thank you for your patience. We will be back up and running ASAP.
To all our new neighbors and customers, thank you for your very warm welcome and hospitality. We hope that we will be a blessing to the community...
Now to rest for a minute.....
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says to everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under Heaven
And as the year progresses, we are looking forward to spring. But that is not the only season we are looking forward to. It seems that Mesa Trail Alpacas is moving into a new season as well... literally moving. Plans are underway to move our farm and entire operation to another location early this summer. We are very excited about the opportunities this move brings. And as always, God seems to be guiding every step of the way. So as our season in Wisconsin ends, our season in Tennessee begins. We will continue raising, breeding and showing our alpacas. The mill will continue to produce extraordinary yarn and fiber products, along with some new ideas. The store will also remain, on farm and online, expanded, and with new opportunities for growth as well.
The farm is up for sale, show season is in full swing and shearing is fast approaching. So as we gear up for this new season, we will not be offering tours this spring/summer. Hopefully, once the move is complete, we will open for tours again just in another location.
We would like to thank those in the community who have supported us as well as our loyal customers who brought me fiber when I didn't have a clue and continued to bring it knowing it would improve. I am just in awe of the support we have received from the alpaca and fiber community. Just know that we consider you all family and hope to continue that relationship.
Yes! We are hosting Alpaca Farm Days this year. Come have a tour, watch our demonstrations, learn about alpacas and have our delicious alpaca cookies! September 29 9-5 and Sept 30 12-4. Hope to see you then!
The end of February is coming soon. The last day our farm store will be open this season is Sunday February 26. We are vigorously working on developing new products for our next season this fall.
Spring is also coming soon. This means shearing season and new cria. Start making plans now for your fiber processing.
We will also be attending several alpaca shows starting in March. We will keep you updated on show results.
Call to schedule a tour. We love to show off our beauties!
With another year under wraps, we are looking forward into this new year. Due to our limited time frame for the store ( we are only allowed to be open September through February), we are trying to make way for new yarn. We will be offering a 10% discount on all Mesa Trail brand yarn and roving throughout the month of January. We are also offering adorable, unique stitch markers, free with yarn purchase. Stop in to get your, soft, all natural alpaca yarn while supplies last.
Mesa Trail Alpacas will be closed Saturday, December 24th and Sunday, December 25th in observance of the Christmas Holiday. Have a safe and blessed holiday!
