Vermont Fiber Mill & Maple View Farm Fall Open House

September 16 @ 11:00 am - September 17 @ 4:00 pm

What’s an alpaca? What do you do with them? How is yarn made?

Find out the answers to these questions and many more at the Alpaca Farm & Fiber Mill Fall Open House. Located in Brandon, VT, Maple View Farm Alpacas and the Vermont Fiber Mill & Studio will be open to visitors from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, Septamber 17. Join us for a fun weekend on the farm!

Visitors will be greeted by over 20 alpacas including cria (baby alpaca) born this season. The unique capabilities of the FeltLOOM will be demonstrated and the fiber mill can be viewed in action.  Fiber products made from luxurious alpaca will be on display and available for sale at the farm store.

Ed and Debbie Bratton have been raising alpacas for 15 years at their 100 acre farm in Brandon. Alpacas are a domesticated species of the South American Camelid, raised for the fine, warm, hypoallergenic fiber they produce. Alpaca fiber, which comes in 22 natural colors, is used to make knitted and woven items, similar to wool.

The Brattons opened a newly built fiber mill and studio on the farm in 2012. The mill offers custom processing of fiber into high quality batts, roving, yarn and felt.
