Alpacas raised in Maine. Book now to visit Cape Newagen Alpaca Farm in Southport Maine!
Ms. Maddens Pk/K class is observing in their community how animals and plants change their environment based on weather changes and patterns. On their visit to Cape Newagen Alpaca Farm on 11/10/15, we talked about how alpacas change to keep warm when the weather changes. The children were able to feel Jackpots soft fleece. They also felt Caliente's fleece from last year that was on the skirting table. They worked together to crank the carding machine that aligns the fiber in order to prepare it to make yarn. They saw how we use the rougher fiber as nesting material for the birds in order to help the birds keep warm during the colder weather. They had lots of fun feeding hay and apples to the alpacas and a few children received some alpaca kisses (almost). Everyone had a great time! Thanks for visiting!
