Parsons’ Prairie Farm’s 2017 Fall Farm Day is almost upon
us! So come on out to the farm on Saturday afternoon, September 23rd or Sunday afternoon, September 24th or heck, come out both afternoons and see what we are all about. Learn about the alpacas and the fiber they
produce. Shop the farm store for
hand spun yarns and hand dyed yarns, rovings and craft felts. Start your Holiday shopping early by browsing
our selection of alpaca socks, hats and gloves as well as hand made soaps, made
right on the farm! Try your luck at
fishing in the farm pond, wander the property or just sit, relax and
enjoy the farm day refreshments.
Things to keep in mind:
We will hold the 2017 Fall Farm Days rain or shine, so come prepared for the
weather. If the weather is nice, we will
open the front alpaca pasture so you can move among the alpacas. If it rains, we will figure out a way that
visitors can view the alpacas close up and stay dry at the same time. In any kind of weather though, if you want to
move among the alpacas, make sure to wear poop-proof footwear!
We would like to invite you to try your luck at fishing in
our farm pond. We will mow down to the
north pond (you will be able to drive down there if you wish) and will mow
around the pond. Bring a pole, bait, a
chair and bug spray to make your experience more enjoyable. Of course, all children must be accompanied
by an adult.
We want your day to be enjoyable. Feel free to wander the property and take all
the pictures you want. If you find a
nice, out of the way place, to relax and enjoy the farm, please feel free to do
so. Poke your head into the hay barn and
look for the many (too many) barn cats that call the farm home. Check out the fruit trees, berry bushes and
grapevines in the back yard as well as our new mini-orchard next to the driveway. Whatever
you choose to do, enjoy your farm visit!
Farm Day No Pets Policy – please do not bring your pets to
Farm Day. We currently only have one
dog, our livestock guardian dog, Bella on the farm. Bella has a job to do and although she might
be visiting with Fall Farm Day guests, she is always alert and ready to defend
the alpacas. Bringing other pets to Farm
Days could possibly cause either your animals or ours to be hurt. We
will all have a better experience if all pets are left at home.
Feel free to contact us should you have any questions. Look forward to seeing you on Fall Farm Days!
