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!
