    The farm visit was well organized and geared toward families. We were greeted warmly and invited to interact with the animals, as well as feed them, which my daughter loved. We were given information about the very lovely knitted items in the studio shop. The wide range Beautiful materials used was impressive. The best part was the carding and felting tent, where my children got to make their own needle felting projects under very helpful guidance. They had a great time and were very engaged! Thank you for inviting us to your farm!

    We had an amazing time!! Two of us city people made the trek out to Linda’s farm today and it was wonderful. It’s about 2 hours (with construction) From Edmonton to the farm and we were a bit late but they still accommodated us. We were able to feed the gorgeous alpacas, meet the cute puppers, learn about alpacas, and visit and purchase some goodies from the small shop they have on site. Highly recommend this trip!

    Although we arrived an hour after our booked time, the owners graciously came out to host us anyway. They were also very diligent in following co-vid protocols. We learned a lot about alpacas and got to feed them. They provided lots of written information on both the alpacas and the use and care of the fibre products. The shop was well-stocked. Very pleasant hosts.
