My first impression was WOW this is one clean farm. And it is definitely that - VERY clean! The alpacas are so beautiful and such a wide range of colors. I think the owners, Penny and Paul are two really awesome people. I am so excited to find an alpaca farm so close to where I live (about 20 - 30 minutes from my house, depending upon weather and traffic.
Sun Gate Alpaca Farm has a very nice shop where one can get all kinds of things made from Alpaca fiber, including incredibly luxurious yarn. They skirt their fleeces, and then process some fiber into roving; send some to a mill for yarn; and provide some to a local coop. I am excited to be able to buy and work with local roving! Hopefully I will be able to provide some pictures of new yarns soon - made from this incredible roving.

If you have questions, please take a moment and call or email. Their fibers are so luxurious. I will update soon with photos too. (Forgot to take my camera with me, so I will definitely take photos on my next trip!)
Have you been to a local fiber farm -- wool, alpaca, angora??? What was your impression?
