So far it’s just a list of websites- there are not a lot of well reviewed publications about raising alpacas unless you can shell out some serious dough. So for right now, I’ll cruise the web and dream of this, this,this and maybe also this.
This list will be updated as I discover more of the information that is available.
This is the official website for Gillis Gardens, LLC.
Gillis Gardens is a farm, run by myself and my wonderful husband. We believe in biodiversity, organic growing methods and doing things ourselves. I knit, crochet, make jewelry and sew. MrGillis builds, doing everything from our plumbing to our mechanical to our renovations. We are both active members of our little community. We both take care of the plants and animals. He weeds, I harvest. He spreads manure, I plant.
We raise multiple breeds of chickens for eggs and meat. We have a herd of Alpacas that we shear every year for their beautiful fiber, which we then have milled into ultra luxurious yarn. We make our own maple syrup, preserves and pickles. We raise bees for honey and herbs for medicine. We also raise pigs for meat and fun.
We are the parents of two young children, and consider that our most important job.
