Saturday and Sunday, Frosty Ridge Alpacas is hoping the people of the Northland will join them for National Alpaca Farm Days. It’s just two miles west of Midway Road in Duluth you can experience the fun, fleece, and fun for yourself from September 24th and 25th.

Loni Blumerich and her husband own the farm. They fell in love with alpacas at show in Wisconsin. Ever since, they’ve dedicated there time to raising and breeding these unique animals.

“This our way of promoting alpacas. They’re rare in the United States and rare in the world. They aren’t many in the northern country,” Loni tell us. She says they love to teach people about alpacas.

Some of the alpacas in their herd are prize winning. They’ve spent about 8 years breeding them to have top quality genetics.

“It’s like I have a classroom of kids, 30 different kids, and they’re all different,” Loni tells us.

Alpacas are prized for their wool. It’s even warmer than sheep’s wool. So during Alpaca Days, you can check out their gear.
