The TLC Fiber Farm will be holding a Christmas open house from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 11 and 12. The rescue alpaca farm is located at 40 Horscents Lane, off of Route 220 in Waldoboro.
The farm provides forever homes for alpacas. They shear and process the fiber from their alpacas and sell the yarn, dyed with natural colors at the farm. They also carry hand dyed Merino yarn, and some alpaca gift items.
The farm was established in 2012, and the rescue herd started in 2014. Owners Kevin and MaryBeth Banfield strive to create a loving environment for animals that need forever homes.
“One of our goals is for people to come and enjoy the animals. We are endeavoring to create a retreat for people, as well as our rescued critters,” according to the farm’s website.
Come see the critters in their winter coats, check out alpaca-related last minute gift items, socks, ornaments and more. It is not too late to knit a pair of mittens or a hat, but a skein of yarn and an IOU for a knit item makes a wonderful gift. Gift certificates are available, too.
The public is invited to come enjoy the farm, the animals and the view of Medomak Pond. Sip hot apple cider and browse the shop.
