Are you that farm...

Swoosh & Ortiz getting ready.

As we were setting up our display for the Ovid Strawberry Fesitval, a gentleman came up and asked...Are you that farm... and before he could finished, I jumped in and said "No - we are in Interlaken" as many people in the area confuse us with another alpaca farm not to far away. To my utter amazement (and delight) he said, "Yeah, that's the one I was thinking of - I know exactly where you are!"

To a new farm (only two years old) that was music to our ears - finally someone knows who we are! We are getting somewhere! We ended up having a great conversation about a number of topics that morning. The second best part of the day was he wasn't the only one that day who knew where Owl Ridge Alpacas was, many said they recognized our animals from being in the pastures on the farm, or had driven by our place numerous times.

We haven't quite made it yet (still need to sell and animal or two, three, etc) - but there's some light starting to show at the end of the tunnel, and we are establishing our farm in our community. What a great way to spend a Saturday!
