Fall Blessings

This fall brought blessings to the farm in the form of 4 alpaca cria and 4 merino lambs. The new herd and flock members include 2 male cria - Miracoli, Woodford Reserve and 2 female cria - Melony and Autumn Wind. The lambs include twin rams (unnamed), a black and white female name Moonbeam and another moorit ewe name Ruth after RBG.

Looking forward to how these kids grow up.

Violet Hill Farm is a small boutique farm located in Lexington, Kentucky. This area is a great environment for the farm, located in heart of fiber artisan country. Additionally, this is blue grass country, known for its pastures which improve bone health. I have already seen the contributions to fiber improvement.

The farm is my dream come true - a home in the country , surrounded by wonderful, rich animals and a chance to explore what the earth can create. My goal is to build a farm that raises animals for fiber and soil amendment (manure), hosts honey bee hives for healthy polination and honey, and raises specialty fruit and flowers. I also hope to share this love with others through the bounty of my farm,location, and education. I host visitors of all ages, especially children and young people. At my farm, you be exposed and touch livestock and poultry up close. You can see where eggs come from, how yarn is made and what happens when manure is composted.

I believe alpacas are for everyone - the simple pet for a rural home, a browser to help keep the blackberries in check, a fiber animal for the hobby spinner and an investment for breeders. I have animals that may serve each niche and invite you to visit my farm to learn more about this wonderful animal, it's valuable fiber and the garden benefits as well! I hope you will consider my farm a place to visit.

Plan a visit to meet our menagerie of cats, alpacas, and fiber sheep. The alpacas love treats and the sheep are always curious. Come introduce your family to the farm and allow me to share my knowledge of gardening, farming, animal husbandry and the agricultural life. This farm is a Climate Smart Wool Producer, a member of Kentucky Proud and practices good soil management.
