PA-WaGN Presents: The Value Added Aspects of Alpacas

August 17, 2015
10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Join PA-WAgN as we tour Golden Glen Alpacas with farmer and 2015 Specialty Mentor Terri Kinka and learn how she has added value to her farm through alpaca fiber, education, and breeding stock.


August 17, 2015, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Alpacas are certainly entertaining but have you considered their potential to add value to your farm? Terri will introduce a variety of value-added products using alpaca fiber as we tour her newly constructed facility.  She will lead discussions of fiber processing, market, and resources and describe how on-farm educational events are attracting new customers.

Participants will discover the unique needs of alpacas for optimal health, comfort, and safety.

This event was organized in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Women’s Agricultural Network at Penn State with funds by USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture Grant #2012-49400-19602.
