Warm welcome waiting on farm for Alpaca Days

Ron and Anna Nyberg of Alpacas of the Southwest are inviting the public for a free tour of their ranch this Friday, Saturday and Sunday during National Alpaca Farm Days.

Gov. Jan Brewer recently signed a proclamation also naming Sept. 28-29 as Alpaca Farm Days statewide.

The alpaca open house will be from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. each day.

Alpacas are native to South America and have very soft hair that can be shorn and used to make clothing. Alpaca fiber is as warm as wool but is less heavy and more hypoallergenic.

High Desert Astronomy will have a solar viewer at the ranch Saturday and the Mohave County Gemstoners will be there all three days.

Two alpacas are expected to give birth soon and the newborns, called crias, may be available for viewing.

Alpacas of the Southwest is located at 1108 McCarrell. From Kingman, head 13 miles east on I-40 to the Blake Ranch Road exit. Turn right (south), take the first left turn to go along the frontage road about a mile and a half and turn right at McCarrel. The ranch will be on the left, near the highway.

Be careful using Google maps or other navigation devices, since they may give faulty directions. Call Ron and Anna Nyberg at (702) 338-7806 for more information or visit the website (which contains a correct map) at
