It's not often that we stumble across alpaca products in the clothing stores we find in our local malls or big box stores. I can remember the first time I found 'alpaca' listed on a garment tag. It was 20 years ago, in a tiny specialty shop in Galway, Ireland. I didn't know what 'alpaca' was, but one thing I knew for sure was that my skin liked it a whole lot better than the wool sweaters that graced every shop window across the tiny country. (I bought lots of those sweaters, too!)
What does it mean to be a destination location? When vacationers began calling the farm to ‘book a tour’ and wondered ‘how much' we ‘charged for a tour,’ we were confused. But, we soon noticed something interesting: The visitors we were receiving shared something in common. They were ‘making a day’ of their visit.
