Kaw Valley Alpacas will participate in the fifth annual National Alpaca Farm Days on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24 and 25.
Macel and Bruce Koerth, owners of Kaw Valley Alpacas, invite visitors to their farm Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to see the alpacas as well as alpaca fleece, yarn, and finished goods.
Some 37 alpacas live at Kaw Valley Alpacas; the Koerths own 31 alpacas and board six more for another owner. Six crias, which are baby alpacas, are expected by early November.
Kaw Valley Alpacas is located at 22925 Hemphill Road, just off U.S. Highway 24-40 between Lawrence and Tonganoxie. Visitors can arrange to tour the farm at other times by calling ahead at (913) 845-2634.
