Intern farm experience: Alpacas & animal husbandry

At WVC we have a herd of alpacas and a flock of chickens which you’ll be working with on a regular basis. This includes daily feeding as well as pasture maintenance.

We love our alpacas. They all have names and unique personalities. Oh and have you ever seen a baby alpaca? They’re called crias and they’re super cute. We’ve recently had a baby boom and currently have four crias in our herd. We are hoping for more crias in 2020!

Our chickens are also an important part of our farm. We sell eggs in our Farm Store and at the local farmers market. As an intern you’ll be collecting and processing eggs as well as cleaning out the chicken coop.

Before she became an intern at White Violet Center, Sadie Lang had never even seen an alpaca Read about Sadie’s intern farm experience.
