REASONS TO SUPPORT A CSA

Here are some of the reasons you might consider supporting a CSA fiber farm:

  • Brand new locally grown yarns delivered to your doorstep or come by the farm for pickup while visiting with the alpacas.
  • You get to support a small fiber farm
  • It’s fun to get info about the animals that are supplying your yarn
  • A better chance to know that your yarn is coming from an ethical source that treats its animals well
  • Usually you’ll get good prices on what are considered luxury yarns
  • With a purchase of a FULL share, you get a FREE farm tour for 2 people (valued at $30). 
  • With a purchase of a HALF share, you get a Complimentary farm tour for 1 person (valued at $20)
  • Brand new locally grown yarn delivered to your doorstep or come by the farm for pickup while visiting with the alpacas. (did I say that already?!)

COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

The Double 8 Alpaca Ranch Community Supported Agriculture program is a way for fiber enthusiats or craft-minded persons to get locally grown and processed alpaca fleece and yarn for which to make their products while helping the farmer/producer defray the up front costs to process our annual fleece harvest. 100% of yarn sales go back into the farm to feed and care for our beautiful herd of alpacas.
