Meet some wild and woolly friends

An alpaca

AUGUSTA, Mich. (WOOD) There’s a unique destination in West Michigan where you can get up close and personal with some wild and woolly friendly. Pronking Acres Alpaca Farm was started by Penelope and Frank Brooks. They got out of the business world and started to raise alpacas in their farm in Augusta.

Alpacas are easy to raise, and their fiber is used to make yarn that can be used to make rugs, blankets, hats, scarves, and other products.

Bring the family to see some alpacas at National Alpaca Farm Days. It’s from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 27 and 28 at Pronking Acres Alpaca Farm. The open house style event is free! They’re located on M-89 in Augusta. For more information, call (269) 430-3463 or visit their website.
