I am excited about this next event as I have never seen an Alpaca get sheared. On June 4th it is Alpaca Shearing Day at Apple Hill Farms. Alpacas grow 4″ of fiber a year and must be sheared once a year. So come and see the farm, get a ticket and watch the shearing of the alpacas. Tickets are $17.00 ages 11- adult, $12.00 ages 4-10, and $3.00 for 3 and younger. Take a tour on the farm and enjoy a day outside in the mountains.
Since the Mexican Restaurant burned in Banner Elk, I have ventured out to Roan Mountain and found a wonderful Mexican and Seafood Restaurant. The food is wonderful. In the Spring when it warms up, I look forward to enjoying eating outside.
I have decided I am going to try new restaurants in the area so I can let you know some places to eat when you go to the surrounding areas. This will be fun for me, as I love good food! I hope to be able to give you an honest opinion of the establishment. Stay tuned as I travel to the unknown spots… I may just find the perfect little place to dine…
