Hello and welcome to Fair Winds Llama Ranch. We have had a lot of changes since last year. We've more than doubled our herd of animals by adding a small breeding herd of alpacas. I have a little fear of the shearing season with so many animals needing haircuts. However, with the addition of so many animals, we are being a lot more aggressive at processing their fur. We should have some beautiful yarns and roving available for the spinners and knitters out there.
As you can tell from the picture above, I used to be a helicopter pilot. When the picture was taken, I was deployed with the Montana Army National Guard to Afghanistan as a CH-47D maintenance pilot. I am at the end of my military career, having also put in 11 years on active duty as a Marine Corps helicopter pilot followed by 10 years in the inactive reserves. I also work as a performance auditor for the Montana Legislative Audit Division.
I look forward to seeing you at our Helena Farmer's Market booth this year. Come by and get to know us and what we do. We love talking about the animals and all the exciting goings-on.
