Small Acreage Tour - Compass Rose Alpaca Farm
Come see how to raise alpacas, reduce mud, and improve pastures while implementing sound stewardship practices! Compass Rose Alpaca Farm was recognized by WSU Clark County Extension's Small Acreage Program as a Model Property in 2005 for great efforts made by the landowners to control stormwater, reduce mud, manage pastures, eliminate chemical inputs and implement best management practices that improve operations while protecting water quality and natural resources. The landowners implemented practices they learned in the Small Acreage Program's Living On the Land class to address issues of stormwater management, wildlife habitat, pasture management, and manure composting.
This tour will cover a wide range of small farm and animal management topics such as footing materials, grazing practices, manure management, fencing, drainage solutions and much more. Come learn about how the landowners achieved recognition as a Model Property and how best management practices have improved their property and protected natural resources, while saving time and money.
Bring your family & friends and questions you have about your property. Please dress appropriately for the weather, bring a water bottle and wear sturdy boots as we'll be in the field.
This tour is put on by the Small Acreage Program which is made possible by joint sponsorship from WSU Clark County Extension and Clark County Environmental Services Clean Water Program.
