Three Oaks Farm Alpacas
Pam’s grandparents, Dan and Mary Ensor, bought the family farm in 1949. Mary was a teacher and Dan grew corn and other vegetables as well as raised beef cattle. Pam and her husband Ken purchased the land in 2013. From the barn square you can see the original main house which dates back to the late 1800’s (yellow in color) in the distance as well as the metal pole barn built by Pam’s Grandfather. Corn, soybean, hay, hops and more are currently grown on the farm. Pam and Ken have turned the farm into an agricultural education destination for young and old mixing teaching and farming in line with Pam’s grandparent’s passions. School field trips, specialized Alpaca Encounters and private farm tours all focus on teaching farm to table and alpaca/sheep to sweater. Along with a herd of alpaca, the farm also has sheep, horses, donkeys, chickens, goats, a cow and their beloved livestock guardian dog to name a few. A big Easter event in the Spring and a Halloween event in the fall are great times to enjoy the farm with the children. These events have a craft, music, as well as egg hunts or trick or treating. They also have an adult event in the fall- ALPACAPALOOZA! Classes such as felting and paint nights are also offered from time to time. To sign up for a private farm tour, offered Monday through Friday, or another event, go to threeoaksfarmalpacas.com and click on the events tab. The private farm tours are fun, educational and interactive for all ages. Evening tours can be scheduled by calling Pam. You can sign up and pay right online! (The farm is not open to the public other than by signing up for the scheduled events). A farm store is located in the barn offering high end alpaca apparel, yarn, stuffed animals and other alpaca products and can be opened for shopping by appointment.
