Fast forward to today where I'm the resident celebrity at WoodsEdge Farm. My name is Larry - Larry the Llama - nice to meet you! My owners, Brent & Amy adopted me from a farm in upstate New York and I’ve been here ever since.
In order to 'earn my keep', I was asked to start this blog (I think Amy got tired of shushing away the paparazzi, returning phone calls and answering emails from my followers). So to all my fans, this is your opportunity to get it straight from the llama's mouth. You wanted to know more about my life and what's happening at WoodsEdge Farm, so I'm happy to give you some insider 411 about what goes on around here as well as what happens beyond my pasture fence.
I have lots of comrades in the Macho Barn, but I spend most of my time with my BFF, Blue, he's a llama too (who said Llamas can't rhyme). I’m normally hanging out in the pasture beside my crimson red barn, but if you don’t see me – just call my name ‘Laaarrrrryyyy’ and I’ll come running (you should first get your cell phone camera ready – you’ll see why). I love visitors, especially if they bring me mouth-watering alfalfa morsels from the Farm Store. I also adore taking pictures with my admirers - I mean, who wouldn't want a selfie with me?
Over the years, WoodsEdge has hosted many agri-tourism events as well as weddings. Being that I’m the social butterfly of the farm (don’t ask any of the llama ladies – they will say that they’re the cat’s meow around here), these soirées and get-togethers have opened up a whole new world for both me and the attendees! I get some much needed attention and they get to learn about me & what goes on here at WoodsEdge Farm.
Even though I am super handsome (look out GQ here I come) I don't grow the typical super soft fleece that WoodsEdge Farm is known for, but hey I still contribute - my fiber is used in our all natural rugs. Here at WoodsEdge we produce everything from heirloom home furnishings to the warmest garments ever. When you come visit me, make sure you check out our Farm Store (open Saturday and Sunday, 10am - 4pm for the month of January).
Brent and Amy don't want me working too hard (it's a full time job growing fiber, socializing with visitors and pitching my own reality series), so, I will be posting once a month. Thanks for taking the time to read about me. I can't wait to share my escapades and insight in my upcoming Letters from Larry blog. I would love it if you would become involved in my blog. Please send questions to Amy@WoodsEdgeEvents.com (she's my personal assistant) or visit our WoodsEdge Farm and WoodsEdge Wedddings & Events pages on Facebook.
Until next time.
