Down on the Farm

 
Mary Baxter of Pohopoco Creek Alpacas stands near her herd on Merwinesburg Road in Effort. Mary, who recently opened her business in the West End, visited the West End Rotary Club to talk about the history, care and uses of alpacas and their amazing fleece. While she couldn’t bring the animals to the Western Pocono Community Library, she did bring samples of alpaca products. Thanks to Jim Mannello for providing the speaker and the photo.
