Here comes another sugarhouse for real maple syrup, but this one has something very different from all the rest: alpacas.

While the Keyes Family at Trout Brook Sugarhouse is hard making the season's maple syrup, their corral of alpacas out back draws the most attention! Careful not to get too close when you're feeding them, though. Like llamas, alpacas sometimes sneeze and spit!

You'll find the sugarhouse is open to the public to see the process of boiling down the sap this weekend, March 29-30, with a pancake breakfast both days at the Mendon Fire House. The sugarhouse is also open weekends in April. Call ahead!
