We were delighted to have Cyndi Merritt of Merritt Resources visit us recently and put together a video spot to promote Fox Wire Farm Alpacas to folks in and around the Richmond area who are looking for something fun to do. John was in his element showing her around and introducing her to the wonders of alpaca and our amazing farm! If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s definitely a must-view!
