Quick fact: Members of the camel family, alpacas were domesticated thousands of years ago as fiber-producing animals. Alpaca fleece ranges in color from white to shades of fawn and brown to grays and black (the only commercial, natural fiber that truly is black).

Barn Owl

Quick fact: Take a peek in the loft as you enter the barn at Riverbanks Farm to see barn owls roosting overhead. Barn owls are one of the most widespread of all animal species. Like most owls, they are active at night.

Nubian Goat

Quick fact: The Farm’s animal contact ring is home to a friendly group of Nubian goats. Females are called nannies or does; males are referred to as bucks; and young are called kids.
