Brier Run Alpacas/Edy's Mills Fine Fibres- Lambton County
(Left to right: Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Maria Van Bommel; Heather Blanchard; Norris McAuslan)
In Lambton County, Brier Run Alpacas and Edy's Mills Fine Fibres have created a new measure of productivity on the farm - the number of socks per acre. This value-added partnership raises alpacas, harvests their fibre and turns it into a wide range of consumer products - from cones and skeins of fibre to batting and felt to finished consumer goods. Teamwork means that Norris McAuslan earns a living from his alpaca operation and Heather Blanchard maximizes her investment in mill equipment by using it every day.
