Joe is owner and operator of Maxwell’s Woodworking & Design (www.maxwellwoodworking.com) specializing in handcrafting 18th century reproduction furniture. He is lucky enough to have his shop located on the farm so he can get a dose of alpaca love whenever he wants. He has been working with customers for over 25 years and recognizes the importance of providing support before, during and after a sale. He carries this awareness over to the alpaca business and is happy to help support and educate clients and the general public about alpacas and their care. He enjoys talking to people and has a way of putting them at ease that is amazing.
I grew up on the farm helping with the small dairy and field work. I am very excited to be able to raise alpacas on the family farm. As a Physical Therapist, most days find me away from the farm but I can usually fit in either the morning or evening “clean up” and feeding. I look forward to weekends when I get double duty. In addition to therapy and raising alpacas I squeeze in time to paint and occasionally teach a class (www.maxwellartstudio.com). I love showing off our alpacas and answering questions for those who are interested in raising alpacas to those who are interested in the product we get from the fleece, to the just plain curious.
We find it invaluable to have the support of our mentoring farms as we continue to grow and our expectation is to provide this kind of assistance to our clients.
Looking forward to hearing from you!!
