Located just 10 minutes north of Moscow, Idaho, we are nestled in the rolling hills of the Palouse.
"Discovered in 1805 by Lewis and Clark, the Palouse is a geologic wonder unlike any other area. Mesmerizing beauty and a sweeping landscape of rolling hills and plateaus greet visitors to this distinctive region north of the Snake River in Southeast Washington and North Central Idaho. This is the place simply to drive leisurely along and gently curving highways, sprinkled with antique shops and wineries, with easy access to hiking and biking and above all, photography. If you ever needed to stop the world and relax, this is the place for it."
Grazing Hills Fiber Festival will be held at the Grazing Hills Alpaca Ranch in Viola, Idaho.
A family owned and operated alpaca farm located in Viola, Idaho, Grazing Hills is settled in the rolling hills of the Palouse. Katie DeWinkle, her entourage of 6 daughters and her easy-going husband, Cory, manage and run their farm, the Country Store and their B&B. They currently raise over 50 huacaya alpacas, sheep, ducks, chickens, cows, and a few horses. Grazing Hills Alpacas began in 1993, when Katie was just 6. She helped train, show, and run the farm in the middle of being a homeschooled entrepreneur.
Now, as a 3rd generation alpaca farmer and owner, Katie is passionate about raising awareness to the fiber arts, and the endless possibilities of the fiber industry. Not just as it relates to alpacas.... but how important it is to train up the next generation of fiber producers.
