Celebrating Nature and Sustainability: A Visit to Two Routes Alpaca Farm with Green Llama
by Matt Keasey on Sep 01, 2023
Visiting Two Roots Alpaca Farm was a delightful experience. Stepping onto the farm, I immediately felt a sense of calm and fascination that comes with being surrounded by nature. The green fields, fresh mountain air, and gentle breeze set the perfect stage for a day of exploration and creativity.
My primary goal during this visit was to get to know the farm better and spend time with its charming alpacas. Ruth, the farm's owner, warmly welcomed me and generously shared her wealth of knowledge about these lovely animals. I was impressed by her dedication to the well-being of the alpacas, evident in the well-kept enclosures, carefully planned diets, and meticulous grooming routines.
As I spent time with the alpacas, I couldn't help but be drawn to their calm and endearing personalities. Each alpaca had its own unique charm, and I found myself forming a connection with these graceful creatures I hadn't anticipated. It was a lot of fun and we got some great pictures for Green Llama.
Photographing the alpacas against the farm's scenic backdrop was awesome. Tennessee has such beauty nestled up against the Appalachian mountains. The soft, earthy tones of the alpacas' fleece complemented the lush green surroundings, creating beautiful visuals that I knew would resonate with my audience. I also had the privilege of witnessing heartwarming moments among the alpacas.
Beyond the photography opportunities, my time at Two Roots Alpaca Farm reminded me of the importance of sustainable and ethical farming practices. Ruth's deep love for her alpacas and her commitment to the environment and community were truly inspiring. Her dedication to sustainable farming practices served as a reminder that we can all make a positive impact on the world through our choices.
Leaving the farm, I felt creatively fulfilled and deeply grateful for the chance to connect with nature and kindred spirits like Ruth. Two Roots Alpaca Farm had left a lasting impression, and I knew that the memories and photographs I had captured would carry the spirit of that wonderful place with me for years to come.
