They are the sixth genera-tion to farm raising alpacassince 2005. Their farmis currently home to 20alpacas and Red, the catand located in NorthernNew York close to Route81. They take great pride inthe care of our animals andwelcome the opportunityto educate any who wouldlike to know more aboutthese curious, gentle,intelligent and entertain-ing creatures. After be-ing away from the NorthCountry for 34 years livingthe last 30 in central NJthey had a desire to returnto our roots. All of thehustle and bustle seemedto lose its appeal espe-cially after Sept. 11, 2001,Daryl, actually watchedthe second plane hit thetower from his Jersey Cityoffice on that fateful day.Short from saying, “We’reout of here!”. They startedto develop a plan so thatwe could return to upstateNY and grow the farm thatGail grew up on. Afterreading an article about analpaca farm near us in NewJersey, they visited Tuccillofarm and soon becameinvolved learning all aboutthe care and nurturing of these magnificent crea-tures. They cleaned thepoop piles, learned to giveshots, and watched withawe as their first cria wasborn. They were in loveand ready to start our ownfarm. They bought theirfoundation herd from thisfarm and brought themto New York. They havelearned a lot and are excit-ed to share our knowledgewith other future alpacafarms as we develop thisfarm. Visitors are warmlywelcomed to their farmand offer tours and a farmstore. They now host a lo-cal 4H club, “Fiber of Life”and have an annual openhouse complete with icecream eating contest.

Stay-cation is a buzzwordthat has become moreprevalent with today’seconomy! However, frommy perspective that isnot necessarily a nega-tive thing since we live inone of the most beauti-ful, scenic, and historicareas!If you were planning todrive for your vacation,you felt it at the pump.If you were planning tofly, you most certainlyfelt it either in air faresor reduced schedules.With the ever growinghigh prices of gas (andeverything it effects),people are opting to findthings to do in their ownhometowns. But the truestay-cation is more thanthat. It means becominga tourist in or near yourown home. However,experts warn that withtoday’s technology yourun the risk of never trulygetting away from theoffice if you are still dailychecking email at homeand carrying your Smart-phone.The Greater WatertownNorth Country Chamberof Commerce has beencollaborating with the ar-eas local tourism counciland attractions to learneven more about thehidden treasures in ourown backyard! As a localbusiness here are sometips to attract the localsto your business:Work with your keyhotels. Hotels that focuson business travel duringthe week often look forways to fill rooms overthe weekend. Partnerwith them to create an“Experience Your CityLike a Tourist” packagewhich would include yourshopping and diningincentives.Partner with your attrac-tions to include tickets.Some attractions will runoff-season promotionswhere they will offer dis-counted tickets to locals.Promote one another!When you develop apackage, tie in specificmerchants who will offera complimentary cocktailor dessert with the pur-chase of an entrée.Include luxury items suchas a personal shopperand limo service to andfrom the hotel.Remember, we all need abreak from time to time,whether we get to take atrip and an actual vaca-tion or not, but findingthat relaxation and restwe need every day! If you need some ideas,stop by the Chamber of Commerce and we canhelp plan your STA-Vaca-tion!Warmest Regards,Lynn M. PietroskiPresident & CEO
