Thanks to day program participant Andrew McElraevy, his mother Lisa McElraevy, and her domestic partner Peter Frutkoff, the Red Barn Farm and their adorable alpacas joined Life Options at a recent virtual class.

Ashley Yakaboski of the Red Barn Farm, talked with the group over Zoom and provided a tour of the farm, located in Baiting Hollow, Long Island and introduced the spellbound audience to the alpacas. Participants and guests enjoyed the tour and learning new information about Alpacas. Did you know that alpacas are part of the camelid family and were domesticated by the Incas more than 6,000 years ago?

Anyone interested in getting a virtual tour of the farm and learning more about the alpacas can check their website or email them at

The CP Nassau participants enjoyed this unique experience and say thanks to all who made it possible!
