Despite bubble burst, alpaca farmers do it for the love

You've probably heard the old adage that if something looks too good to be true, it probably is. That was the case in a business deal that led to a bubble that hurt thousands of families, including some here in Western New York. It was a deal that involved, of all things, alpacas.

You can see the alpacas for yourself at the Lang's Thistle Creek Alpaca Farm in Elma this weekend. An open house is being held at the farm at 1091 Ostrander Road Saturday and Sunday.
