 Part of Boone County’s legacy has always been farming, but much of its land has been lost to development. Linda and Greg Salsbury, however, have created a way to maintain [[farming]] by raising alpacas. Living in the Huey House outside of [[Burlington]],​ the Salsbury’s 52 acres were once part of a 15,500 tract of land farmed by the Hueys in the [[1800]]s. “Greg and I decided to put the farm to work one more time to preserve the farming community that existed when we were children,​” Linda explained. “Not only do we raise public awareness of farming and the history of the Huey House, but we introduce people to the adventure of raising a new type of livestock. Last year we had about 400 people come to the farm in September during National Alpaca Weekend. We gave them a taste of farming, provided hay rides, and showed them these unique animals, their fleece, and the end product made from the fiber.” Part of Boone County’s legacy has always been farming, but much of its land has been lost to development.
