Biddeford resident Marc Worrell and his children, Sabastian, 10, Bella, 6 and Emma, 8. The family, along with Worrell’s wife, Melissa, run East Coast Alpacas at their home on 69 Mountain Road in Biddeford. An open house, to coincide with Alpaca Open Farm Days, a national effort, will be held 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 and 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.
