Alpaca Experiences

Why not join us and the alpacas at Budleigh House Farm for one of our 'Alpaca Experiences'? Alpacas are intelligent, inquisitive, non-aggressive and very silly animals and as such they can be quite entertaining. 

Our alpacas are generally very friendly, but, like humans, they all have different personalities and some quite naturally are friendlier than others. If you want to spend some time with these beautiful creatures and learn about them contact Mark and book yourself on one of our experiences.

We can tailor experiences to meet your needs and desires so if you don't see an experience that fits what you are looking for let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
How about giving an Alpaca Experience as a present for a friend or relative?

"We all throughly enjoyed our 2 hour ‘Alpaca experience’..!! Our group of 5 went as part of a 21st birthday present.
Mark & Sue were great hosts, informative, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about Alpaca’s and their own fantastic herd..
We were able to spend ‘close up and hands on’ time with; the girls, the boys, and the stud males..
A fantastic experience, in a wonderful location, even the weather was kind..!!
We will definitely return later in the year to see the young and new arrivals..
Thank you once again."  S E, (Taunton) January 2019
