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.
1. Meet and greet the alpacas. (Approximately 60 minutes). Monday to Friday at 1030hrs. Join us at feeding time and help feed the alpacas. Meet the whole herd, the female group together with this summers babies, the boys including the stud males and spend time amongst the various groups. We will tell you all about them and answer any questions that you may have. For two people - £30. A group of up to 5 people - £50*. (For larger groups please contact us). This experience is held in the concrete farmyard and as such is suitable for wheelchair users.
2. Alpaca Safari. (Approximately 90 minutes). Join us at feeding time to feed the alpacas as per the 'Meet and Greet' and then return with the alpacas to their pasture where we will walk amongst the herd as they get back to their business of grazing (they do a lot of this!). More time to take photographs, ask questions and interact with the alpacas. For two people - £50. A group of up to 5 people - £75*. (for larger groups please contact us). Our pasture land is on uneven ground and as such the Safari is not suitable for wheelchair users or people who have difficulty walking.
