This a working alpaca stud farm. It is not a petting zoo and we do not do 'walking with alpacas'.
The alpacas are not forced to do anything they don't want to do. You will be seeing them up close, chilling out, being alpacas. It is up to them how close!
We haven't had a single visitor so far who hasn't found that enough.
Sadly this is probably not an ideal experience for small children, from past experiences little ones get very bored pretty quickly, especially when asked not to run or shout.
Babies that are carried can come for free.
There is always a lot of poop of various sorts on the farm!
Now that we are into the colder wetter months of the year we have moved our hugely popular alpaca experience out of the weather into our small barn.
Join the female and cria (baby) group as they come into the barn for breakfast. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of over 40 alpacas from very close range. Observe them interacting with each other and going about their lives. This is a very relaxing and calming environment.
We don't force the alpacas to do anything they don't want to do so it is up to them how close you will get!
Depending on the weather we may then follow the alpacas as they return to their paddocks to resume their daily routine of grazing, dozing and pooping.
All the while I will answer all your questions and tell you all about alpacas, where they come from, what they are used for and why people love them.
This relaxing and uplifting experience lasts for about 60 minutes.
We suggest that you check the weather forecast before your experience and bring adequate clothing if it looks like being a bit breezy! We are on top of a hill here so it can be very windy!
This is a working alpaca stud farm and the alpacas are left to be alpacas, as such they do what comes naturally and do not necessarily 'perform' for visitors unless they choose to!
Please note that there are no public toilets on site and dogs are not allowed.
