Alpaca Picnic
Meet and Greet Sessions
Would you like the opportunity to meet, mingle and feed our fluffy, friendly alpacas? 
Look no further than our Meet and Greet sessions.
A wonderful  experience spending 30minutes in the paddock with our girls (and occasionally babies), gazing into their deep, hypnotic eyes, marvelling at their long eyelashes, and being hounded for the food that you get to take in to feed them with!
They are amazingly calm and gentle, love small children and will give you some magical memories to capture in photos.
Picnic
Alpaca Picnics
Pacca Picnics!!
We offer you the opportunity to book a picnic experience with our alpacas.
This will allow you and your immediate family exclusive use of our picnic bench, or bring a rug to throw on the grass, in the paddock with the alpacas all around you.
There are hand washing facilities in the paddock and hand sanitiser on the table.
One hour slots (or multiples of) at £25 to include alpaca food, are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, you just need to bring your picnic.
Please call 07980 587562 to book.
Alpaca Walk
Alpaca/Llama Trekking
Walking with Alpacas - are you sure? 

Absolutely! These are naturally curious animals and given the opportunity to get out and about they love to nibble at new and interesting greenery (non-poisonous obviously), see new places and enjoy some different terrain. They're not that much different to us and like a break from the norm.

Illustrated Talks, Visits and Demonstrations
Illustrated Talks 
We woulld like to invite you to take advantage of our setting, the glorious alpacas and our knowledge by offering illustrated talks. They can be adapted for all groups from Brownies and Cubs, the WI and Inner Wheel to Young Farmers. Our talks cover all aspects of the alpaca from their ancient origins in South America to their place on the modern farm and as fleece producers. 
Our talks are fully illustrated with slides of our own alpacas, and we have many stories to tell of their quirky personalities and the ups and downs of living and working with these delightful and sometimes infuriating creatures.
We can include a demonstration of felting techniques.
Examples of raw and prepared fleece, knitted/crocheted and felted goods and yarn will be on display and available to purchase. 
Talks include refreshments. 
We are also available to come to your meeting. We are able to bring laptop, projecter, screen and extension cable plus examples of our fleece products.

Visits
We can bring our alpacas and llamas to schools, colleges, residential and nursing homes to provide an different experience for pupils, residents and staff. Not only are they entertaining but feeding and stroking them will provide a talking point to encourage even the quietest individual to open up and engage in social activity.
We can also bring along a variety of products from raw and prepared fleece and yarn to knitted and felted items to add a sensory dimension to the experience.
We are fully equiped with hurdles so we are able to create a meet and greet pen at your location (A patch of grass is preferred but not mandatory). We will clear up and remove any "alpaca beans" deposited during the visit - unless of course you would like to keep it for the garden, it is a most excellent soil conditioner!!

Educational Days Out
School groups are welcome for meet, greet and feed sessions, informative talk and a fibre felting session.
Please allow approximately 90mins.
