Farm Visits

Alpaca Walks and Workshops

We enjoy welcoming guests to our farm and share our love for these beautiful animals. All visits are private and by appointment. This allows us to customize the visits to our guests ideas. We had extensive picnics where the alpacas come and visit the guests, a marriage proposal, photo shoots for Christmas cards and  hope there will many more different exciting ideas coming our way.

We offer the following options but are very flexible and happy to change things around.

Walk and Talk

We visit the alpacas in the pasture, hand feed them, get acquainted and talk about alpacas.  Then we take some of them on a leash for a walk down the country lane. The Walk and Talk takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hour.

Add-Ons

The following activities are designed as add-ons to the Walk and Talk and must be booked separately and will be part of your visit.

Wet Felting Workshop

We create “dryer balls” or “cat-toys” using warm soapy water and cold water to felt the alpaca fibre. The balls are yours to take home!

Needle Felting Workshop

We create a picture using sharp needles to felt alpaca and sheep fibre onto a small canvas. The picture is yours to take home!

Alpaca Training Session

We train our alpacas to trust us and walk on a leash long before they can join us on a walk. The training session is a great way to connect with an alpaca and get more hands-on experience.  You step into the training pen with us and work with an alpaca yourself.

We are working on designing full, stand alone workshops and hopefully will be able to offer them soon.
