We started alpaca walking with the public with our gentle boys in June 2018. Since then, many groups have enjoyed the experience, including a hen party of 20, a WI group of 14, an 18th birthday treat etc. Groups also visit us with wheelchairs to enjoy time with the alpacas.
NB Please book a day/time with us in advance of coming along to ensure you are not disappointed. You can buy a walking voucher gift on this site if you go to SHOP and fill in the details. If you would like to walk the alpacas, you can just email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (07483 229636) to book a time and date and pay on the day by cash or card.
The alpaca experience lasts around 2 hours or so and includes:
A talk about alpacas, their history etc.
A visit to see our alpacas and feed them; help to catch alpacas for haltering.
A walk around our land with an alpaca, up to 8 alpacas at a time.
Tea/coffee/cold drinks and cakes to finish.
Wear sensible shoes with enclosed toes as alpacas have sharp nails.
Cost: £15 per person
To get to our farm, go along Chestnut Drive, Taunton, and take the road to Stoke St Mary; on entering the village, after about 2 miles, continue past the pub (keep on right hand side) and up the hill towards the church. The road takes a 90 degree turn to the left, continue on, past all the bungalows and out of the village. The entrance to the farm is the first field gate on the right, after around 500 metres after the last house of the village itself. If coming from A358, take turning to Stoke St Mary, near speed trap at Henlade. After a mile of wiggly roads you will see the sign for village; we are in the first field gate on the a left from there, around 300 metres. We are on the opposite side of the road to The White House.
