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, a 16th birthday treat and others.
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 on this site if you go to SHOP and fill in the details.
The 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 6 alpacas at a time.
Tea and homemade cakes to finish.
Please note that we will not increase our £15 per person as we first planned to do this spring.
The talk, visit to see the babies, walk around the paddocks with an alpaca and tea and cakes to finish - £15 per person, c.2 hours or so.
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 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. 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 first field gate on the a left from there.
