What you'll do
Spend 1-2 hours on our beautiful 2-acre family farm, where we raise alpacas for fiber, grow veggies and fruits for our family, and make delicious gourmet pizza. Alpacas are gentle and shy creatures, each with their own, unique personality. We will start the experience telling you about the alpacas and their care. You will learn about the steps involved in processing their wool. Then you will have the opportunity to feed them, and we will take them for a walk around our property as you enjoy the beautiful scenery of the surrounding countryside. We will end the evening by dining on some delicious, fresh-made pizza. This will be an interactive, chef-to-table experience where you will watch the chef throw the dough, assemble all ingredients, and bake the pizza right in front of you. This would be an ideal experience for a date night, a family, ladies night, or for a small group adventure.

I love alpacas! We have spent the last couple of years raising alpacas on our family farm and will share with you what it takes to care for them as well as the steps involved in processing their fiber. My co-host is a trained chef with almost 20 years in the food service industry. He has a Bachelors Degree in Culinary Nutrition and has worked in some of the top restaurants in the country. He has appeared on the Food Network and has worked with several celebrity and famous chefs during his tenure. He is passionate about Neapolitan style pizzas and we love to bring people together over food. We are particularly interested in local food and try to bring as much locally grown and organic ingredients to the table as possible.
Where you'll be
This experience will be outdoors on our ranch in the Texas countryside surrounding Austin. We will walk the land and show you the unique aspects of our space, including the food forest currently underway. Then you will dine on our outdoor stage made from locally reclaimed materials and built by the poet who previously lived here.
