What you'll do
The Alpaca Experience runs about 1 hour. You will meet our Alpacas & Llama, learn about their diet, their habits, and how herd animals relate to one another. You will also learn about our herd specifically, including their unique personalities, and where they came from! Many of our animals are rescues and have gone come into the loving environment at the Decatur Alpaca Cottage where they feel safe and cared for. We welcome questions and are pleased to offer a rare opportunity for you to interact with these beautiful, gentle creatures in close proximity. Photos are encouraged and SO much fun! You'll also have an opportunity to feed a special treats that I call 'Alpaca-pizza' to the herd! Please know that although we work hard to keep our farm and field impeccably clean, be aware that 'poop happens' so we encourage you to wear casual shoes. Note: the Alpaca Experience is also available for our Airbnb guests who book a stay at the Decatur Alpaca Cottage!

I am Marykay, owner and primary farm hand at the Decatur Alpaca Cottage. We are situated on a 1 & 1/2 acre little Legacy Farm that features a herd of rescue Alpacas, our miniature Chilean Llama, and a color flock of friendly chickens, all living together in harmony. Our herd handling is based on trust and kindness. I am passionate about the well-being of our animals and believe experiential learning is so important! I am also involved in rescue fundraising efforts so 10% of your Experience cost will benefit Southeast Llama Rescue efforts! Thank you for your support!

Where you'll be
We will conduct our tour & Alpaca Experience at the urban farm of the Decatur Alpaca Cottage (our deluxe guest cottage, available on Airbnb.) We are situated on a privately owned little Legacy farm featuring expansive Gardens, Chickens, Alpacas, and Llama. Our farm is also a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat & Bird Friendly Habitat, because in addition to the beauty of our gardens, we care for all creatures great & small!
Keep these in mind
Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 10 guests ages 2 and up can attend.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
As with any animal encounter, there is an inherent risk, albeit very small. Prior to entering the field, we will review the basics of interacting with the alpacas and the rules detailed here.
