What you'll do

Next, Introduction to Llama/Alpaca 101 and why these soft and fluffy critters are the new Unicorn of animals. We will cover basic safety rules and answer any questions before we begin our trek.

I am a passionate educator and committed steward to the land, our animals call home. I have been raising and rescuing camelids for over ten years, rehabilitating them to be pets , pasture companions and 4H Youth Development project animals. Our animals are hand raised with care and respect. Allowed plenty of pasture to enjoy, room to run and animal friends to play with.

I enjoy teaching people about camelids and their many amazing qualities. They are more than just a fiber and/or pack animal, they are docile and personable companions that will melt your heart at your first meeting.

Llama llama alpaca!! My favorite animals. I loved walking with them. It’s not really a hike but a stroll with a llama. But I loved every minute of walking with them. I thought it would be an hr and a half of walking with llamas/ alpacas but it was about 45 mins or an hr and the rest was learning about the farm and also got to meet some friendly goats! Would definitely recommend going for anyone as obsessed with alpacas and llamas as I am.

If you enjoy animals and learning about their behaviors and history , you will love this experience! The host was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and friendly. The llamas, alpacas and goats were fun to observe and interact with and of course walking the trail with former was a fantastic memory!

We had such a great time here. The background information we got on llamas and alpacas was great, and it was really interesting hearing about the history of the farm.We had just the most perfect weather for a hike like this, but I know it would have been good even on a rainy day.

What a great experience! Sandra greeted us and explained about the farm, we got to pet some cute goats and one super friendly cat and finally it was time for the hike. I was a bit nervous about it but Sandra convinced me to take Twist, a pet therapy Alpaca, with me, and I’m so glad I did! It was a unique experience - an absolute must! Make sure to book it directly through their website if you go!
