Up close and personal alpaca walking adventure
Shed the outside world for a few hours. Picture yourself walking among gentle and always curious alpacas. Meet alpacas up close and personal. Feel their fuzzy noses as you hand-feed them. Learn about their history, their behavior and personalities, and what makes alpaca fiber special. Take a guided walk with one of our alpacas over pasture and wooded trails. Watch a demonstration of how raw alpaca fiber is processed and prepared for spinning into yarn. Then check out our farm store where you will find yarns and roving made from our alpacas’ fleece, felted soap wrapped in their fiber, a wide selection of wearable alpaca items for the whole family, alpaca-themed gift items, and photo cards of each of the alpacas you met. After the tour, you can relax in one of our three picnic areas or explore trails through 23 wooded acres and along Ballinger Creek. It’s time to take a break, relax and enjoy the farm. We set up this farm especially for your enjoyment. SUMMER HEAT ADVISORY — It is too dangerous to alpaca health to walk them when the Heat Index is above 90°. We can still do the tour, but not walking the alpaca. What we offer in place of the walk is to have you help us cool off our critters by hosing them. We will show you how, then you can take over giving them one of their favorite activities. They are like kids playing in the sprinklers.
