Alfresco Alpacas

This lovely weather has encouraged us to make maximum use of our large windows.   We have removed all the rugs from the living room just in case we have any unwanted visitors as the floor is natural stone so can be washed easily.  Chicken Licken has already made a bid for entry but we are trying to make sure that only the dogs consider it home.   The alpacas used to look in as if they hoped to make it return to its old use as a barn but have now decided that the new barn is more to their taste.  Luckily the free-ranging sheep stick with the alpaca herd or else huddle in one of the field shelters for shade.

We are often asked for our opening hours by people who would like to come and see the alpacas and possibly buy some of our alpaca products.   We love to have visitors but also need time to tend the animals and land on our smallholding, so we have decided to experiment with opening on a regular basis during the holiday season.

We are going to offer Refreshments and picnics 11.30 – 3 p.m.  Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays and we might extend it to weekends later  if it goes well.  (Closed  on the 1st and 13th 14th  15th August)
