'Self-Guided Farm Tours'
You are not require to book a tour to view the alpacas at our farm. The farm is open Fridays (12-5pm), Saturdays (10-4 pm) and Sundays (12-4pm) for alpaca viewing and boutique shopping.
We ask you to remember and respect that we are a working farm and our alpacas are mostly turned out to pasture. This means that sometimes they are easily viewed from the fence line, while other times they may only be able to be seen from a distance. While a self-guided tour is a great way to explore our farm and the products we carry, booking a guided tour is the only way to ensure that you will be able to see alpacas up close and personal!
