VISITING OUR FARM/GENERAL ADMISSION

*FREE INFORMATION SESSION INCLUDED*
(please ask for start times upon payment)

You are not required to book a tour to view the alpacas at Kensington Prairie Farm. 

The farm is open Fridays (12-5 pm), Saturdays (10-4 pm) and Sundays (12-4 pm) for alpaca viewing and boutique shopping. You are required to check in and wash your hands before your visit. 

The cost for general admission is as follows:

Adults and Youth - $5/person
Children (5 and under) - FREE

Your admission fee can be applied against any purchase (above $10) made in-store on the day of your visit.

Please remember and respect the fact that we are a working farm (not a petting zoo) and our alpacas are mostly turned out to pasture. While general admission is a great way to explore our farm and view the alpacas, booking a guided tour is the only way to ensure that you will have an up close interaction with the animals. 

 

PRE-BOOKED GUIDED TOURS:

We recommend that you arrive on farm by 10:15 am to check in and wash your hands (pre-payment is now required for 100% of the tour balance).

The tour will begin at scheduled start time of 10:30 am so it is important to be on time. If you miss the initial safety talk, you will not be permitted on our tour. 

Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to feed the alpacas out of your hands or touch the animals at this time.
We encourage you to feed the alpacas out of the sanitized buckets provided. 

The cost for tours are as follows:

Adults and Youth - $10/person
Children (5 and under) - FREE

Tours last 45 minutes and take place at 10:30 am - 11:15 am on Fridays / Saturdays.

 

Tours must be booked in advance and operate on a first-come, first-served basis.
