Wat je gaat doen

A tour on our farm entails first an introduction about how to behave around alpacas to get the best of the experience, and health and safety aspects of going into the paddocks. We will kit you up with some covers for your shoes to keep them clean during your farm walk.

An easy walk around the farm to various different groups of alpacas is undertaken while we explain why they are grouped together. When we get to the mums and young alpacas we give them some supplementary feed, some by hand as it socialises them well with people.

During the walk around the farm we will explain why their fibre is so prized and how we process it both onsite and in NZ. You will learn the animal husbandary that we undertake to ensure our alpacas are in top condition and well cared for.
During the walk there will be lots of opportunities for both selfies, we will take photos of your group with the alpacas and also you will get some wonderful scenic photos looking into the Hunter and Kepler mountains of Fiordland National Park and the Takitimu Mountains as well as Mt Titiroa which is the highest mountain in Western Fiordland.

At the end of the farm walk examples of washed carded fibre ready for processing and we have a big range of alpaca products for sale that can can be viewed in our Wild Wool Gallery on the farm next to Jessies studio.

My partner Ray and I breed and farm alpacas for their beautiful fleeces which I then use to hand felt into wearable art in a studio on our alpaca farm. We have been farming alpacas for the last 10 years and fell in love with their gentle loveable natures and their warm fine lustrious fibre.

Each day we do a round of the herd checking on them and supplementary feeding mums and young ones and we share this opportunity with others to introduce them into the world of alpacas and pass on knowledge about farming them. We have raised them to trust people and this close interaction makes managing them stressless for them. We respect each individual alpacas personality to ensure those more introverted are not imposed on.

I have been involved in farming all my life (60 odd years - not to give my age away) and love animals and live the dream.

This was so fun! The alpacas are well taken-care of, and we got to feed everyone from mommas to babies. Jesse’s art store is worth a visit even if you miss the tour.

We had the pleasure of being hosted by Ray on this amazing experience. Ray was easy to talk to, funny, and very kind. I loved how he was able to name ever alpaca that we interacted with. Each feeding is unique as they all have so many different personalities. So worth it and highly recommend!

I’m obsessed with alpacas so I was already excited for this experience, but I was blown away that you get to have so much interaction with them! We were able to feed mamas and babies and some of the alpacas were super friendly and liked being petted (I wasn’t sure if we’d actually be able to touch them, but there was lots of cuddle time). One of the babies was only 4 days old and so tiny and cute! Jessie is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about her work, it was a joy to hear her stories and learn more about raising these beautiful animals. She also has a really nice little gift shop with alpaca wool creations (I purchased an earwarmer and it kept me super cozy on the cold NZ nights). Thank you Jessie for a great experience, we loved it!

So much fun! Our guides (Melissa and Kelly?) were very knowledgeable and helped us feel comfortable with the alpacas. Plenty of food given to keep the alpacas coming! They also took lots of photos for us with our phones so that we can have the special memory. It was such a wonderful afternoon :)
