Wat je gaat doen

Guests are welcomed and briefed on behaviour around Alpaca. I explain the origin of Alpaca, introduce guests to a number of the 35+ named females from the herd surrounding us. Alpaca are curious, unique animals that enjoy company. I continue to share facts and observations as we move toward the feeding area where guests can hand feed from a scoop or from their hand directly with the animals. During this intimate interaction, I cover why they are so valuable to our environment, mention university studies conducted on their benefits as selective grazers and fertilizers. I continue sharing facts on breeding, social structure of the herd and how their fibre has been dramatically improved since introduction to Australia. I then explain how my farm is run. If I have babies (cria), we observe them with their mothers. Following this, I then explain how Alpaca fibre is harvested, processed and spun into yarn ready for knitting, weaving or blending with other fibre. Guests can feel and appreciate the difference between wool and aplaca. I have finished product from my herd demonstrating my "paddock to product" cycle. Answering questions along the way and welcoming photos throughout.

I have had the privilege of farming Alpaca for over 17 years. It is the love of sustainable farming and animals that has drawn me to Alpaca. Observing their behaviour, subtle social interaction, building trust to engage at a very personal level with each individual animal through low stress management and appreciating their value to our environment.
My passion is to allow guests to share my knowledge, feed by hand, stand and observe, learn how to "speak" alpaca and be amazed at their intelligence.
Australia is a leader in Alpaca farming producing consistent fine and superfine fibre that is in demand around the world. I take visitors on the journey of "paddock to product" demonstrating the value and difference between wool and alpaca.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Guests will be on a working Alpaca farm. There is a large house paddock where Alpaca mix with guests. I have a large under cover shed for the comfort of guests should weather be cool to ensure they can hand feed in comfort. Other paddocks lead off this main paddock where mothers and babies are housed, geriatrics have their dedicated paddock or stud males reside.

The farm is owned and operated by a nice lady called Susan. We can watch and hand-feed Alpacas.  Susan will teach you about the Alpacas and their history in Australia. You will also learn to communicate with Alpacas. Once you finished interacting with Alpacas, Susan will talk about the Alpaca fiber industry and show you samples from the farm. You become one of Alpaca Ambassador after the experience.

Susan was very patient and kind with our children, helping them feel comfortable with the animals. The gentle, caring approach with the Alpacas and the focus on sustainable, humane farming was a joy to observe.

Meeting and feeding Susan’s Alpacas was a wonderful morning. They are super adorable and it was fun to be in amongst a herd of them. Susan is very knowledgeable and passionate about her animals with a lot of information to share. My 11 year old daughter completely loved it and we’ll definitely bring other family members when we’re next in the area.

I took a day off from work in order to re-route my weekend road trip to include Susan’s fantastic immersive Alpaca feeding experience because I knew it would be incredible. There were way more Alpacas than I ever could have imagined. I counted 80! Wow. So cool.

Susan was friendly and knowledgeable and obviously has a love for her alpacas. The kids really enjoyed feeding them and we all learned a lot about these animals that we didn’t know before.

When I booked this experience I simply expected to be able to get close to the alpacas and to feed them, but what we got was much more. Susan has such a deep and vast knowledge of these beautiful animals and is able to convey it in a very simple and stimulating way. We learnt about their behaviour, lifecycle and importance from the ecological and economical point of view. It is also evident that Susan loves her alpacas with all her heart, and it was amazing to get to know their names and personalities. Luckily enough, we could also meet some newborn little ones! We highly recommend this experience!
