活動內容

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.

體驗地點

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.
