Visitors are welcome to see our alpacas during our Farm Store hours. You are welcome to stroll around our small farm at your leisure to see our girls, our boys, our Angora goats, our Angora rabbits, and our chickens. You may enjoy reading our “fencepost facts” which are facts about the fiber animals that live on our farm, which we have posted on our fenceposts. There is no fee for these self-guided tours.
Farm Tours for Groups
For groups of ten or more, we offer Farm Tours by appointment Monday thru Friday, May thru October. Tours are both educational and fun! There is a fee of $5 per person, with children two and under being free. Contact us or give us a call at (419) 529-8152 to schedule. Appointments are confirmed with payment here on our website, or by phone.
Schedule a Farm Tour for your school, church, scout troop, 4-H Club, civic organization, Garden Club, Mother’s Club, guild, family, or group of friends. There is something quite peaceful about alpacas. Undoubtedly you will experience a calmness while you are here, and probably learn something too!
About the Tours
- The tour lasts 30-60 minutes, depending on the interests of the group and number of questions.
- Learn about the history of alpacas, their origins, how their fiber is used, and how we care for them.
- On this guided tour, we will take you into the pastures and around our farm to meet our female alpacas and any crias (baby alpacas) that we might have, the male alpacas, the Angora goats (Mike, Ike, and Lola) the Angora rabbits (Simon and Mrs. Fitz), and our chickens including our handsome rooster Beauregard.
- Depending on the age and interests of the group, we can discuss the different steps involved in fiber processing, from shearing to the finished product. We are also happy to offer carding and spinning demonstrations.
- You are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy following the Farm Tour.
- Plan a little extra time to visit the Farm Store while you are here. Shop for a souvenir to remind you of your visit. Take home some beautiful alpaca yarn, or perhaps something soft and warm made from alpaca fiber.
- We do have plenty of room for a bus or RV, to park and get turned around.
- Be sure to dress for the weather, uneven terrain, and depending on the time of year, sometimes mud.
