Training Alpacas & Alpaca Care

Whether you are prospective, new or experienced owners of alpacas, we run different courses suited to you.

We are the only alpaca farm in the UK to offer a comprehensive range of courses designed to help you achieve your goals and ambitions.

Most of our workshops are held on a regular basis and the dates are shown below.  Our events are usually run even if it is wet, as we have purpose built, under cover facilities.

We deliberately limit the number of participants on our courses in order to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere, where everyone gets plenty of hands on experience with the alpacas, and also has the opportunity to ask those all important questions.

We provide information sheets throughout the day for you to take home.

All our courses and workshops include refreshments and special diets can be catered for.

Gift Vouchers are available for any of our courses – Just phone us to discuss your requirements.

We happily supply fleeces to skirt but why not bring yours?
