We are sorry but due to the government guidelines we are currently closed for visitors to the farm All of us including the alpacas have really miss everybody but we agree this lockdown is needed so we can finally ensure everyone is safe and we can beat this virus. However we still want to bring the " Pacca's to the people " and we are now running Zoom calls. This helps support our farm while we are in lockdown and will hopefully still make people smile while they are isolating. So we have introduced 'ALPACA POP UPS'.
Would you like to make your staff smile and show them your appreciation for their work in this difficult time
Then have an alpaca at the introduction of your meeting, or maybe you would like to send a message via zoom or live chat to a relative in a care home or isolating to make them smile. Every call is different so please either give me a call to discuss your requirements or complete the contact form on the link below to tell us what you would like. This is a new Pacca Product so we are developing this and encourage new ideas and input from you !
