What do we offer
We are opening the farm for Alpaca walks from Saturday 4th July. Thank you to everyone who deferred current bookings due to the Coronavirus, it really helped support our farm and staff. We are now ready to start to slowly open the farm again. In the first few months we will only be running small groups of a maximum of 6 people and where possible this will be one family group. If you are group of two of three then we will have a maximum of two groups as we will be able to maintain a safe distance.
Your safety and health together with the health of our staff and alpacas is of the upmost importance so you will be asked to wash your hands, use hand sanitisers while at the farm. We will not be able to offer refreshments like before for the time being ,so we would kindly ask you to bring some with you. We will ask you to use the foot dips on the farm.
All equipment will be disinfected before and after your arrival and we ask you to bring gloves and the use of masks if you would like to use them.
The obstacle course will still be running but sadly we will no longer be able to give rosettes at the moment.
On a positive note , the alpacas will be so pleased to see you as they have missed the people and the walks, the sun is shining and its summer and we will be so pleased to meet you and show you the alpacas.
Its baby season with two arrivals and lots to come so you never know you may get to see one born !
Any Questions please ask
We would like to introduce you to our alpaca experience. Come along an meet the alpacas and walk then through the stunning Suffolk countryside. After the walk we come back to farm to meet the other alpacas and babies and you will get a chance to go inside the paddock with them . If you would like to hand feed them there is a chance to purchase small bags of feed, so bring some small change with you they really appreciate it . There, are lots of photo opportunities around the farm and on the walk. You will also be offered tea, coffee or cold drinks after the walk while we sit down for an alpaca chat. We hold a fun alpaca quiz while you are on the walk so you will be full of alpaca facts when you finish.
We love our alpacas and love to tell you all about them. We are a small family run working farm and keep the groups small so we can offer a real family working farm feel.
THEN IS CHANCE TO TAKE PART IN THE HILLY RIDGE OBSTACLE COURSE WITH ROSETTES 1ST , 2ND AND 3RD PLACE
CHILDREN ALWAYS GET ROSETTES AND ARE AWARDED THEM AS YOUNG HANDLERS
Small bags of feed are £1 ( pop some in your pocket for when you are out on the walk and your alpaca will love it )
ONE ALPACA AND ONE WALKER
One alpaca and one walker. You are introduced to your alpaca and shown how to walk them, then it off for a lovely relaxing walk as alpaca speed ( a toddle) round the lovely countryside. We will leave the farm and walk along a farm track till we get to a little stream which the alpacas jump across , then along the track until we get to the enchanted woods with a jump up to the bridge and back along to the farm. If you are lucky you may see the occasional deer or hare along the way.
Then its back to the farm for some refreshments and an alpaca chat before we head off to meet the other alpacas and the babies and see if they would like to be hand fed ( of course they never say no ! ) . Then its the chance to tackle the HILLY RIDGE MINI OBSTACLE course ! test you handling skills against the clock and against your friends to find the winner of the day ! Rosettes for the winner and all that compete to take home with you.
Photos opportunities along the way. £25.00 per person incl VAT

SOME FAQ. Q. I have a child can they walk their own alpaca ?
A. It depends on the child. Children under 12 must have an accompanying adult with them to walk alongside the alpaca. So it would be one place at £25 and then one walker at £10. Children 12 and over can generally walk their own alpaca.
Q. I have a five year old child can they come on a walk.
A . Please call us as we can cater for young children on a separate experience and tailor the walk to your needs
Q. Can you accommodate wheel chairs
A. At the moment due to the off farm terrain it would be difficult to cater for Wheelchairs however we don't want anyone to miss out so please contact us to see how we can make it possible
Q. I cannot see the answer to my question can I call you
A . Yes of course, you can call me anytime : 0770 3005447 or 01449 257854.
