Cardiff Alpacas
VISITS
 
 

We welcome visitors - individuals, families, groups, clubs - any day of the week by pre-arrangement. We can cater for up to 24 (or more by special request). To enhance your visit, we can also provide teas and/or lunch, if required. Just phone us and make a time. We appreciate as much notice as possible, especially for larger groups. Also, bear in mind we are a working farm and not always available to take calls. Leave a message and we‘ll get back to you ASAP.

We do not charge an admission fee, but request a donation of $5 per head for teas and $10 per head for lunches.

Because we market directly to the public, having people visit and spread the word about what we do is of immense benefit to us. In fact, we believe that word of mouth is our best form of advertising.

Guided tours

A typical tour:
On arrival visitors are served morning or afternoon tea* or a light lunch**, during which we give a brief talk on the history of the farm. We then introduce the alpacas and discuss their characteristics and idiosyncrasies. Visitors can get "up close" and feed the animals if they wish. Following this is a demonstration of the various stages involved in fleece processing, during which we invite our guests to get hands-on experience. On display are examples of our end products (fleece batts, yarn, knitted goods, soft toys, pillows, cushions, bedding, pet beds, etc.) for visitors to inspect and, of course, purchase, should they wish to do so.

Special Occasions
Looking for a peaceful location in pleasant surroundings for that special event, group outing, Christmas/birthday get–together or family day? Why not picnic and party with pacas? We can provide morning or afternoon tea* and/or a picnic lunch**.
 
Give us a call to discuss your requirements.
