With a variety of sessions to choose from, each starting with a very interesting and fun introduction to these unique animals, before being matched to your perfect walking partner, (llama and alpaca speed dating)! you are guaranteed to have a memorable experience, not to mention making a friend for life.

Take in the sights of the farm and stunning surrounding scenery with a Scenic Farm Trek. This short 1.5mile route will see you walk alongside your llama or alpaca as well as meeting members of the rest of the herd before heading back to enjoy a delicious variety of cakes and refreshments.

A half day trek means you can spend a little longer with your fleecy friend. This 3.5 mile trek will take you and your llama through tracks, fields and quiet country roads, spotting wildlife along the way before stopping in a peaceful woodland area for beverages all carried by your llama! Your day ends with a delicious homemade individual picnic at the farm, that caters for all dietary requirements and tastes as you select your choices upon booking.
