Farm Tours last approximately 1.5 to 2.0 hours.

The first 45 minutes you will learn about the alpaca's; during this time you will have 4-6 alpaca's roaming around the room with you.

The next 30 minutes you will be outside with the female herd, feeding, petting, and taking pictures. It is a perfect opportunity to ask questions and enjoy our amazing herd.

The last 30 minutes you will learn about their fiber. We will let you (as a group) use our machines. The group will make a project together and at the end each person will receive a part of what you make.
