The Full Alpaca Experience

  • Location Axminster
  • Price from £65.00


The perfect experience for any alpaca fan, where you can really get to know each alpaca and find out what it is like to care for these amazing animals!

We will immerse you in our world of alpacas through a variety of fun and hands-on activities!

Timing: 9.30am - 1.30pm
Please aim to arrive at 9.20am to give time to get ready and allow for any delays.

The Full Alpaca Experience:
  • On arrival we welcome you to Little Orchard Alpacas with a hot drink to get ready for your busy morning!
  • Then we get into the fun, starting with an introduction to each group of alpacas whilst we carry out some of the daily alpaca husbandry tasks. 
  • These include: feeding, checking water & hay, a little bit of poop scooping and general herd checks, plus any special jobs of the day!
  • You will get lots of time to spend time up close with our whole herd and to get used to being around the alpacas.
  • Then you will learn how to handle and halter our lovely alpacas, before we take them for a relaxing alpaca walk around the field and apple orchard. 
  • Then we break for some drinks and homemade cake which you can enjoy in our undercover area, or alongside the alpaca paddock in our picnic spot.
  • To give you the chance to feel and learn about alpaca fibre we will spend some time doing an easy alpaca crafty session (suitable for everyone!), to make a souvenir to take home with you. (All materials are included). 
  • At the end you are welcome to have a browse in our on-site alpaca shop.
  • If you would like to bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy at the end of your experience we welcome you to stay a little longer in one of our picnic areas. 

Alpaca Keeper Experience (9.30am - 1.30pm): £65 per person, with a minimum of two people attending to run the day. 

Maximum group size of four people 

Additional Information:
Our Alpaca Keeper Mornings are also ideal for those considering keeping alpacas and would like a fun and informative introduction to them, before embarking on a full husbandry course. 
We also have an Introduction to Alpaca Keeping course for those who would like more in-depth learning about keeping these fascinating animals. 
This experience day is aimed at adults, however we can run an Alpaca Keeper Day for ages 14+ with a minimum of one adult also attending.

What to bring:
Wellies or boots and trousers are a must as it can be muddy and it is important to keep feet and legs protected at all times.
Layers and rain jackets or waterproofs – dress for the weather!
Other weather protection – think sun cream, insect repellent, hats and gloves.
We provide drinks and refreshments, but it is a good idea to bring along a bottle of water to keep hydrated. 
Please let us know if you would like a gluten free, dairy free or vegan cake option. 

Weather Policy:
If the weather is unsuitable (heavy rain, windy or high temperatures) we will get in touch the day before your walk to let you know and rearrange for a better day (we are unable to refund vouchers, which are valid for 12 months).
