Què farem?

Our guests arrive on site, and after the “human” introductions we proceed to the alpacas, where before entering the enclosure guests are briefed on how to behave around the animals, how to handle them, and a general safety talk concerning been on a farm with loose animals. They will then come and meet the alpacas, hand feed them and learn about the history of the alpaca species with facts and information while they can also get hands on a handle the animals. Then we halter up and after practicing leading the guests then lead the alpacas around the farm, meeting the various farm animals here, depending on the time of year this can include hand feeding, bottle feeding lambs/goats kids, photo opportunities with the pigs/cattle/sheep. Whilst walking any wildlife is pointed out, along with natural features ( mountains, peat bog, ancient oak woodland). We also talk about the various farm animals, benefits of the free range systems of care, and answer any questions. We then continue the walk back to the other alpacas, before letting the herd back out. At this point guests can enjoy a drink, or are welcome to bring a picnic and can watch the alpacas at leisure, grazing and playing.
At all points the guide is there to answer any questions, and tell people information about all the animals and nature.

I have worked with various animals thoroughout my life, mainly horses, owning my own and working at livery yards, riding stables and stud farms, along with farm animals at agricultural college and farm work. I have bred and shown cats and dogs to a high level, and have owned alpacas for the last 8 years. I have read extensively on their care and history, and also hand spin and produce products from their fibre. I also spin my sheep’s wool. The walk is around our farm- where we have a range of outdoor pedigree pigs, sheep , cattle so we also educate people about farming and care of farm animals, as part of a system in protecting the land and wildlife. Been in Snowdonia national park we have again focused on the biodiversity of the land. We have a small herd of breeding alpaca. I am passionate about sustainability and working with nature.

Loved the alpaca farm visit! Gayle is super knowledgeable about the animals and the environment and we learnt a lot. The alpacas were adorable and we met other animals too which I didn’t expect! My animal cravings were satisfied

Gayle's alpaca walks was a great trip on our visit to Wales. There are a number of alpacas on the farm and each of them has their own personality, which Gayle will tell you all about! The walk starts with an introduction to the animals, where you feed them (so that they begin to trust you!) and Gayle gives you a host of information about the animals. You then walk the Alpacas around the farm and get to learn about life on the farm, the animals (there are some surprises) and get to meet a few more residents on the farm. It was a lovely experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Well worth the experience. Extremely educational, even at 40 years old, and great to see such passion for everything environmentally including the preservation of what some farmers would see as vermin namely foxes opting to use the Alpaca’s and Rhea’s

From start to finish Gayle was knowledgable about the alpacas and her other farm animals. One of the best two hours I’ve spent in a long time. The alpacas were beautiful and very friendly, would definitely go again and highly recommend this experience and my heart will always be with Maddy the Alpaca 😂
