Here at our Alpaca Farm in Mosstowie near Elgin in Morayshire, we have over 80 alpacas in all colours and of all ages. As well as looking after the alpacas, we breed them each year and we also have a wee Alpaca Farm Shop where you can browse through the lovely products we make from our alpacas' gorgeous fleeces.
But, we don't like to keep the alpacas to ourselves and so we also run Alpaca Days Out. It's a way to let people be up-close with alpacas, to learn about them and spend time with them, and perhaps to take one for an Alpaca Trek on the farm.
We run Alpaca Days Out all year round but it is essential to book in advance. We sometimes have availability at short-notice though - just ask !
Approx 3 hours
Adults and over 14s Only
Private just to your booked party
£40 per person
Spend time with the alpacas in their fields and follow them as they graze. We'll tell you all about alpacas and will tell you about individuals too - we know them all by name !
Then feed, handle and halter alpacas and take them for a walk on the farm. There is no difficult terrain, no steep slopes and no mud.
Finish up in the farmhouse for real coffee and freshly baked cake !
We greatly enjoy having visitors here for Alpaca Days Out !
One of the best parts is seeing visitors' faces when they are first in the field with the alpacas - being surrounded by 70 alpacas isn't the kind of thing most people do every day.
Visitors are with us all the time they're here. We know the animals well and can tell visitors a bit about each one - how Jura got her name, how many cria Jasmine has had and why Llemmy the llama behaves like he does !
We'll also be able to tell visitors all about the natural history of alpacas and the role they played in the lives of the Incan people, about looking after alpacas and about their fleeces and how they are processed into lovely yarns and other products, some of which we sell in our wee Alpaca Farm Shop.
But, if what you'd really like to do is sit quietly in the field and just be with the alpacas, we can make that happen too !
