Alpaca Encounter - Groups of 10 or more
Our Encounter Series is popular with groups of 10 or more!
Get up close & personal with our curious and friendly alpacas at SHED Chetwyn Farms. Enjoy the serenity of our farm in these private sessions where our facilitator will introduce you to the alpacas, by name (yes they all have names) make connections with their unique personalities and enjoy an informational and educational look at alpaca farming on a working fibre farm. Alpacas by nature are shy and quiet- but before the end of your encounter – with patience and kindness you will gain the trust of our alpacas. You will feel their restorative quality and dwell in the peace and calming influence they have on us!
As we are a working fibre farm, we move with the rhythm of the seasons and the rhythm of the daily pasture rotation of the alpaca. Weather permitting we wander the fields, stop under the apple trees or spend time in the purpose-built Show Ring. Bring your camera for the ultimate selfie, and prepare to fall in love with these magical, elegant animals.
We do not halter our alpaca at SHED Chetwyn Farms, allowing them to graze naturally and move freely within the secured paddocks and fields. You are a guest in their surroundings, and ask you to be mindful of proper farm etiquette.
What to Bring: A camera, suitable clothing and footwear.
