Our Alpacas

Boys%2520Jan_edited_edited.jpg

The Oak Tree Alpaca Herd

The herd is made up of 16 male and 9 female alpacas (and 2 sheep who joined as bottle-fed lambs!).

Alpacas are curious and gentle animals who thrive in the company of other alpacas. They come from South America originally and are part of the camelid family. They are sometimes confused with llamas, but are smaller and spit much less!

Alpacas are well-known for their fantastic fleeces - softer than lambswool and incredibly tough. They are sheared once a year, usually in May. 

We have had a number of cria (baby alpacas) born on the farm - last year, 4 little ones joined the herd. 

The benefits of spending time with animals are well known so we offer the opportunity for people to come and visit. 

 

You can also book alpacas for special occasions like weddings if they are held at our neighbours, Woodborough Hall get in touch to find out more.

 

We sell pure alpaca wool rugs made in the Outer Hebrides which are just beautiful. See the rugs here.

As well as making use of their fleeces, we also use their poo in the Farm Garden. Of course, there is plenty of it so we also sell both small bags of alpaca "beans" for bonsai and houseplants and larger sacks of mulch. Find out more here
