SPRINGTIME FUN ON THE FARM 2024

Cuddly Lambs, cute Alpacas and Mini Moos!

Available every day Monday 25th March 2024 to Sunday 7th April 2024

Lambs already here!

Join us for our special Spring farm experience where we welcome ewes and their newly born lambs to the farm alongside our brand new Dexter cows - not forgetting our resident alpacas!

This is a great opportunity to get hands-on, up-close and personal with animals at a quaint and rustic Shropshire farm in a stunning location. There are no crowds, we keep numbers low to ensure everyone gets an unforgettable experience.

The experience is suitable for adults and families alike!

On arrival at the farm you will receive a brief introduction to your experience from us before getting started. We will then get underway, first taking you across to The Old Barn, where you will meet Ewes and their new-born Lambs from our neighbours at Windy Ridge Shropshire Sheep.  Then, we'll head into our ruined walled garden where you'll meet our cute Dexter Cows. Finally, we'll take you to our alpaca field where you'll walk through three paddocks to meet our Alpacas.

 

We promise an unforgettable and enchanting two hours!
 

Your ticket will include:
 

  • An introduction to the new lambs on the farm in the Old Barn, plus bottle feeding demonstrations (when our lambs need it) and opportunities to hold and pet them.
     

  • An introduction to our 3 new Dexter cows in the ruined Walled Garden, including an opportunity to feed and pet them.
     

  • A meet and greet with our herd of 18 alpacas in the Triangle Field including feeding and petting.

What You Need To Know

Frankly Alpacas is based on a working farm with minimal facilities in a rural location. You may need to walk across rough and uneven ground in multiple weather conditions. ​

While all our animals are calm and good-natured creatures, they are still large wild animals and can therefore be unpredictable. It is imperative that you supervise any children you bring with you at all times, ensuring they remain by your side and are not allowed to roam around freely. This is vital to ensure their safety.

For reasons of safety please be aware that you must ensure your hands are washed and cleaned after handling the animals and before you leave us. 

We provide handwashing facilities and anti-bacterial gel.

Due to their size you will view and handle our Dexter Cattle behind a fence or gate.

FOR SAFETY REASONS THIS EXPERIENCE IS UNSUITABLE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN.

A rebooking fee of £15 will apply.
