LATEST NEWS!!

Its a long time since the website has been updated, please accept our apologies!

A lots has happen in the last 5 years, the farm has grown and developed, we currently have 42 Alpacas plus 11 Pygmy Goats, including a minature pygmy billy and 3 minature pygmy nannies who hopefully will be having babies in the next few months, very excited for these to start arriving!

We are also extremely busy with our Alpaca Experience Visits on and off the farm, we have lots of visitors coming to the farm to meet, feed and walk with the alpacas, we also do Alpaca Therapy with some of our boys, on the farm but also off the farm.  We are also busy taking the boys out to Hosiptals & Care/Resdentail Homes, there are great success and it is very rewarding to see how the light up peoples lives.

 

*****************************************************************

But I think the biggest thing to happen is we reached our dream and built our dream home on the farm.   Four and half years after we got our temporary permission to live on site, in November 2013 we got planning permission to build our farmhouse.  And in Janaury 2014 we started the first stages of the build, putting in the driveway, in April 2014 the foundations for the house were dug out and concreted and the build began.  It took just over a year to build, with Tony doing all the building work, working evenings and weekends (still doing his day job building houses out on site!)  and we just had tradesmen in to do the electic wiring and the heating & plumbing.

Cria 2009

  • 21/05/09 we had our first new arrival of the year - Cotswold Vale Faith.  Anastasia our lovely coffee coloured  female gave birth to a beautiful chocolate coloured little girl.   She was 16 days late!!  But arrived on a perfect day - it was my Dad's birthday who had sadly passed away 2 years ago from cancer, so call me soft or what but I believe its a sign to have faith in our dreams and follow them through!!
  • We've had our very first new arrival to our foundation herd.  On Sunday 6th July 2008, Toyah gave birth to a little black boy, after a bit of a worrying start both mother and baby both doing well. 

  • 31st July 2008 - More new arrivals.  Both our Suri girls have given birth within a couple of days of each, both giving us beautiful little girls - "Bonnie & Cleo".
