Alpaca trekking is great way to experience the outdoors, whilst also enjoying some chill time with these fantastic animals.
Products made from alpaca fibre are very popular because of their softness and ability to keep you warm on those cold Wintery days.
If you are interested in buying alpacas as pets or indeed as a business, there are shows held UK wide to attend for the alpaca experience.
Top of the list for all alpaca breeders and owners is health and welfare of their herds. Call us for any advice you may need.
