ALPACA HANDLING DEMO (Single Ticket)
This is for a hands-on ALPACA HANDLING DEMONSTRATION with a limit of 8 per group.
PLEASE ARRIVE 10 MINUTES EARLY to allow time for checking in and signing a waiver prior to your demo. We will start on time and not be able to wait for latecomers; however, you may join the group upon your arrival.
Set atop one of the highest peaks of the beautiful Catskill Mountains in upstate New York is our 40-acre family farm, Buck Brook Alpacas, where we raise and breed over 100 Huacaya alpacas. Other farm residents include (but are not limited to!) Angora bunnies, chickens, cats, and a pig named Daisy.
We offer public and private tours year-round where you and your loved ones can take anywhere from a short 45-min tour to an extended few hours' visit taking a tour walking an alpaca, shopping alpaca gifts, or taking in the scenic view with a picnic.
In this hands-on alpaca walking demonstration, each member in the tour will receive:
- an overview/lesson of the proper and safe handling of an alpaca
- a turn to walk an alpaca on an obstacle course
- a 10% off voucher for anything in our farm store upon arrival
Fun and learning for all ages, plus play a part helping to to spread awareness about these sustainably-beneficial fiber producers!
