We are gradually building a herd of alpacas and a flock of sheep that have lovely temperaments and beautiful fleeces. Most of our animals have come to join us from other local farms but each year we also welcome lambs from our own Shetland ewes. You can meet the animals when you come and stay at our farm campsite. Alpaca walks are also available to our campers.
The alpacas and sheep provide beautiful, soft fleeces and graze the meadows and herbal leys on our 80 acre farm.
Our flock of Bovans Goldline hens live with the alpacas in a generally harmonious relationship. The hens produce free range eggs and clean up the paddocks, whilst the alpacas provide protection from predators and a soft back to lean against when the weather is cold.
Neel is a member of Hepworth Bee Co-operative and he looks after one of the hives on the farm. The bees have acres of nectar and pollen mixes planted around the farm as part of the Countryside Stewardship scheme. These plots support the local insect population and provide a valuable nectar source.
