Spring Farm Alpacas now offers alpaca (and llama) walking around our beautiful farm in East Sussex. Situated in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Spring Farm is superbly located adjacent to the Ashdown Forest, Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park and the historic village of Fletching. Alpaca walking is huge fun for everyone – not just our alpacas! Alpacas are delightful and friendly animals and ours all know their names. Everybody who comes to our farm for an alpaca trek comments on how relaxing our alpacas are to be around.
With their inquisitive nature, they are great fun to take for a walk and are certain to put a smile on your face! After a short introduction to us and our farm, we will introduce you to our alpaca and llama family. We will then halter up our walking alpaca team (we occasionally take a llama as well - let us know if you would rather not walk a llama) and set off for a casual walk around our 110 acre farm. During the walk, we will tell you a little about alpacas, their history, their stunning fleece and farming on Spring Farm. Spring Farm has been managed within Countryside Stewardship for the last 17 years and we will tell you about farming in a wildlife friendly way and hopefully spot some of the wildlife we have encouraged to thrive here – a UK alpaca and wildlife safari!
We expect the walk to last about 50 minutes and it is across undulating fields all within our boundaries – so you should not encounter any unexpected surprises. The distance we cover is about a mile. Allowing for the brief introduction and paying your walking alpaca (in carrots which are provided ready chopped!) you should allow about two hours for the experience.
