Here at Spring Farm Alpacas we have to think of the safety of you, our guests, and our staff. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all alpaca walking (and close our holiday let) during this additional lockdown period – from Thursday 5th November until the 2nd December. We realise this will be very upsetting for anyone who has booked a walk over that period. However, we have to think about safety first.
We will be constantly monitoring the situation with regards to future walks. Since the last lockdown we have been very serious about your safety when you visit us and have in place stringent COVID protocols. When we are able to reopen you can be sure that we will continue to do everything to ensure that visiting Spring Farm is as safe as it can possibly be.
If you have booked a walk in the period up to the 2nd of December, we will be emailing you in the next day or so with further details and with a voucher attached so you can rebook when “things get back to normal” subject to availability. Please be aware that we don’t date our vouchers. So as long as we are here – they are valid.
You may be concerned about the welfare of our walking alpacas but you can rest assured that we will continue to look after them all with our usual care and attention. We aim to use this time (without being able to offer walks) to good end. We will finish the halter training of the 2019 born crias (baby alpacas) so the walking team may well see new entrants! We have had 21 new babies during 2020 so will spend a lot of time looking after the babies (and their mums). You can follow us and what we are up to on our Instagram page: springfarmalpacas
These are difficult times for us all but you can rest assured your health is paramount to us. We will keep the diary open for future bookings after the 2nd of December 2020 but keep an open mind as to how we proceed from here. In the event of continuing restrictions after the 2nd December, we will continue on the same basis and issue undated credit vouchers.
Once again, we are very sorry to have to do this as we know that alpaca walking is great fun but we have to think of your welfare first and foremost.
Stay safe and well,
Vicki and Chris Agar, Spring Farm Alpacas and Alpaca Walking.
