Alpaca beginners day (socially distanced)

October 10 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

Three crias

Alpaca beginners day course with COVID protocols.

Our socially distanced alpaca beginners day course is aimed at you if you are thinking that alpaca ownership might suit you! On the day, you will learn all about keeping these amazing animals – Spring Farm’s alpacas. During the day, we will cover topics including:

  • Why keep alpacas?
  • Alpaca daily routines
  • Handling and haltering
  • Vets, diseases and biosecurity
  • Why choose Spring Farm Alpacas?
  • Our complete back up service
  • Alpaca fibre

Part of our alpaca beginners day is indoors and part is outdoors where we cover handling and the like. If the weather is poor we can still offer the outdoor section under cover in our purpose built handling facilities. The day runs from 10:30am till about 4:30pm and includes refreshments and a sandwich lunch – please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements at the time of booking.

The day is aimed at anyone who is thinking about breeding alpacas or just buying alpacas as pets. We can also cover other topics such as showing and the “business” of alpacas if required. Just let us know, when you contact us, how you think alpaca ownership might fit into your life.

 

We only have six spaces on these days as a result of needing to be socially distanced so if you are interested in alpaca ownership and attending our beginners day course, you need to reserve a space. Please contact us by email on: info@springfarmalpacas.co.uk

The cost of these days is just £48 per person (Inc. VAT) to include a sandwich lunch and tea/coffee/soft drinks. The cost is fully refundable against a purchase of a Spring Farm alpaca (although please remind us!).

If this day doesn’t suit your diary, we will be offering the same socially distanced beginners day later in the year (or before this date on the 12th September 2020). Feel free to contact us in the meantime if this date doesn’t suit you and you would like to attend a future date.

We can also offer one on one husbandry days here at Spring Farm. These might  appeal to existing owners looking to learn how to handle their alpacas better. Our tailored husbandry days only cost £100 plus VAT per person (£110 plus VAT per couple) and offer exceptional value for money. As these are bespoke, please contact us directly to arrange a one on one husbandry day.

We have 20 years experience of alpaca breeding and are known throughout the industry for our friendly, well trained alpacas and our second to none back-up.

We look forward to meeting you!

Vicki and Chris
