Cardiff Alpacas
VISITS
 
We welcome visitors - individuals, families, groups, clubs - any day of the week, by pre-arrangement. We conduct morning/afternoon tea and lunch tours and can cater for up to 45 people for teas and 30 for lunches.

Payment for your visit is by donation: we request a donation of $5 per head for teas and $10 per head for lunches. We do not charge an admission fee.

Please 
bear in mind that we are, first and foremost, a working farm and need to plan all visits around our regular daily schedule. To avoid disappointment, please assist us by observing the following guidelines:

* Wherever possible, plan ahead: try to give us exact numbers and as much notice as possible. We pride ourselves in providing fresh, home-cooked meals, but we are not an a la carte restaurant! We need time to prepare for your visit. This is especially important for larger groups.

* Be aware that we work long hours and are not always available to take phone calls. If your call is not answered, leave us a message and we guarantee to get back to you ASAP.

* Organisers, please help us by collecting payment from your group, in advance, and handing it to us as a lump sum.

Of course, we understand that, particularly for individuals, families and small groups, planning ahead is not always possible. In such cases, we will always do our best to fit in with your requirements at short notice.

Because we market directly to the public, having people visit and spread the word about what we do is of immense benefit to us. In fact, we believe that word of mouth is our best form of advertising.

Guided tours

A typical tour:
On arrival visitors are served morning or afternoon tea* or a light lunch**, during which we give a brief talk on the history of the farm. We then introduce the alpacas and discuss their characteristics and idiosyncrasies. Visitors can get "up close" and feed the animals if they wish. Following this is a demonstration of the various stages involved in fleece processing, during which we invite our guests to get hands-on experience. On display are examples of our end products (fleece batts, yarn, knitted goods, soft toys, pillows, cushions, bedding, pet beds, etc.) for visitors to inspect and, of course, purchase, should they wish to do so. We also have on sale a selection of home-made jams, jellies and chutneys produced from local ingredients. 

Special Occasions
Looking for a peaceful location in pleasant surroundings for that special event, group outing, Christmas/birthday get–together or family day? Why not picnic and party with pacas? We can provide morning or afternoon tea* and/or a light lunch**.
