Our growing herd of black alpacas graze the 1.5 acres of paddocks adjoining Fairshaw Rigg
Feeding time is late afternoon, but after breakfast, guests can visit the animals and feed them a quick treat
Alpacas originate far up on the Altiplano in South America. They are incredibly hardy and live outside all year round.
Our herd are accumulating many awards and Nero Black Alpaca has a well earned reputation as a top black alpaca breeder
We plan our births to happen between May and September, but with an eleven month plus gestation, nothing can be guaranteed.
The 'Alpaca Experience'
For the real enthusiast, we offer a two hour 'Alpaca experience', when for a small charge you can, amongst other things, lead the alpacas around the paddocks.
