BREAKFAST WITH ALPACAS

Having Breakfast with Alpacas is one of the great things to do on the Central Coast The experience includes 1.5 hours with the alpacas, sheep and cows followed by a delicious breakfast with the alpacas.

On arrival Billy our very special guard alpaca will greet you. He will be wanting to be fed sliced carrots (that we provide) before he will let you on the farm. Next, you’ll meet Ellie a wiltipoll sheep who is Billy’s best friend. Ellie enjoys a good deep tissue massage. Joining Billy are Will and Harry along with our herd of llamas

Next we meet Benny and our flock of wiltipoll sheep. They are keen for their grain and carrots. Here you’ll have the chance to hand feed the sheep and learn about what makes wiltipolls different to other sheep. You’ll also meet Lola and Abby our maremmas who guards the sheep.

Next, you’ll walk down the laneway to our angus cattle who’ll be waiting to be hand fed and given a pat.

From here it’s off to our herd of 82 alpacas where you will have the opportunity to hand feed them their alpaca mix and carrots. We spend time getting to know the alpacas, interacting with them, and learning their personalities.
When the alpacas are full it’s time to head up for your breakfast with the alpacas and llamas.

Breakfast includes a selection of cereals, yoghurt, fruit platter, muffins, tea breads, bacon & egg sandwich, tea, coffee, juice & water. gluten free and vegan option available.
