We’ll start in the house and talk about alpacas and how to approach and interact with them. Then we will move to the yard and introduce our four alpacas! We’ll explain what makes alpacas unique, and what they like and dislike. We will also share and clear up myths and misconceptions about them. Guests will have the opportunity to pet and feed the alpacas, take one for a walk around the yard, and take lots of pictures. Come with all of your alpaca questions! I’ll even answer the questions you didn’t know you had! Next we will move on to the chicken habitat and everyone will have the opportunity to observe, pet, and feed them. Please feel free to take lots of pictures! We will go in the coop to look for eggs, and finish up the outdoor tour with the smaller chicken coop, where you can meet a member of the smallest chicken breed in the world! (Coming in summer 2020: The world's largest chicken breed!) Questions and pictures are encouraged! You’ll be surprised how much variety there is in size, color, and personality. (I have a dozen breeds including rare breeds from a Black Copper Marans to a frizzled Serama. Silkies, too!) Before leaving, you can come back into the house to wash up, and take a look at chicken eggs of different sizes, colors and shapes.
I am an alpaca enthusiast and owner. I have always loved animals. I owned horses for many years, beginning at the age of fifteen when I began working as a trail guide. In 2007 I began to study and apply positive, gentle reinforcement training methods and did volunteer work rehabilitating horses. I began working with alpacas in 2011 when a pair of rescued alpacas came to the horse farm where I worked. I was intrigued by these unique animals and soon after I was fortunate to work for three years with a wonderful, knowledgeable mentor at Uinta Alpacas, a large alpaca breeding farm. Soon I had a handful of alpacas of my own, who now live in our backyard. I’m actively involved in the online alpaca community, learning from and sharing with fellow alpaca owners.
Our tiny residential farm is nestled in the foothills between the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Range. Our time will be spent time outside with the animals.
