If you’ve ever been intrigued by these remarkable animals, the Alpaca Knuffle Shuffle is a one of a kind opportunity to engage with them. Often referred to as “Dolphins of the Pasture”, Alpacas have an incredible ability to bring balance and calm to us through the connection created on our hike through the fields in the beautiful rolling hills of Northumberland County. What you can look forward to: Approximately 1 hour of interaction with the animals. You will meet each of our alpacas, hear about their personalities and choose which ‘alpaca partner’ you feel at home with. Guests are paired two people per alpaca. Learn how to halter, groom, interact and lead your Alpaca. Get some understanding of what makes these animals so unique. Rediscover a connection with nature while hiking with your Alpaca through our fields. At the end of the hike, there will be ample time to take photographs with all of the Alpacas. You will be welcomed to relax following the hike with a glass of local apple cider.
We are 2 people who came to our senses and left Toronto in 2007 for a place in the country. In 2009 we brought home 4 impossibly cute Nigerian Dwarf Goats and now we are one of the largest breeders in the country. We give workshops on milking, making cheese and much more. We've birthed more than 180 baby goat on our farm and have helped many people start their own herds. But the Haute Goat Shmurgle was developed so that people could meet, cuddle (Shmurgle) and learn more about these completely joyful animals. Two years ago we brought home 7 adorable alpacas and now we offer Alpaca encounters.
Local Apple Cider and an assortment of Haute Goat cheese samples.
Find yourself in the incredible rolling Northumberland Hills. You will be welcomed just outside the old farmhouse by owners Shain & Debbie. You'll hear some of the history of the farm and then set off with 'your' alpaca through our fields and trails, stopping to admire the views, take pictures and more.
