Auld Mill Alpacas
Opening 2nd September !
. . . but it’s not all leaning on gates in the sunshine ! With more than 60 alpacas to care for, and more every year, there is always something to do.
Winter is a time for doing indoor jobs and for keeping the alpacas comfortable and fed. The alpacas need regular hay feeds and to have their water troughs kept ice-free.
In Spring and Summer, life gets busier with birthings, matings and shearing. We also have large amounts of lovely fleece to sort and prepare for spinning.
Autumn-time is one of consolidation. We keep a careful watch on our females’ pregnancies and we’re knitting, weaving and crocheting and awaiting the delivery of more of our gorgeous craft-spun yarns.
All year round, we are maintaining fences, buildings, making improvements and keeping everything up to date and smart.
We welcome visitors on Alpaca Days Out year-round too !
