Would you like to experience WALKING WITH ALPACAS on our farm in Northamptonshire?
You will learn about alpacas – including where they come from and their long history as domesticated animals – along with the therapeutic benefits of spending time with them.
After a brief introduction, we’ll introduce you to our lovely animals, show you how to halter and lead the alpaca of your choice (you’ll find they each have very individual characters) then take you on a scenic walk around our Northamptonshire farm with plenty of photo opportunities along the way.
If you need more information or to ask any questions, please call Drew on 07831550118
A ‘WALKING WITH ALPACAS’ VOUCHER MAKES AN IDEAL GIFT. THEY ARE VALID FOR A WHOLE YEAR.
Our 2017 Alpaca Walking season runs all the year round.
A bespoke walk for up to eight people costs £25 per person when pre-booked (£30 when paid on the day). Additional people not wanting to walk an alpaca can accompany for £10
WALKING WITH ALPACAS has been described as ‘idyllic‘, ‘confidence-building‘ & ‘an absolutely fabulous day out‘.
We are very pleased to be working with Stable Mates Therapy – recent feedback from them below:
Great Ground Farm
Stable Mates Therapy is very excited to be working in association with Great Ground Farm. Their wonderful, graceful, funny and interactive herd have proven a real hit with clients. Our clients are mainly, children with behavioural and emotional issues, but also adults with learning difficulties and family groups needing assistance.
The therapeutic benefit of alpacas is clear, with even the most vulnerable able to interact safely with the animals in the beautiful setting of Great Ground Farm.
No one can dismiss the honour of forming a bond of trust with an prey animal, whose very survival relies on their ability to escape the threat of a predator…a category which of course, we humans fall into.
The reindeer are a fascinating and somewhat magical twist to what’s on offer here, as they roam their own forest showcasing Wayne’s stunningly crafted, organic environment.
The opportunities this set up offers from a local school group ‘story telling’ arena, to learning survival skills and workshops, or in our case, a therapeutic backdrop to learning about body language and how animals should live within their own community, is a wonderful bonus that should not be kept a secret any longer!
Thank you to all at Great Ground Farm.
