I took a tour of the Alpaca Farm with Danielle and absolutely loved it. I got to feed, pet, cuddle the alpacas while learning all about them and the farm. It was a fun way to spend an hour or two.

This was an amazing trip and a mist visit for kids. You can feed the alpacas and pet them. The tour was very informative and the guide has a passion for the animals. I am super glad we went there.
