Some people walk a dog – Farmer Kate walks Helen the alpaca.

When Helen was born, she spent many months being hand-reared by our farm team and as she was so vulnerable we couldn’t introduce her to any other animal.

We worried for a time whether she’d ever fit in – but Farmer Kate takes her on regular walks around the farm to introduce her to plenty of new friends and we are happy to report she’s doing amazingly well.

Don’t forget you can adopt our alpaca herd online at
