Husbandry Services and Courses

We are wife and husband team, Vic and Rich and we have been breeding alpacas since 2016. We are now offering our services to other alpaca keepers or potential owners in the South West. 
We are trained in Camelidynamics, kind and efficient handling techniques, and always prioritise the well-being of all alpacas. 

Alpaca Husbandry Services

We can come out to visit you and your herd, either as a one-off or on a regular basis and help take care of your alpacas' basics needs. This may be one or both of us depending on what is required. 
  • Toenail Trimming and feet checking

  • Body Condition Scoring

  • Eye checks for anaemia (Mucous Membranes).

  • Administering vitamin drenches (If provided and required by customer). 

  • Help & advice with ongoing husbandry

  • Handling and halter training

We also offer relaxed training in kind handling techniques with your own alpacas, to help you to feel more confident doing regular husbandry tasks yourself and to get the most out of your herd. 

Cost: £50 per hour (For one or the both of us). 

We offer our services throughout most of Devon, Dorset & Somerset. Travel is included within 10 miles of EX13 7QR. Additional travel is charged at 95p per mile. 


An Introduction to Alpaca Keeping
Full or Half Day

If you are thinking about keeping alpacas or have have recently started your alpaca journey this course is designed to offer you an enjoyable and complete introduction to the basics of Alpaca Keeping. 
We believe it is important for you to have as much knowledge as possible in order to be prepared for caring for these wonderful animals and they are fascinating to learn about!
We cover:
Basic daily husbandry,
Important care tasks throughout the year
Handling, haltering and walking your alpacas
Top questions and considerations to ask yourself and potential alpaca sellers before going ahead and choosing your alpacas.
Basics of alpaca breeding. 
Ideas for your alpaca fleece and how to get the best out of it. 
We also include some reading and useful information to take away with you. 
Each session is private to you which means we can really tailor the learning to your needs. We also offer an Alpaca Keeper Day which is less in depth learning and more 'getting to know' alpacas!

Cost: £125 Full Day (Including Lunch) or £65 Half Day (Refreshments included).
