Thinking about owning alpacas? Then come to our free alpaca open day on the 13th March 2016 here at Spring Farm Alpacas in East Sussex and learn about alpacas, handling alpacas, alpaca husbandry and how they will fit into your life! The alpaca open day is for anyone who is contemplating alpaca ownership and is intended to give you an a really good feel for what is involved in ownership and what you might expect to experience as owners. We started in alpacas with absolutely no farming background so we know what it is like to be beginners – so please feel free to ask questions and we promise not to blind you with science!
Our alpaca open day can go ahead whatever the weather as we have a warm office to cover the indoor items and can demonstrate handling etc. under cover if the weather takes a turn for the worse. As some of the day will be spent out doors, you may like to bring some warm clothing and because of our bio security, we will ask you to dip your footwear prior to going into our yard and farm facilities. We can’t promise a culinary feast, but we do provide a light lunch with tea/cakes to keep you going! We have plenty of off road parking on site and we are close to Haywards Heath mainline station if you are contemplating public transport. Lastly, we do ask that you contact us to book a place on the open day as numbers are limited to keep it personal, cater accordingly and to allow us to answer individual questions. We normally start at 10:30am and aim to finish at about 16:30pm.
We run a number of alpaca open days throughout the year, so even if this date doesn’t suit you, please get in contact with us and we will put your name down for the next alpaca open day that we are running.
