Here at Spring Farm Alpacas we have to think of the safety of our guests and staff. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all alpaca walking for the rest of March and all of April 2020. We realise this will be very upsetting for anyone who has booked a walk over that period. However, we have to think safety first. We have noted advice from the Government and the British Alpaca Society in relation to the coronavirus outbreak. The latest government advice is that “people should avoid non-essential travel” and “avoid gatherings”.

We will be constantly monitoring the situation with regards to future walks. Those that have booked walks during the rest of March and April will receive a voucher so they can rebook when “things get back to normal” subject to availability. Recipients will be pleased to hear that we don’t date our vouchers so as long as we are here – they are valid.

You may be concerned about the welfare of our walking alpacas but you can rest assured that we will continue to look after them all with the usual care and attention. We aim to use this time (without being able to offer walks) to good end. We will be halter training the 2019 born crias so the walking team may well see new entrants!

These are difficult times for us all but you can rest assured your health is paramount to us. We will keep the diary open for future bookings after April 2020 and keep you in touch of any changes. In the event of continuing restrictions after April, we will continue on the same basis and issue undated credit vouchers.
