What is your 'Adopt a Llama' program?
Did you know that you can adopt a Llama or an Alpaca for a month? Unfortunately this doesn't mean that you can put Conswala in your back yard...but you can 'Adopt' one of our herd members for fun and bragging rights while supporting the care of our animals.
You can learn more about this option on our 'Online Shopping' page. When you adopt an animal you will receive a frameable Adoption Certificate, your adopted daughter's Bio, a llama and alpaca fun fact page, a 5x7 color photo, a Lucky Us Farm sticker AND a personalized 'Thank you' video!
The Adopt a Llama / Adopt an Alpaca program makes for a really wonderful and unique gift, a fun treat for yourself, provides a way to enjoy the herd when you can't visit, and is a wonderful way to support the farm!
Do you have regularly scheduled Open Hours?
Yes! We do have a monthly Open Farm day that is free to the public! You can find the dates on our Upcoming Events Page.
All private farm visits (aka 'The Llama and Alpaca Experience') are by appointment only. The cost is $50/hr for a small group of up to 10 people. To schedule an Experience, you can send us an email and we will work with you to find a date that suits all of our schedules.
How do I schedule an appointment to visit the farm?
We do offer Private Farm visits for $50/hr. for a group of up to 10 people. It's a special time to enjoy the herd all to yourselves and to ask as many llama and alpaca questions as your heart desires.
Currently our weekend Farm Visits with Kris are booked through July. However, we do have availability through the week during the summer for a visit hosted by one of our llamazing Farm Team members.
If you are interested in scheduling your Private Visit, please send us an email to request a date and time. We'll be in touch shortly to let you know if we have availability and to confirm your appointment.
Can I schedule a photo shoot?
When you are visiting the farm, you are welcome to take as many cell phone pictures as you please!
If you are interested in scheduling a photo shoot on the farm, please send us an email with your request and we will send you all of the details and a price sheet.
If you would like to book the farm as a photo venue and bring your own photographer with you, we charge a $75/hr photo venue fee. Please reach out to us to request a date.
We do offer seasonal photo 'minis' throughout the year, which includes a 15 minute session with a styled seasonal backdrop (ie. flowers, tractor, hay bales, pumpkins, pine trees, etc) and of course a few members of the herd. You will receive at least 10 digital pictures professionally edited and emailed to you. These shoots will be posted on our Upcoming Events Page when available.
When is your Gift Shop Open?
We are very proud of the 'Llamalicous Boutique', which offers a huge variety of alpaca and llama themed treasures. The Boutique is always available to guests when they are attending an Event or during Open Farm hours.
Can I schedule a birthday party or special event on the farm?
We are always open to new and fun ways to utilize our special space and incorporate our magnificent animals. If you have a special request, please email us with your ideas and we will let you know if we can accommodate you.
What do you do with the money you charge for Events and Visits?
All monies that we raise through farm events goes directly back to the care and well-being of our animals. We are passionate about making sure that our animals are happy and healthy and living in a safe and nurturing environment that provides as many creature comforts to them as we are able. Hence money goes towards endless needs of quality grain, minerals, hay and vet costs, as well as never ending farm improvement projects such as new fencing, building improvements or additions, and pasture and equipment maintenance. When you see us, please don't hesitate to ask what farm improvement projects Kevin is working on and what we are doing to make our animals happy each and every day. It's one of our favorite topics of conversation!
