Oxon. Driving Directions: TAKE THE A361 FROM BANBURY TO CHIPPING NORTON. AT SOUTH NEWINGTON TAKE THE LAST LEFT TURN BEFORE THE NATIONAL SPEED LIMIT OUT OF THE VILLAGE WHICH GOES TO BARFORD. WE ARE JUST OVER 1 MILE FROM THAT JUNCTION ON THE LEFT OPPOSITE BUTTERMILK STUD.
Val & Paul, from years of experience of the breeding and management of other farm animals,have created a small herd of Huacaya Alpacas of the majority of colours. The herd is run with a high standard of animal husbandry of a non-invasive nature. We aim to manage our alpacas in a nature-complimentary way which has meant that over the years we have had very few birthing problems, premature cria or nutritional upsets.
We do not run a closed herd but we have not shown for 10 years and we no longer offer outside matings The farm is bounded by a road or arable land on 3 sides and the fourth side is double-fenced 2 metres apart with a ditch between. We also run a flock of High Health Status Pedigree Sheep ( monitored by the Scottish Agricultural College Goat & Sheep Health Scheme).
We do not run any Husbandry Courses on the farm but we are more than willing to offer anybody full and complete support and advice.
We are stockists of alpaca feed and a specialist Alpaca in-feed mineral as sold by JG Animal Health.
Visitors will always be made welcome but please contact us first so that we can give you the time that you deserve.
