Alpacas originally come from Peru, South America, but we were all born here in the UK. We like eating grass and other treats, lying in the sunshine and, rolling in the dust. Yes, we do occasionally spit, mostly at each other, when a herd mate snaffles our food! We have lots of friends on the farm. There are a few naughty pigs to keep an eye on. Sometimes they try and escape into our field to visit us. The chickens are serious party animals and are always having friends to stay.
Our fields overlook the house where our owners live. The house is more than 500 years old ago and, some people say it is haunted! Records show that a flour miller once lived there, and you can see the old mill wheel in the car park. (view Wikipedia entry)
Busy life rushes by but, it is calm and tranquil in our fields, so pull up a blanket and spend a while enjoying some Peruvian peace.
