What you'll do

You will enjoy a Ranch visit with llamas, alpacas and chickens. This experience is up close and interactive. Guests are given the opportunity to feed any of our animals, in or out of the fenced paddock depending on your comfort level. We will put a halter on a couple of the Llamas and or Alpacas and allow you to lead one around a designated area if you wish. You are permitted to touch them and feel their incredibly soft fur. Some of our Llamas and Alpacas may feel comfortable enough to even give you a nose rub on your nose. Their noses are soft like velvet. This is something that is not predicable.
Upon arriving at the property for your booking, you will meet at the barn just behind the house. Masks must be worn for the duration of the Ranch Experience for everyone's safety as per requirements. You will learn their names and be educated on their attributes, history and personalities. You are permitted to take as many photos as you wish and ask questions about our animals.
After your experience you will have a better understanding of your new furry friends. These animals bring joy and a feeling of well-being in all who visit.

Mary and Keith went Llama Trekking 15 years ago and never stopped talking about it. We want to share our joy of llamas and alpacas with others. They have such a calming demeanor that can only be experienced in person. As a Registered Veterinary Technician, Mary has been working at the University of Guelph with animals for over 40 years. Keith had horses as a child and the passion for animals lasted a lifetime.
Mary and Keith are avid outdoorspeople who love dog walking, hiking, trail running, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, mountain biking, kayaking and camping.
