An introduction to keeping happy healthy alpacas

Listen darling, ditch the book and get some hands on training !

2024 course date - 20th April

We normally only hold one husbandry course per year and spaces are limited so please book early!

We have been breeding Alpacas for over 25 years and have a wealth of experience to share. Join us at the informal, friendly setting of Burnt Fen Alpacas surrounded by our extended family of alpacas. Our workshop is designed to introduce you to general alpaca husbandry, with an emphasis on handling and training to ensure you have happy trusting alpacas and give you the insight and confidence to start your own alpaca adventure. 

The course will cover day to day care, paddock layout, shelters, fencing with routine healthcare, training and handling.
This is hands on course and you will be getting up close and personal with the alpacas, so please dress accordingly and don't wear your best jeans or shoes! 
We like to end the session by taking some of the boys (alpacas) for a short walk so you can get a good feel of how to handle them and see how they interact with each other.
We want you to feel confident that you know how to keep your alpacas happy and healthy.


The course runs from 9.30am - 1pm.
Cost per person        £95
