Welsh Valley Alpacas is an accessible alpaca farm based in a valley north of Swansea but only a few miles from the M4.
Welsh Valley Alpacas are experienced breeders and can offer support and appropriate training courses such as:
- Meeting Alpacas – half-day session for those who want to know more or spend more time with alpacas. Could you keep alpacas? If you are thinking of keeping alpacas, this will help you ask (and answer) the right questions about what is involved.
- The Alpaca Shepherd – basic care – how to care for your animals; theory and practice. Ideal for those who are about to get alpacas or are new to keeping them.
- The Alpaca Shepherd – a more in-depth look at getting the most from owning alpacas; can be tailored to your needs.
We have had four Open Days during 2018 and had a brilliant turnout. Thank you if you came along. Becoming popular brings its own challenges such as parking and keeping up with the demand for teas and coffee! Therefore, we will be reviewing arrangements for next year – details will appear here.
Planned dates for 2019 are Easter Monday (22 Apr); Spring Bank Holiday Monday (27 May), and; August Bank Holiday Monday (26 Aug).
Alpacas are beautiful, gentle and unusual creatures.
Originally from South America and related to their larger cousins the llamas, they have really made themselves at home in our lovely valley north of Swansea in South Wales. We started breeding them in 2008 and our growing herd has a mixture of babies (cria), youngsters and mums in a range of colours. Our passion is to breed herds of distinction that can be valued across Wales and beyond. We also offer animal husbandry services and training, and a range of alpaca products.
We hope you enjoy the website. Do let us know if you have any questions.
