Buckinghamshire Gets Up Close and Personal with Some Furry Friends Posted On 10 September 2021

One of the UK’s largest Alpaca farms opened its doors to the public on Saturday, September 4th

 

This was because Alpaca Revolution, at Singleborough, presented the public with an open day. The event, which took place between 10am and 4pm, not only permitted fans to encounter the 950 alpacas, but also offered the chance to tour the farm, and listen to the talks on all things alpaca. Those who attended also got a nice surprise, as they would have encountered discounts on some of the products in the gift shop, suitable for all members of the family, and for all occasions.

Alpaca Revolution is one of the most established and largest herds in the UK, which was born as a result of Nick Harrington-Smith and Shirley Isseyegh combining forces in a new bloodstock breeding venture. The company is now known for quality genetics, the finest of fleeces and an in-depth knowledge of the industry.

Among the alpacas present at their farm, Nick and Shirley boast a range of males, females, and flock guardians. They also offer educational courses for beginners and beyond to help breeders on their journey. And if you’re an extra-keen enthusiast, you can also purchase your own alpaca from the farm.

But if you missed the open day, then do not worry, because there are still many ways that you can get involved with the farm if you’d like. Some of the experiences available include ‘Amble with an Alpaca’, as well as purchasing a morning shift with one of the animals. Full day experiences with the alpacas can even be booked.

And if you consider yourself to be alpaca mad, then Alpaca Revolution may just have the thing for you, because Nick and Shirley have even made it possible to hold large-scale events, such as weddings, at their farm. There is also the opportunity to add alpaca touches to the celebration, such as having an alpaca as the ring bearer.
