Did someone say Alpacas? These quirky residents of Kensington Prairie Farm are light on their feet, but heavy in personality. Book a farm tour or alpaca walk to learn more about the colourful Camelids and their diet, temperament, quirky behaviours, and breeding. You might even get to meet a cria (baby alpaca)! Proceeds from farm tours are donated to Quechua Benefit, a children’s charity in Peru.
Catherine Simpson and Jim Dales have been breeding, raising and showing Huacaya alpacas since 2000. The farm has since grown and they now have 30-plus animals. Alpacas aren’t just good looking and noble, they are hard working animals. Their luxurious shorn wool is used to make sweaters, socks, blankets, and hats—a journey from farm to fibre to fashion. Visit the on-site boutique to browse Canadian-made and imported alpaca products, including apparel, high-quality yarn, and home gifts. The shop also carries specialty foods, such as BC-grown produce, artisanal honey, and grass-fed beef and alpaca meat.
