Where do Alpacas Come from?


All the information to answer the questions are on our website

Mayfield Alpacas is a fun and educational day out for children and adults

We are of course a working farm, but we also have a visitor centre, educational facilities, llama trekking, and a shop selling Peruvian handcrafted garments, books, greetings cards, toys, etc.

We also have our own 'Alpaca Experience' an exhibition devoted to the history of Peru, its indigenous cultures, the alpaca, and Mayfield in particular.

During your stay you can visit our lovely coffee shop offering meals and snacks, home-made cakes, and refreshments, or we can provide a packed lunch.

We are now taking bookings from schools for 2011. Prices are based on a minimum party of 10 children and we offer 1 free teacher per 15 children.

Simply let us know which option you require, and the number of children and teachers who will be attending. Please phone us for details of prices.
