How do I adopt an alpaca?

To adopt an alpaca just click on buy now and choose if you’d like a bronze, silver or gold adoption. You can adopt an alpaca for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your cuddly alpaca in your adoption pack.

Your alpaca adoption will last for 12 months, and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners. So by buying an adoption, you’ll be helping animals in the wild.

Schools and group organisations can also purchase our adoption packages. Please call the office on 01834 812731 to make arrangements.

Fun facts about alpacas

  • Once a year our alpacas get the most amazing haircut. Alpacas are quite slim under their huge wooly coats and the shearers always leave a ‘mop top’ on their heads so they look really comical!
  • Alpaca fleece is hugely sought after. It get spun into a yarn and people use it for knitting as its very warm and very soft.
  • Baby alpacas are called ‘cria’ (pronounced cree-ah).
  • Alpacas always poo in the same spot, as do rhino!
  • Do alpacas spit? They can do yes, it’s to warn people or predators away, or to tell a male alpaca they’re not interested in his advances!
  • There are no wild alpacas – the alpaca is the domesticated version of the vicuña!

Alpaca adoption reviews...

"I loved the fact you got an alpaca plush as well, really completed the present! My boyfriend and I adore alpacas so I adopted them for his birthday and he was over the moon emotional! I really recommend if you know someone who adores alpacas. Such a good price as well. Thank you Folly Farm!"

Abigail Hotchkiss, Weston Super Mare, 05 February 2024

"Thoughly wonderful idea to allow people to adopt an animal. My two aged 5 and 7 absolutely love Folly Farm. So when they were told they could adopt an animal they were so excited and it actually meant the world to them. They visit so many times during a year and will be visiting to see the board with Sofia’s name on. I appreciate all you do. Thank you."

K Jones, Penderyn, 27 October 2022

"Purchased as a gift for a passionate animal lover. Said it was the best gift they had received. The pack is so thoughtfully put together and made her day when it arrived unexpectedly."
