Handlers courses

A fun education in all things alpaca

About the course

 

Our brand new hands-on handlers courses give you the perfect opportunity to learn about all things alpaca at Goodness Farm.

The 2 week course (1 hour per week) is broken down into focused areas, where you will spend time with the alpacas, learn about the species and understand how to care for them. You'll learn about welfare, shelter, feeding and healthcare, as well as the fascinating science and art of the alpaca fleece. You'll also get hand-on, learning how to put on a halter and walk an alpaca.

On completion of the course, students will receive a certificate of achievement.
